Jenna J. Ross is a critically acclaimed adult film star, glamour model and cam girl who has been performing in porn since 2011. Famous for her thrilling three-ways and best-selling all-girl movies, Jenna continues to receive many notable “Unsung Starlet of the Year”, “Best Supporting Actress” and “Best Sex Scene – All-Girl” nominations at the AVN and XBIZ Awards.
Wondering where it all began? Born and raised in Boston, Massachusetts, Jenna has mixed Portuguese, French and Irish heritage. Jenna attended private school from the fourth grade onwards and also attended a performing arts high school. Talking about these early years during her December 2013 Adult DVD Talk interview, Jenna explained how;
“I was born in Boston and lived there for 22 years. Both my parents are psychologists (laughs) Psychologist parents to a porn star, figure that one out! I went to private school my entire life, starting in 4th grade. There were 36 kids in my 8th grade graduating class and 86 in my senior year. I came from a micro environment and I wasn’t very popular contrary to I’m sure what all of my fans think. People say ‘how could people not love you! You’re so sweet!’ Well, because I went to a performing arts high school and I like the color pink and I was a cheerleader. I was the embodiment of everything that had tortured them in public school so my high school hated me. I wasn’t one of the popular kids but it never really stopped me from being me. I’ve always been on to do what makes me happy and if people don’t like it, that’s their problem. So I’ve always been strong willed like that. It comes with being a Sagittarius”.
Jenna has been a keen athlete all her life – starting with gymnastics when she was 2, pursuing figure skating between the ages of 4 and 12, as well as cheerleading throughout high school taking ballet classes throughout her childhood. Jenna has talked about her athletic aptitude within her December 2013 Adult DVD Talk interview, stating that;
“I’ve been athletic since I was born. I learned how to do the monkey bars when I was 2. I did gymnastics when I was 2. I decided I didn’t really want to stick with it. What happened to me is that I got good at whatever sport I was doing and then the question came, do I go pro with this or do I just stop? You hit the point where you start to compete and every time I got to that point, I didn’t want to dedicate my life to it, so I changed sports. I did gymnastics from 2 to when I was 12. I did figure skating from 4 until I was also 12. Then I found cheerleading and that was my only sport. I also found dance, I was a ballerina for a number of years. So I did all the girly things. I also did horseback riding, so, yeah, all the girly things”.
Wondering how Jenna first discovered her porn star potential? Well, Jenna first began working in the adult entertainment industry as a nude model and over the years she has been featured within such prominent publications as Hustler, Hustler’s Barely Legal, 18eighteen, Taboo and Naughty Neighbors. During this time Jenna also worked as a waitress and barista but she was eager to explore new career avenues.
Consequently, in 2011 Jenna moved from Boston to Orlando, Florida, whereupon she started submitting pictures to Playboy as well as contacting a friend who had already started working in the adult film industry. Within a matter of weeks Jenna had relocated once again to Los Angeles, California, in order to shoot her first ever sex scenes! Jenna discussed this pivotal period of her life in greater detail during her July 2014 Men’s Mag Daily interview, highlighting how;
“I was just in a rut and I wasn’t progressing at all so I knew I needed a change. I was just stalled…I was a waitress and a barista…I had just moved from Boston to Florida and I didn’t want to be a waitress anymore. I was tired of making minimum wage so I submitted some pictures to Playboy and I never heard back from them but through that I learned that I really liked nude modeling. I had been doing nude modeling for about a year so by the time I got to Florida I kind of just jumped in with both feet and never looked back. I lived in Florida for like a week before I moved to L.A…
In retrospect, if I psychologically look at my behavior then I would say yes that there were many warning signs. I just didn’t know what it was all about at the time. I had sex all over my high school campus. That’s not your typical behavior but I never gave it much thought at that age. I jumped into porn so there wasn’t a lot of thinking involved. I knew I liked sex so I figured I would be good at it…
I didn’t have any expectations. I wasn’t thinking about what it could be like or what it should be like. I just got into it for the experience…I wasn’t nervous at all. I actually had a friend out here who was doing it and she didn’t say it was dangerous or anything so I wasn’t nervous. I knew exactly what I was doing…I basically lived in 3 different states in a matter of 2 weeks. Basically, I was looking for a fresh start and I got to be who I wanted to be and not who people thought I should be. It’s important that you define yourself”.
Jenna J. Ross : Adult Film Career
In August 2011 Jenna filmed her first ever solo sex scenes for ATKingdom. This saucy solo shoot was showcased in the DVD compilation title ATK Real Amateurs 3 (2012) which was nominated for “Best Pro-Am Release” at the 2013 AVN Awards. During this time Jenna also filmed her first ever boy/girl scenes for the popular porn site Fucked Hard 18 and she shot her first ever girl/girl scenes with Mischa Brooks for the Lethal Hardcore production Seduced By A Real Lesbian 12 (2011) that was nominated for “Best All-Girl Release” at the 2013 AVN Awards.
