Git - tracking each issue as a branch


We're looking at using Jira, but have one requirement that I can't tell for sure Jira will do - hoping someone can confirm/deny for me...

We want to be able to associate each issue (bug, feature, task...) with a new branch in Git, and log associated commit statements (which may be more than one) with each issue.

So, for example (pseudo):

git branch issue_101 work
git commit -m "issue_101 some comments"
QA spots a problem a bit more work
git commit -m "issue_101 some more comments"
git merge issue_101

I know that Jira has auto-association of Git commits with an issue, but I can't tell whether it will/can associate a branch correctly with an issue, and track commits for that branch.

Has/is anyone done/doing this? Any resources?
