Born in Chicago, Illinois on the 30th of December 1984, Jarrod Branch is American male fashion model who is well known for his striking eyes and hair. Branch measures 5’11’’ in height, has blonde hair and blue eyes and is of German, Irish and American Indian ancestry. 
Branch’s career in the fashion industry began at 20 years of age when in 2004 he attended an open call in his hometown of Chicago hosted by Chosen Management. Clearly impressed with what he had to offer and his huge potential, Branch was signed on the spot and in 2005 was also signed to IMG management.
Branch’s first truly high profile job came in 2005 when he was selected to become the face of Jil Sander in a campaign shot by David Sims. Following this debut in the mainstream, the model was featured on Models.com as the focus of a ‘model of the week’ piece that gained him further notoriety within the appropriate circles.
Branch’s runway debut came in September of 2005 when he was hired to walk in spring shows for several high profile brands and houses in New York such as Marc by Marc Jacobs and Cloak. 2006 began for Branch with a cover page spread for Italian Vogue shot by Steven Meisel, and the following month he continued his runway success with an engagement walking for Trovata as part of their fall New York show.
2006 proved to be a hugely successful year in the print side of the industry for Branch, with some of his highlights being a feature in Sisley shot by Terry Richardson, an editorial for French Vogue alongside Valentina Zelyaeva and Natasha Poly shot by Patrick Demarchelier. There was also an editorial in V magazine shot by Terry Tsiolis and an editorial in Japanese GQ magazine.
2007 proved to be a mixture of continued success both in print and on the runway for Branch alongside some upheaval in terms of his representation. Branch became the joint face of Missoni Sport alongside Alana Zimmer and appeared in the coveted fall issue of Numero Homme magazine shot by Mauro Mongiello and Sofia Sanchez.
During this time, Branch also decided to part ways with IMG management and instead signed on new terms with New York Model Management with the hopes of furthering his career even more.
