Jenna Vulcano is an American actress who had never really sought a life of fame. She is best known for being the younger sister of “Impractical Jokers” star Salvatore Vulcano, and had appeared in three episodes of the show. Nonetheless, her controversial appearances have won her the admiration of many fans, especially after her short-lived marriage with James Murray. The marriage was a punishment after Salvator was unable to complete a prank, but the union was annulled twenty-four hours later.
If you want to know more about the elusive sibling of Sal Vulcano, then feel free to read on as we discuss everything we could find on the 33-year-old comedian.
Early life and family
Since Jenna is not an extremely popular starlet, information on her is limited. However, it is known that Jenna was born on 4 August 1986 in Staten Island, New York City USA.
Her father, Salvator Vulcano Sr, and her mother, Dianne Fernandez-Vulcano, divorced while Jenna was still young. Nonetheless, Jenna has had a close relationship with her father, and continues to praise and adore him for the role he played in her life.
The divorce had also had a subsequent effect on the children’s relationships, driving them closer together and forming a strong bond between the three.
Jenna is the youngest of the three siblings – her brother, Salvator Edward Vulcano, is the oldest and a fellow leading star and Tenderloins member of the popular show “Impractical Jokers”. Not much is known about her younger sister, Danna Vulcano, who has remained mostly away from media attention, but is married and has children, though few details of her life have been made public.

As most of Jenna’s life is shrouded in mystery, it is not known where Jenna finished high school, nor if she attended any tertiary educational institutions.
By profession, Jenna is not much of an actress, and her only on-screen appearances have been in her brother’s show. She made her first appearance in 2012 in an episode of “Impractical Jokers” entitled “Strip-High-Five”. The episode involved two Tenderloin members having to walk down one of New York city’s busiest squares and high-five strangers, as punishment for being unable to complete a prank.
Every refusal from pedestrians would lead to them being punished by having to remove a piece of clothing. It was an act that could have led to someone being arrested for indecent exposure. In this episode, Jenna appeared along with Joseph Gatto’s sister Carla – ‘Joe’ is also a member of the Tenderloins.
Jenna’s second appearance, though not exactly on camera during filming, was in a photographic slideshow depicting her in several awkward situations, part of a prank that members of the Tenderloins had to pitch to a vacation resort. In some of the pictures, Jenna could be seen kissing Brian Quin, the fourth member of the Tenderloins who is known by the nickname Q.
Jenna also appeared with a naked Q, and in a scene where she appeared in bed with Q and James.
Her third appearance was as the controversial bride of James Murray, who is known on the show simply as Murr. The event took place with Sal’s whole family as witnesses, and was a legal affair. It came as punishment when Sal lost the episode, fittingly entitled “Brother-In-Loss”. Needless to say, Sal was not very impressed by what happened. The marriage was annulled twenty-four hours later, but not before the end of the honeymoon, as James later tweeted to further infuriate his co-star Salvator.
Jenna later tweeted that the divorce was as payback against James, who once made Sal go sky-diving, and get a permanent tattoo of a ferret sky-diving.
It is known that Jenna’s actual profession in life is as a receptionist and co-ordinator – she currently works as a receptionist in a medical facility in Staten Island. Jenna also at times helps out the “Impractical Jokers” show as a producer in support of her brother.
Hobbies, favourite things and interesting facts
Little about Jenna’s preferences and interests has been disclosed to the media, but on her Facebook profile, it is mentioned that she likes to party.
She also claims that her brother, Sal, is her life, and it’s obvious that she deeply cares for him.
The only relationship Jenna had that gained wide-spread attention was the one day with James. However, according to her Facebook profile, she has since married legitimately and has a baby girl. Neither her daughter nor her husband’s names have been disclosed, and remain a tightly kept secret.
