She spent her childhood and youth on Staten Island with her family – her parents are Adele and Sal Vulcano Sr., but they divorced when Jenna was a little girl. Her father re-married to Dianne Fernandez, however, neither Jenna, nor Sal Jr, or the third sibling, Dana, ever suffered from lack of attention and support from their parents; on the contrary, even though they decided to separate, they supported all their children’s endeavors and choices.
Jenna studied in Monsignor Farrell High School on Staten Island, and matriculated from there in 2004. Then she entered Kingsborough Community College in Brooklyn and graduated with a BA in public relations in 2008.
According to Jenna’s LinkedIn account, she is now working in the position of a medical receptionist for a public clinic located in New York. Before getting this job, she started her career as an office administrator.
Sal Vulcano, Jenna’s brother
Jenna’s older brother, Salvatore Edward Anthony “Sal” Vulcano Jr. was born on 6 November 1976, in New York City, USA. As of 2019, he is an experienced actor, comedian, producer, and author of the book written about the process of creation of his famous comic show “Impractical Jokers”, launched in 2011. His book got into the stores in 2014, and told the story of Sal and his friends James “Murr” Murray, Joe Gatto and Brian Quinn, which actually began early in Sal’s school years when he first met his mates.
They soon understood that they were on the same page in their sense of humor, pranks and other funny things they decided to create and do together. The success didn’t come overnight, and after graduating St. John’s University with a BA in finance, Sal had to start from scratch, working as a pizza guy for a short period of time, and then as a barman at “The Full Cup”. However, he didn’t forget his dreams and performed as a stand-up comedian at small venues along with such comedians as Big Jay Oakerson, Godfrey and Chris DiStefano, and touring around the US. He also appeared in a couple of movies: “Bones” (2005), “Criss-Cross” (a TV movie, 2005) and “Just Another Romantic Wrestling Comedy” (2006).
His experience continued to expand, and the project they all had been working on for a long period of time finally came to fruition. Their “Impractical Jokers” started as a YouTube series, but soon got to truTV, premiering on 15 December 2011. The TV series was a big success and lasted for eight seasons. James Murray also announced that another show based on the “Impractical Jokers” plot and cast will go to air in 2020, entitled “Impractically Speaking Live”.
Jenna’s appearance in “Impractical Jokers”
Jenna was always close to Sal when he was creating his “Impractical Jokers”, though she didn’t appear in any episodes of the show.
She knew his friends, but the idea of pranks didn’t come to their minds until the last episode of Season 3. As the main idea of the show is to find a special way to prank a person, Sal, James, Brian and Joe often created and even invented various kinds of spoofs for other people, but the real fun began when they started joking on each other. As they knew each other well, it was quite hard to hide the process of planning a prank, so when it was performed successfully, the fun rate was very high. Sal organized a big trick on James Murray in the last episode of Season 2, so James wanted to take a revenge, and asked Jenna to do him a favor, and they both planned a special prank for Sal.
James and Jenna married, as a prank – they organized a real wedding ceremony, signed all the papers to make the marriage ‘real’, and even filmed a love story movie such as usually couples show their guests at the ceremony. In the video Jenna and James act as though they’d dated for a long time, were much in love with each other, writing their names in a heart on the sand at the beach. So they covered Sal’s eyes and got him right to the chapel where all the invited guests were, including both sets of parents. When they opened Sal’s eyes, who could only witness how his sister walks down the aisle in a white wedding dress and a veil towards her husband-to-be, James Murray.
Sal tried to laugh to ruin the ceremony, but when he saw the papers were real, he could only watch in surprise as the ceremony went on. The funniest part was that only the priest called Jenna by name, because in his vow James called her “Sal’s sister”: ‘I take you for who you are, and who you are … is Sal’s sister’, he said, looking right in her eyes, while she answered: ‘I, Sal’s sister, take you, Murr, to be my husband…’ – and the guests burst out laughing. James continued: ‘What an amazing moment, in the same day I get a wife, and a brother’. Sal couldn’t believe his eyes and only whispered strong language, looking at James.
At the moment the priest asked if anyone there objected their marriage, Joe and Brian taped Sal’s mouth so he couldn’t say anything. Though the joke was pretty good, the ‘marriage’ was annulled in 24 hours. James wrote on his Twitter the next day after their marriage: ‘Oh, 2 more things. Yes, I legally married Sal’s sister, no joke. And yes we annulled the marriage…after the honeymoon night! Revenge rocks’.
Though Jenna ‘married’ James Murray in a prank, she hasn’t shared any information about her private life, never mentioned any details about her current or former boyfriend(s). According to available information, Jenna has never been married, and doesn’t have any kids, though she tried to play jokes with her followers on Twitter, posting photos of her nieces and saying it was her daughter who was 14 years old (which would mean she gave birth when she was 19).
However, her friends from Sal’s project revealed the truth in the comments, saying it was not her daughter in the photo.
Hobbies and interesting facts
Jenna likes basketball, football and hockey as she used to play them a lot since her childhood with her brother, Sal; he liked sports when in high school, and played with Jenna a lot, taking her to their games with his friends. Jenna likes to play tricks on her brother, and knowing he is afraid of cats and that he is a germaphobe (a person who is obsessed with cleanliness and gets scared of any types of bacteria) she mainly uses these weak leaks to make good the pranks.
Social media presence
Jenna is not very active on social media. She used to have a Twitter account, though she stopped posting in 2015, not even getting 1,000 readers. She also had an Instagram account, but eventually removed it. She doesn’t use Facebook, or at least set her privacy settings in such a way that a random user couldn’t find her page in the search.
Jenna has long black hair and brown eyes. She is 5ft 5ins (1.67 m) tall, and weighs around 132 lbs (60kgs) – her vital statistics are unavailable at the moment.

Net worth and salary
According to authoritative sources, Jenna’s net worth is quite modest, and is estimated to be around $100,000. As to her brother, Sal, his net worth is much bigger, as he holds prestigious positions of a co-creator and writer of a popular show, and also earns a lot of money by performing as a comedian. To be precise, his net worth is estimated to be around $4.5 million. As he keeps on working on new seasons of his TV series “Impractical Jokers” and is also writing a script for the “Impractical Jokers” movie, his net worth is going to grow in future. It is worth mentioning that Jenna is not going to appear in the movie, at least for now her name is not in the list of the cast.
