She was Elena and Jeremy Gilbert’s maternal aunt, and she became their legal guardian after their parents (Grayson and Miranda Gilbert) were murdered in a car accident. She is also Miranda Gilbert’s younger sister and Grayson Gilbert’s sister-in-law and remained unconscious of the supernatural powers in Mystic Falls for most of the series until near the conclusion of the second season when she eventually learned the truth. Logan Fell, who was transformed into a vampire by Anna and later slain by the vampire hunter Alaric Saltzman, was one of her ex-boyfriends. She then began an affair with Alaric.
Mason Lockwood, Tyler Lockwood’s uncle, was also a high school classmate of hers. Jenna was a party girl who regularly indulged in drink and drugs before becoming Elena and Jeremy’s guardian, as Mason disclosed when he returned to town for a visit. Katherine Pierce forced Jenna to spy on Elena and her lover Stefan Salvatore in Season Two, and after the two ignored her advice to split up, she forced Jenna to stab herself in the stomach in retaliation for not taking her seriously. Doctors at the hospital told her she was lucky to be alive.
