America has officially fallen in love with Jazz Jennings! The reality star is the center of the TLC show I Am Jazz — and now fans want to know more about her family! For starters who are her parents? And what's her father's occupation? Well, we have all the answers about the teenagers home life. Keep scrolling to learn more about Jazz's family!
Who is Greg Jennings?
Greg is none other than Jazz's dad! Not only has he (and her mom!) been totally supportive of their daughter through her transition, he also seems to be quite close to her. Jazz has posted multiple photos of her dad on Instagram including a special shout out for him on his birthday.
She captioned the pic, "You’re a super cool dude and i love you soooo much? i know that i’m a handful, but you always seem to know what to say and do to navigate me through my challenges. you da best?? ."
What is his occupation?
Greg along with his wife, Jeanette, are the co-founders of TransKids Purple Rainbow Foundation and are currently working to be equal-rights activists within their community. Her parents have spoken out about their thoughts on their daughter's transition.
"Jeanette and I are in 100 percent agreement as to how we should raise Jazz," Greg told ABC News. "We don’t encourage, we support. And we just keep listening to what she tells us." Her mom added, "I always say that I'm in the front line. Jazz is protected, because she's not getting the slack, because I am putting out the fires before they burn her. I want to pave the way for a better life for her, and any trans kids. They didn't ask to be born this way."
We love that Jazz has such a loving family — and we can't wait to continue following their story on the show. I Am Jazz airs Tuesdays at 10:05 p.m. on TLC.
