Congratulations are in order for Jazz Jennings, the eponymous star of TLC's hit show I Am Jazz, who just recently learned she got into college. It's been a crazy year for the trans teen, who also got gender confirmation surgery and a new boyfriend all within a matter of months.
As spring break approaches, high school seniors around the country are learning about what fate has in store for them next year. And it seems that Jazz is soon going to join the rest of the Jennings family legacy come fall when she moves out of the house to start her undergraduate degree.
So, where is Jazz going to college?
Although Jazz is pretty vague about her day-to-day life on social media, where she mainly keeps fans up to date of her upcoming or recent TV episodes, her family is luckily not as tight-lipped. Recently, her brother Griffen shared a photo of the siblings donned up in University of Florida apparel with the caption "So proud of my sister for getting accepted into the University of Florida 🧡💙 #gogators #4for4."
After being homeschooled for high school, it sounds like the 18-year-old will be joining her peers when she moves to Gainesville this summer. Jazz's sister Ari recently graduated from UF, her twin brothers are currently there, and it appears that her father and grandfather also attended the university, so Jazz is just the last Jennings to carry the family torch.
Where does Jazz Jennings live?
Currently, Jazz and her family (who use Jennings as a pseudonym to protect their real identity) live in South Florida, in the Fort Lauderdale area. "I want to move so bad," Jazz said in a teaser clip ahead of tonight's episode, where she declares to her mom Jeanette that "now is the time."
"To me it doesn't feel like that," Jeanette quickly retorts. "To me, it feels like a disaster." Although Jazz just returned from a trip to New York, where she got to spend time with her long-distance boyfriend Ahmir, it's doubtful she'll get the chance to move before she has to join UF's Class of '24.
Who are Jazz's brothers?
The Jennings seem to be a very tight-knit family and Jazz's twin brothers Griffen and Sander have been their sister's biggest fans since Day 1. They're frequently on the show, pictured traveling together, and even catch her best behind-the-scenes moments, which producers often miss, on their personal camcorders.
The 21-year-olds are very vocal about their support for Jazz and are often pictured repping their University of Florida pride with Gator sweatshirts, frat paraphernalia, and even their Instagram pages, where Sander states he's studying Pre-Law at the college.
Are Jazz and Ahmir still together?
Although like we mentioned before, Jazz is very hush-hush about her private life on Instagram, using the platform predominantly to promote her TLC show, Ahmir, 19, seems to have less on the line. It's unclear whether the couple is still dating, but Ahmir did post a photo of Jazz on Valentine's Day, captioned "blah blah — I forgot the original caption💕💕." So we're thinking the two may have worked out their differences and managed to stay together.
According to Ahmir, the official word is "I can't say [if we're still together]. Watch and see." But we're not sure they're going to be able to maintain their relationship past the summer. Though the couple is currently long-distance between Fort Lauderdale and Philadelphia, Ahmir recently announced he'd be going back to school in the fall, to join the undergraduate class at the University of Southern California.
We wish the best to these love birds in their relationship and in their educations. Major props for getting into such prestigious institutions!
Tune into tonight's episode of TLC's I Am Jazz at 9 p.m. to see how her relationship with Ahmir progresses.
