No one would ever guess that it was once Jenna who’d stay out late every night, doing as she pleased. She’s now known as the caring and responsible aunt to Jeremy, Katherine and Elena Gilbert, but her youth painted a very different picture. Born in the iconic decade of the 1980s, Jenna is the younger sister to Miranda Sommers; who later married into the name of Gilbert. Miranda was always seen as more of the older, sensible sibling in comparison to Jenna. Both attended Beacon Falls high school, and while her older sister was at the top of the social ladder, Jenna was elsewhere, happily doing her own thing. She was best friends with Mason Lockwood and the two would get into all sorts of mischief together. Stealing alcohol from Mason’s father was the easiest thing on their to-do list, and something they would do frequently. There weren’t many places they could enjoy it, though a few of their hiding spots included the cemetery and underneath the bleachers on the football field. Jenna was always getting herself into sticky situations she had a hard time coming out of, including the use of drugs, which she once became a frequent user of. Her sister, on the other hand, was ‘Miss Beacon Falls’ and the apple of their parents’ eye. It wasn’t something Jenna resented her for, however. In fact, Miranda was always there for her younger sibling, often helping her so she wouldn’t get in trouble with their parents. It’s one of the things that made them close as sisters.
Over the years, Jenna’s grown up, but not completely. She’s still very much the clumsy, loveable yet scatter-brained girl she’s always been. College came and went, but she’s always remained close to home. When it’s come to the topic of love, or what’s supposed to be love, the redhead hasn’t had the best of luck in the past. She had a brief relationship with John Gilbert, who was the younger brother of her sister’s husband, Grayson. However, it was purely sexual and didn’t end on the best terms, leaving Jenna with a burning hatred for the man. She also dated the eldest Fell, Theodore — known as Teddy — who she’d always had a crush on in high school. After they’d been going out for a while, Jenna fell completely in love with him. The couple were happy, as was their relationship, but the way it ended was as though Jenna was destined for a string of bad breakups. Teddy cheated on her and as a result, she ended things with him and hasn’t spoken to him since. It’s been a while since Jenna has actually been back to Beacon Falls for a prolonged visit. Upon the recent bad news about the passing of Miranda and Grayson Gilbert, Jenna found herself returning to take care of their children. She’s never been the responsible type, but it’s something she wanted to do. She can’t just leave Elena, Katherine and Jeremy hanging, and she knows it’s something her sister would have appreciated. As their legal guardian, she knows becoming an authority figure will take some adjusting, but she’s more than willing to do whatever it takes.
