Jenna Jenovich was born near Belgrade, Serbia. She is the eldest of four sisters. Jenna’s determination comes from her parents, who moved to Germany in 1993, from their war-torn homeland, amidst the turmoil that collectively became known as the Yugoslav Wars, to protect their children, and in search of economic prosperity. Inspired by a better life for their entire family, and driven by their own dreams, Jenna’s parents immigrated to the U.S. in 1999, with their young children.
Growing up, Jenna participated in competitive sports and excelled. She was first introduced to modeling at age 14, when a talent manager at a wedding discovered her. Self-described as “just your average Serbian-born model next door, practical joker, sports nut, fashion junkie, movie addict, and music freak”,
Jenna is affable with a a great sense of humor, but perhaps most importantly quick witted and well traveled and educated, speaking no fewer than four languages fluently bolstered by her frequent international travel. Her work keeps her busy traveling all over the U.S. year-round, but she still calls Dallas, Texas home. When Jenna is not working, she enjoys traveling for pleasure; cooking; reading; exercising; playing volleyball; skiing; hiking; rollerblading; bike riding; target shooting; dancing; watching movies; listening to music by some of her favorite artist; and being with her family and friends.
