Early life and education

Jenna was raised in both Jamaica and Petion-Ville, Haiti by her Jewish father Bennet Wolfeld who was originally from Puerto Rico, and who was the owner of a chain of leather factories there.

Before Jenna was born, Bennet and her American mother Sheila Greenfeld moved to Jamaica because Bennet was looking to expand his operations there. Jenna hasn’t mentioned having any siblings, and is thus believed to be an only child.

She was five years old when the family moved to Haiti, and was 15 when they came to the USA. She attended a local high school and was a highly active child, playing a couple of sports during those four years, including tennis and soccer, and also wrote columns for the school’s sports magazine.

Upon matriculating in 1992, she enrolled at the State University of New York’s College at Geneseo, but transferred to Binghamton University in 1994, from which she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in French and English in 1996.
