As a teenager, Jolly played football at Bloomington North High School in Indiana, before later deciding to join the Army. Jolly's interest was rarely captured by his classes. He quit school, earned his equivalency degree, and began running with an older crowd. He drank beer and experimented with drugs, worrying his closest friends. Within months of an arrest for public intoxication-- on the same day he married his high school sweetheart -- Jolly was headed for basic training.
