Born in Waco, Texas in 1979, Jennifer was given her first name by her older brother Todd, who named his little sister after a girl he then had a crush on. After her parents got divorced she grew up with her mother in Harker Heights, also in Texas.
At an early age, Jennifer displayed a passion for singing and performing. At age five, she took jazz, tap, and ballet lessons which resulted in her joining the Texas Show Team, which toured through Europe and the (former) Soviet Union. Five years later, her family moved to Los Angeles, where Jennifer quickly found commercial work and a role on Disney's Kids Incorporated in 1984. Following this memorable event, she attempted a series of TV roles without much success.
Jennifer then made a leap into acting in movies, making her film debut in Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit co-starring Whoopi Goldberg. After appearing in two short-lived network shows and releasing two music albums, Jennifer finally got her break when she was cast in Party of Five in 1995.
While the FOX family drama launched her career on television, it was the horror flick I Know What You Did Last Summer which finally put her on the Hollywood map. Her popularity rose as she made several more movies, recorded more albums, was featured in men's and women's magazines, and appeared in music videos.
In 2005, she landed the role of Melinda Gordon in the CBS drama Ghost Whisperer. In 2007, Jennifer got engaged to her long-time boyfriend Ross McCall while vacationing in Hawaii.… Expand
