Jennifer started out as a rebellious teenager. She was sent to live with
her grand parents Tom and Alice Horton.
Jen met her true love Jack when they worked together at the Spectator.
They went through a lot to be together.
A mistake Jennifer makes over and over again is to trust people too soon.
One of the worst things that happened to Jen was when she was raped by
Jack and Jen finally got married but happily ever after was not their
storybook ending. Jack left Jennifer and though it truly hurt her, it also
made her a little bit stronger. They divorced.
Jennifer met Peter Blake and soon they fell in love. Trusting Peter was
the biggest mistake of her life. Later she found out what a schemer Peter
was and that he was responsible for her mother losing her mind, again.
Things looked up again for Jack and Jen but then she found out that her
mom and Jack had slept together. She felt angry at being betrayed by the two
people whom she loved the most. Jen, as usual, forgave Jack and they decide
to move to Africa.
Bo found Jennifer and Abby in Ireland and she went back to Salem with Bo.
Jennifer was ashamed to tell her family what had really happened in Africa.
Jen then fell for Colin and when Jack came back to claim his position within
the family, Jen refused him. It is understandable that Jennifer would react
this way since Jack won't let go of his childish games. At this point, one
can see that Jen really resents Jack. One can also understand why she is
pushing him away.
Jenniferís whole world came crashing in when JT fell out of her car when
the car went off the bridge; she could not forgive herself for what
happened. However, everything worked out in the end when the child was found
Although Jennifer said that it was over between her and Jack, she was
very jealous when Jack spent a lot of time with Greta. Jennifer moved on to
Brandon but this relationship did not last long.
Finally Jen and Colin met face to face but this did not work out well.
Jack and Jennifer finally remarried, but once again tragedy hit when Jack
was "killed" by the Salem Serial Killer. Jennifer truly loved Jack with all
her heart. We saw how hard it was for her standing at Jack's death bed, and
then we saw her torn apart when she almost lost the baby. To her, the baby
is a reminder of Jack and if she were to lose the baby, it would be like
losing Jack forever.
