Early Life

Jenna Marie Massoli was born on April 9, 1974, in Las Vegas, Nevada, to Lawrence and Judith Massoli. Lawrence was a local sheriff, and Judith was a Las Vegas Strip showgirl. Jameson had only a few years with her mother before she died of skin cancer on February 20, 1976, just before Jameson turned two.

Due to the inability to pay all necessary medical bills, the family was forced to relocate to a trailer while her father worked long hours to pay off debts. Tony, Jameson’s older brother, and they were essentially left to parent each other.

Despite being a gifted ballerina and a frequent pageant winner, Jameson’s adolescence was a difficult and destructive time for the rising starlet. She was sexually assaulted several times and developed a serious drug problem. She left home at the age of 16 to live with her boyfriend.

The following year, she used pliers to remove her braces from her teeth and a fake ID to land her first job as an exotic dancer. Jameson began modeling for adult magazines after being discovered by a Penthouse scout. Around this time, she also changed her surname from “Massoli” to “Jameson,” a name she chose for its boozy and rebellious connotations.

Her erotic film career yielded numerous hit films, and her extraordinary success prompted adult video company Vivid Entertainment to sign her to a 15-picture deal in 2003. Jameson has appeared or starred in over 100 videos and compilations during her on-screen career. She also received nearly every award presented by the adult entertainment industry, including inductions into the X-Rated Critics Organization Hall of Fame in 2005 and the Adult Video News Hall of Fame in 2006.

Mainstream Productions

Jameson moved into more mainstream productions after the success of her first foray into traditional media. In 2001, she provided voice talent for the animated TV show Family Guy, as well as the video games Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 4, both released in 2002. She also appeared in rapper Eminem’s 2002 music video for “Without Me,” and she became a regular guest on Howard Stern’s popular radio show. Furthermore, the Jameson episode of E! True Hollywood Story in 2003 was one of the most popular in the show’s history.

“How to Make Love Like a Porn Star: A Cautionary Tale,” Jameson’s best-selling autobiography, was published in 2004. It was an instant success, spending six weeks on The New York Times Best-Seller list.

Jameson’s success piqued the interest of Playboy Enterprises, which bought ClubJenna in 2006. With more than $30 million in revenue, the company has risen to the ranks of the Fortune 500. Following the acquisition, Playboy launched the Club Jenna Channel, a pay-per-view channel starring the prominent starlet.
