Jelena Jenson as born in Los Angeles, California and lists her heritage as German. She grew up wanting to work in TV and graduated Magna Cum Laud with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Film and Television Production with an Emphasis in Producing in 2003. While doing her final year at school Jelena was working at JadedVideo (porn) as a Product Manager and spokesperson. The money was ok but not great and Jelena wanted to pay off her student loans. She had no interest in doing hardcore so decided to do some solo stills.
I guess the money was too good because she's now a full time model who's appeared in almost every man's magazine and has made over 20 films.
