Jayden de Laura Parents: Mom Malinda And Dad Jacob de Laura
Jayden de Laura was born to his parents, mom Malinda de Laura and dad Jacob de Laura, on August 11, 2001.
The elevating Wildcat quarterback was born and raised in the suburbs of Honolulu, Hawaii. But his locality was not ideal for breeding a class player. Nevertheless, with his parents' help, he could get through.

De Laura, who stands 6 feet tall and weighs 190 pounds, concluded his junior football playing career at Washington State, where he threw for 3,688 yards, 28 touchdowns, and 13 intervenes.
During those two years, he was the starting quarterback for the Cougars football team. In 2021, the Pac-12 Conference Athletic Directors selected him as their Offensive Rookie of the Year.
When the 21-year-old gave his name in the NCAA football transfer portal by the end of last year, he did not tell anyone at first. Instead, Jayden called his father, Jacob, to break the news while Jacob was in the shower.
"I remember waking up in the morning, and I didn't tell anybody. I entered the portal, and I called my dad. I told him I entered the portal, and he was like, 'What?!",
