The Net Worth of Yessica Kumala

Yessica Kumala’s net worth remains undisclosed, as little is known about her career, but she probably benefits from the success of her husband, as Holloway has a net worth estimated to be over $22 million, thanks to his high valued acting work on mainstream television.

Early Life, Career, and Relationship

Yessica is of Chinese descent, and spent her early years in Indonesia before her family moved to the US to look for better opportunities and a chance of a better life.

After completing her education, she started working in a nightclub, and it was during this period that she met and started a relationship with Josh Holloway.

Josh was hanging out with friends, and spotted a group of women he wanted to talk to before he was stopped by a slap at the shoulder from Yessica. She looked him up and down, then immediately asked for his number – he was surprised and intrigued at the same time. After he told her his number, she left and returned a few moments later with her phone, asking for his number again. The couple stayed in a relationship for a few years, and during this time, Josh was still looking for his big break.

Josh Holloway and Yessica Kumala

Just after completing the shoot for the pilot of the series “Lost”, he proposed to her, and the two were married in 2004.

Husband – Josh Holloway

Josh was born in San Jose, California USA, the second child of four. His father worked as a surveyor, while his mother was a nurse. When he was two years old, the family moved to Free Home, in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Georgia. He developed a love for films at a young age, and after matriculating from Cherokee High School, enrolled at the University of Georgia. However, he only completed his first year, as the financial costs of the university were too much for his family to bear.

He returned to California and settled in Los Angeles, where he began looking for work as a model. He started doing print and catwalk work, leading to high profile clients. Some of the companies he worked for during this time include Donna Karan, Dolce & Gabbana, and Calvin Klein.

One of his first acting appearances came in 1993, when he worked alongside Aerosmith for the music video of “Cryin” in which he is seen alongside Alicia Silverstone. The work motivated him, and he looked for other acting projects, leading to roles in “Angel”, “Doctor Benny”, “Moving August”, and “Cold Heart”.

Josh Holloway’s Rise to International Recognition

Early in his career, he did a lot of guest work, appearing in projects such as “NCIS”, “Walker, Texas Ranger”, and “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation”. One of Holloway’s first notable roles was as the lead in the film “Sabretooth”, which aired on the Sci-Fi Channel.

In 2004, he got his big break when he was cast in the television show “Lost”, which eventually earned him international fame.

The project was both good and bad for him, as his fame increased significantly, but it also left him little time to capitalize on other offer, including a chance to work with Brad Pitt. He had a few other projects including “Whisper”, and an appearance in live-action segments of “Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium”. He was set to appear in “X-Men 4” before it was canceled in 2005, but meantime he was gaining numerous awards and accolades during his run in “Lost”, including a Saturn Award for Best Actor.

In 2010, he was cast in the film “Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol” working alongside Tom Cruise. He also had a lead role in the show “Intelligence”, playing a character with the ability to access electromagnetics with his mind. In 2016, he had another notable role when he was cast in “Colony”, playing a former FBI Agent who is forced to work with the government to help take down the resistance within Los Angeles.

Personal Life

Holloway proposed to Kumala in Oahu, Hawaii just after the pilot episode of “Lost” was shot, and they married in 2004. They have two children together, and reside in California. Since marriage, she has mainly taken a background role, supporting her husband while raising the children. The family has been spotted together in several locations, including beaches where the family often spends time bonding.
