Jury began wrestling in the seventh grade at Beecher Junior High in Hazel Park, MI and demonstrated his grappling talents early, going 12-2 in his first year. Jury then began training in Brazilian jiu-jitsu at the age of 13, being taken under the wing of Professor Don Richard. From there, Jury transitioned into MMA when he was 14 and had his first fight when he was 15. Jury later moved to nearby Fenton, Michigan with his mother and step-father, a mechanic.
