Early Life, Education, and Career Beginnings
Jael’s family is from Colombia, but when she was two years old the family moved to the US, and settled in New York City. A few years later, she was discovered as a child model and signed a deal with Ford Modeling Agency, a well-known agency based in New York , which has been running since 1946. While she doing some modeling work, she continued with her education.
After matriculating from high school, she enrolled at the Fashion Institute of Technology, taking up a major in exhibit design and multimedia studies. The school is a part of the State University of New York, and as the name denotes, is connected to the fashion industry. The school has been operational since 1944, and numerous distinguished alumni have emerged from its walls, including Calvin Klein, Michael Kors, and Scott Salvator. After completing her degree, she decided to pursue modeling and acting fully, moving to Los Angeles, California hoping to get her big break.
Modeling and Television Work
After moving to Los Angeles, de Pardo began training under well-known acting and modeling coaches such as Susan Batson. It was only a matter of time before she got modeling work, appearing in commercials and print campaigns for high profile companies, such as Apple, Nissan, Sony, Verizon, and Levis. She also participated in the anti-tobacco Truth Campaign, which led her to make appearances at the Warped Tour, House of Blues, and in the program “MTV Beach House”.
In 2004 she had her first acting project, in the independent film “Subway Café”, appearing alongside Crystal Allen and Rick Gonzales. The film gained positive reviews which opened more opportunities for her, and the following year she was hired by the television network Current TV as a producer, field reporter, and host. The network ran from 2005 to 2013 and started as a user-generated channel before it became an independent news network, before being bought by the Al Jazeera Media Network.
With the sale, all of its off-air staff were retained to create Al Jazeera America, but Jael was moved on to other projects.
Travel, Paranormal, and Recent Activities
Jael’s fame continued to rise as she became a part of the travel show “Destination Truth” during its third season. She worked there as a researcher and field producer, making appearances throughout the season. The show follows host and paranormal investigator Josh Gates, as he travels with his team to explore claims of the supernatural.
The show mainly featured cryptozoological creatures or mythical beasts claimed to have been encountered all around the world. Her success with that show led her to become a team member in “Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files”, which began airing on Syfy in 2010. The show is led by former FBI trainee Ben Hansen, who reviews viral videos and photographs from the interne, and the team then investigates if there is any real paranormal activity or if it is all faked.
