Jelena was born on October 7, 1981 in Los Angeles, California. Her excellent genes are a result of a wonderful mix of German, Russian and Jewish descent. She attended Chapman University in Orange County, California and graduated Magna Cum Laude in May 2003 (age 22) with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Film and Television Production with an Emphasis in Producing. Jelena was a popular girl with excellent grades and didn’t have a problem to fit in any group of kids. She didn’t watch porn in her teen years, not because it was forbidden but because it didn’t do anything for her. During her college years, she started working as production manager and marketing manager for an online adult DVD retail website. Also, she served on the executive boards of Gamma Beta Phi Honor Society and Omicron Delta Kappa Leadership Honor Society.
After college graduation, Jelena had her first photo shoot with Scott St. James; the photos were published in the August 2003 edition of Club magazine. Meanwhile, she started doing leg and foot modeling with FMConcepts. She worked with many photographers, including Suze Randall, Holly Randall, Ken Marcus and Richard Avery. She also collaborated with the directors Andrew Blake and Bunny Luv. She started as a "softcore" actress only, but in 2009 she began doing hardcore boy/girl scenes but only on her website and exclusively with her husband Matt Erickson. Jelena Jensen was part of many photo shoots for numerous websites, and has been featured in various adult magazines, including the March 2010 issue of Penthouse. She took part in two Andrew Blake productions, and has a recurring role in Digital Playground's Jack's Playground series. You may remember her as host of Playboy TV's Totally Busted. Besides porn, Jensen also appears in the mainstream (non porn) dark horror comedy film Bad Biology (2010); and she also hosted a show titled The J Spot on Vivid Radio.
In her career of thirteen, Jelena took part in 70+ adult films. Besides performing, she also produced a lot of clips for her website (together with other porn actresses). Her work was rewarded with a XBIZ Award for Web Babe of the Year (2010), for the website Twistys as an interviewer, where she often performs them topless. In 2013 she won an AVN for Best Solo Girl Website.
Although she identified herself as 100% heterosexual in past interviews, Jensen now identifies as bisexual. Porn gives her the freedom to work what she loves and to explore herself in every way. Jelena enjoys the fact that she created a recognizable name for herself and that she is leading a successful porn career. Her fans are super important to her because they get her going with their continuous search of her name. They can interact with her on her social media. Date posted: September 9, 2016
