Jenna Marie Adams originally hails from San Francisco, California, where she was born to Lori and Jeff Adams. Her family has had a long connection with sports for generations — as her grandfather Glen Almquist played football at UCLA while her uncle Scott Almquist played golf for San Diego. 

Jenna had nurtured her passion for volleyball from a young age, being a captain for her school's volleyball team. She was a four-year letter winner and under her captaincy, her team Saint Francis High School was named First Team All-West Catholic Athletic League (WCAL). Alongside volleyball, she also showed brilliant performance as a sprinter for the school track team. In 2016, Jenna was chosen as the Senior Class Outstanding Athlete.

After graduating summa cum laude from school, she played for Vision Volleyball Club and helped her team qualify for the USAV Nationals more than once. She earned a bachelor's degree in business administration before attending the University of South California's Marshall School of Business for a Master's degree in Finance. At USC, she played as a senior libero and defensive specialist for the women's volleyball team 'Women of Troy'. 

Jenna Adams and Michael Norman met each other while both of them were studying at USC. They started dating in November 2018 and celebrated their two-year anniversary in 2020. Both of them regularly share cozy couple photos on social media with the sweetest captions. Jenna has time and again referred to Norman as her "best friend" in the whole world. On Valentine's Day this year, she posted a photo of the two of them celebrating with roses and heart balloons, with the caption "Happy Valentine’s Day to my favorite person in the world ❤️❤️❤️ love you so much!!!" Ahead of the Olympics, she posted another photo with Norman captioned, "Sooooooo happy for you 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 You inspire me to be better every day❤️❤️❤️❤️".
