Jenna Marie Christian
An alluring author and advocate with an angelic spirit doesn’t begin to capture the essence of this ambitious young woman, Jenna Marie Christian.
She was born Jennifer Marie Christian on Chicago’s Westside to the legendary blues singer little Johnny Christian and the beautiful Mary Christian-Jones. Jenna realized at an early age through witnessing the impact of her fathers music on others and her mothers hard work as an educator and dedicated servant for the Lord that she wanted to make a difference in the lives of others in every way that she could. Jenna published her first book (You Broke My Heart, Now Go to Hell) in 2008 to use her personal story as a way to spread the message of “allow every adversity to make you better and not bitter” to every young woman across America and beyond.
Jenna is known for her charismatic persona, incredible sense of humor, radiant smile and charm. She is also notably recognized for being driven by her passion to help others. Her desire to improve her community is shown through her countless volunteer efforts. Jenna Marie can be found tirelessly working everywhere she is needed from preschools, shelters, crisis hotlines, churches, to food drives. Jenna recently completed training to become a certified domestic abuse advocate in Illinois as well as joined the team Red Pump Project Chicago (www.theredpumpproject.com) in their mission to promote HIV/AIDS awareness.
Although the career of Jenna Marie Christian is just beginning, her main goal it to always help others anyway that she can, through writing, advocacy, speaking, maintaining a positive attitude, and working harder each day to become a better person.
