In 1962, the same year she tried committing, the Ford modeling agency discovered her while she was still a student at Dalton School in Manhattan. At the age of 15, she had made cover appearances for Seventeen, Vogue, and Cosmopolitan magazines. This earned her a whopping $80,000 a day. At Dalton school, she never finished her studies as she dropped out at the age of 17 to get married to her first husband, Dean Rossiter.
Jennifer is on the record as one of the persons to have been married most of the time. Currently, she is married Mervin Sidney Louque Jr., who she has been married to since 1996.
