Jelena recently graduated from DePaul University in Chicago, where she majored in Political Science. She is also an avid volunteer worker for programs such as Big Brothers Big Sisters, Students for International Peace and Development and Free the Children. Obviously she is a huge advocate for fighting child abuse.
Jelena began modeling at age 14, competing in numerous beauty pageants. In 2008, she competed in the pageant to decide who is crowned Miss Illinois USA. Although she did not win, she placed in the top 16 out of 100 participants.
Jelena has done fashion shows for brands such as Lord & Taylor, Macy’s and Playboy. She has also modeled for the pages of Maxim Magazine, where she is most notable as one of the top ten contestants in their “Hometown Hotties 2011” competition.
Being a Chicago girl, there is one question that must be answered right away: is she a Cubs or White Sox baseball fan. The answer to that question is the Chicago White Sox. She is also (and obviously) a Chicago Bulls basketball fan as well.
If you are a fan of tattoos, Jelena has one on her wrist and another on the back of her neck. She considers herself a down to Earth girl next door who is sexy, confident, and smart. She’s also a girl that any guy would be lucky to settle down with. When asked the one place she’d want to be in the entire world, she responded “In a small cottage somewhere in the middle of nowhere with the person that I love... I’m a helpless romantic...” (BroBible).
