Jaele Patrick, born April 3, 1988 in Lilydale, Victoria, attends college in Texas as she boosts her diving and academic credentials. She moved to the USA on a sports scholarship at Texas A&M University where she is completing her Bachelor of Business in Communications & Sports Management. Patrick's victory in the 3 meter at the 2012 NCAA Championships, against the best college divers from around the country, was the first diving title for the Texas A&M program. The college was also home to current Australian diver Grant Nel. After taking the 2006 Australian Junior Championship title in the 3 meter event, and winning bronze in the 1 meter, Patrick competed at the World University Games in Bangkok where she gained selection for the 2010 Commonwealth Games, and showed her progression in the sport as she won bronze in both the 3 meter and the 3 meter synchro with Olivia Wright.

She also finished just outside the medals in the 1 meter by taking 4th place. Patrick returned home off the back of her breakthrough victory at the NCAA Championships to finish 2nd behind Sharleen Stratton in the 3 meter springboard event at the Olympic nomination trials. She joined the London bound team to compete at the USA and Canadian Grand Prix events where she finished 11th and 16th in the 3 meter. Jaele is the daughter of Stuart and Simone Patrick and has one brother. At Texas A&M University she majors in business and enjoys relaxing with friends, snowboarding, and wakeboarding. Her most memorable moments in diving are winning the Junior Nationals and finishing second at the Open Nationals in Australia. Her career ambition is to be an athletic trainer or work in the media. Jaele chose Texas A&M University in part because of its strong diving team.
