She earned an English degree from Brown University.
Capshaw graduated from Harvard-Westlake School in Los Angeles in 1994. She then enrolled at Brown University, where she appeared in productions of Arcadia and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. She graduated in 1998 with a B.A. in English. During summers, she attended classes at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts (RADA) in London, where she appeared as Puck in a production of A Midsummer Night's Dream.
Capshaw married Christopher Gavigan on May 22, 2004, at her family's East Hampton estate. The couple have a son and three daughters. Capshaw is the godmother of Sasha Alexander's daughter, Lucia (born 2006).
In 2009, she became a regular on the medical drama Grey's Anatomy. It was first reported in December 2008 that Capshaw would be joining the cast of Grey's Anatomy as pediatric surgeon Arizona Robbins, for a multi-episode arc. Initially scheduled to appear in three episodes of the show's fifth season, series creator Shonda Rhimes later extended Capshaw's contract to appear in all of the season's remaining episodes, becoming a series regular in the sixth season.
She was established as a love-interest for orthopedic resident Callie Torres (Sara Ramirez). Series creator Shonda Rhimes was pleased with the chemistry between Robbins and Torres, citing the addition of Capshaw to the cast as an element of the season of which she was most proud. Speaking of the new addition, Rhimes said: "I love Jessica Capshaw, and when I say love I mean love. She couldn't be a more wonderful person, and I feel like the chemistry Arizona and Callie have feels like the Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) and Derek (Patrick Dempsey) chemistry to me. I find them delightful to watch." Initial media reaction to the character was positive. Matt Mitovich of TV Guide described her as a "fan favorite", and Chris Monfette for IGN praised the addition of "fresh, new characters", such as Robbins over the course of the season. In March 2018, Capshaw exited Grey’s Anatomy, with the producers citing creative reasons. Capshaw posted a statement on Twitter, highlighting the significance of her character: "She was one of the first members of the LGBTQ community to be represented in a series regular role on network television. Her impact on the world is permanent and forever."
