Jenna Marbles is an American YouTube personality best known for her satirical how-to videos.
She was born on September 15, 1986, in Rochester, New York, USA, as Jenna Nicole Mourey.
In 2004, she graduated from Brighton High School.
After high school, Jenna earned a Bachelor of Science in psychology at Suffolk University. Later, she earned her Master of Education in sport psychology and counseling at Boston University.

On February 16, 2010, Jenna created her self-entitled YouTube channel. Mourey posted her first video on the platform, titled “Charles Franklin Marbles Is a Sad, Sad Man.”
In 2015, she became a vegan.
In July 2015, Jenna was honored with a Madame Tussauds statue at a museum in New York.
”As we celebrate 15 years in Times Square, it’s very exciting to bring two firsts to our guests – a wax figure of an online sensation AND the very first selfie-taking wax figure in the US,” said Bret Pidgeon, General Manager of Madame Tussauds New York.
”Working with Madame Tussauds has been great – I can’t believe I’m getting my own figure,” Jenna stated. To create the wax figure, about 250 detailed measurements were taken.
In 2016, Jenna served as the executive producer for Maximum Ride, a science fiction film based on the novel by James Patterson.
In May 2018, Mourey bought a house in Sherman Oaks for $2.85 million.
On June 26, 2020, Jenna announced that she’s leaving YouTube, claiming that she wanted to “make sure the things I put into the world are not hurting anyone.”
”I don’t know how long it’s going to be,” Mourey also explained at the time. She continued: ”I just want to make sure the things I’m putting in the world aren’t hurting anyone … so I need to be done with this channel, for now, or for forever.”
”Jenna made a difficult decision this week, but it was the right one for her,” her long-time partner Julien Solomita posted a statement on TwitLonger. ”She has always been someone who I’ve watched deal with real-life problems head-on, and I admire that about her.”
