She has career-high WTA rankings of 132 in singles, achieved in February 2018, and 120 in doubles, set on July 16, 2018. Loeb has won eight singles titles and eight doubles titles on the ITF Women's Circuit.
She won the New York State high-school title as a sophomore. Loeb won the singles and doubles 18s championships at the 2012 USTA National Winter Championship, and won the doubles at the 2013 USTA International Spring Championship. Loeb attended the University of North Carolina for her freshman and sophomore years (2013–15), and won the 2015 NCAA Division I Tennis Women's Championships.
Born in Bronxville, New York, Loeb was raised in Ossining, New York. Her parents are Jerry, who owns a butcher business, and Susan Loeb, who is a substitute teacher. She is the youngest of four siblings, and is Jewish. For middle school, she attended the Anne M. Dorner Middle School, while playing high school tennis.
Her mother, a tennis instructor, was her first coach. She began hitting tennis balls at Club Fit in Briarcliff at age five, and then at the Hardscrabble Club in Brewster at age seven, and by the age of 11 she was competing in national tournaments. She won a New York State title for Ossining High School as a sophomore, following in the footsteps of her sister Jenna who had won three. She finished her high school studies on-line.
Loeb won the singles and doubles 18s championships at the 2012 USTA National Winter Championship, won the doubles and finished runner-up in singles at the 2013 USTA International Spring Championship, and was a quarterfinalist at the 2013 Wimbledon Juniors.
Loeb attended the University of North Carolina for her freshman and sophomore years (2013–15), studying sports administration. She played tennis for the North Carolina Tar Heels, and became the first freshman in close to 30 years to win both the Riviera/ITA Women's All-American Championship (defeating Carol Zhao of Stanford in the final of the 2015 NCAA Division I Tennis Championships; making her the NCAA Women's Singles Tennis National Champion) and the USTA/ITA National Indoor Intercollegiate Championship. She was also the first singles national champion in UNC women's tennis history. After she won the national championship, the Village and Town of Ossining declared August 3 to be Jamie Loeb Day. In both her freshman and her sophomore seasons, she was named Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) Player of the Year and ITA All American.
Loeb won her biggest title to date at the 2015 Stockton Challenger in the doubles event, partnering Sanaz Marand. She received a wild card at the 2015 US Open and played Danish fourth seed Caroline Wozniacki in the first round, losing in straight sets. Loeb won two ITF singles titles in 2016, at tournaments in Surprise, Arizona, and El Paso, Texas.