Jenna was comfortable performing in front of a camera having previously attended a performing arts high school that granted her access to a wealth of camera and lighting equipment. In fact, Jenna actually shot a porn production several years before she made her official adult film industry debut! As Jenna herself explained during her December 2013 Adult DVD Talk interview;
“I had made a porn waaaay before I had gotten into porn. I went to a Performing Arts High School so we had access to things like HiRes cameras and lights. So me and my friends decided to make a porn because we were bored and that’s what you do. (laughs) So the concept for me of getting in front of a camera wasn’t that far out there. Of course, you have butterflies and you’re nervous the first time you do it professionally because you know the whole world’s going to see it. The other one, no one is ever going to see…
I went to a Performing Arts High School so I came in with a background in acting, a background in light design and an ability to solve my own photos. I understood angles. I understood how light played off your body. So in my mind, I already knew what I was doing. I’m sure you can see a progression throughout my scenes in which I honed and perfected my skills. It’s definitely become perfected over time but when I started I understood the concept of how cameras worked, how angles worked, how light was going to play off my body. So I already had a step up from everybody else”.
During this December 2013 Adult DVD Talk interview Jenna also explained how she chose her porn star stage name ‘Jenna J. Ross’. As Jenna puts it in her own words;
“My legal name is very complicated and very hard to spell and pronounce so when I came up with my first name, I wanted something really easy for everyone to say and spell and no one would have problems pronouncing it. Basically I wanted to eliminate the problems I’ve had my entire life where people fuck up my name constantly. So that’s where Jenna came from. Originally, my last name was Jinx. But my agent told me to change it because it was too cutesy. But I didn’t want to get rid of that part of my identity, so I shortened Jinx to J and just added Ross. Plus no other porn girls have a middle initial and I like being different”.
From this point onwards Jenna began to appear in an impressive collection of best-selling porn productions including Against Her Will 2 (2012) for New Sensations which was nominated for “All-Girl Release of the Year” at the 2014 XBIZ Awards, Revenge of the Petites (2012) for ATKingdom which won “Feature Movie of the Year” at the 2012 Urban X Awards, and Pretty Dirty (2012) for New Sensations that featured Jenna as its DVD cover model. Jenna enjoyed collaborating with director Eddie Powell on Pretty Dirty, enthusing in her XCritic column interview how;
“I love love love that DVD! In fact it was the DVD I brought and signed at AVN’s. It was my 2nd shoot with New Sensations and the brilliant Eddie Powell. I would love to say I knew what I was doing but I was still very new. Eddie has an amazing eye and a knack for getting girl’s to relax and have fun. It still blows me away that it’s me”.
Over the years Jenna has become famous for her thrilling three-ways and amazing group sex scenes. We recommend checking out her raunchy collaboration with Elsa Jean and Chad White in Jacky St. James’ Tabu Tales/Digital Sin production Me My Brother And Another (2015) which won “Best Taboo Relations Movie” at the 2017 AVN Awards and her epic orgies with Alex Grey, Piper Perri, Aubrey Star, Veronica Rodriguez, Katerina Kay, Alex Jones, Xander Corvus, Chad White and Michael Vegas in the Colette production Gangbangs and Orgies, Oh My! (2016) that was nominated for “Best Orgy/Gangbang Movie” at the 2017 AVN Awards.
In recent years Jenna has filmed some incredibly immersive Three’s Cumpany and After School virtual reality sex scenes with Kyra Rose, Sami Parker and Lily Jordan that were released via Naughty America VR in April 2017 and February 2018. Jenna enjoys shooting these types of saucy group sex scenes, conveying within her Sinful Magazine interview how;
“I LOVE sex and enjoy all different sorts of sex acts with both boys and girls. Not every scene is a walk in the park of course, but I like to make my scenes real and genuine…For me the best thing about doing porn is the freedom it gives me. It allows me to explore my sexuality”.
Most notably, Jenna has shared several terrific three-ways with Katrina Jade and Chad White, as well as Lola Foxx and Clover, in her AE Films star showcase Jenna J. Ross (2014). Directed by Jay Rock, this sizzling star showcase received a recommendation from XCritic column writer Don Houston who commented in his October 2014 film review that;
“The title is called Jenna J. Ross, a showcase spotlight of four scenes starring the 25 year old brunette from Boston where she was allowed to provide significant input on how things were done. I’ve enjoyed a number of Jenna’s scenes over the past several years so I was admittedly curious how this endeavor would work out, the company best known as a high end retailer over the years now trying out production for a change…
Jenna J. Ross by director Jay Rock for Adult DVD Empire was a pleasant little excursion starring Jenna in four scenes, some lesbian trysts as well as GGB action, the minimal extras including a trailer and digital copy of the flick for those who want to explore it using other media. Jenna was an active participant on both the men and women in the scenes, her partners spending a suitable amount of time pleasuring her too, the technical values well handled to make this a “must have” set a new scenes for any fans of hers, the DVD earning a rating of Recommended for a general audience. In short, Jenna J. Ross was a fine opening salvo for the company as it expands into producing scenes itself, the multitude of showcase spotlights on the market always served well when competition heats up so check it out”.
In addition to these hot hardcore collaborations Jenna is an incredibly popular girl/girl performer.

But hold on, it gets even better! Jenna has since shared a sizzling shoot with India Summer in Mother Lovers Society 15 (2016) for Sweetheart Video which was nominated for “Best Older Woman/Younger Girl Movie” at the 2017 AVN Awards, she filmed a saucy scene with Summer Day for the Web Young production Panty Raid (2017) that was nominated for “Best All-Girl Movie” at the 2018 AVN Awards and she has starred alongside Stephanie West in the Girlfriends Films production Women Seeking Women 151 (2018).
