With a background in European modeling, HR, Real Estate Investment and Celebrity Event Planning, Janet was off to great start to hitting the entertainment industry with a slam-dunk. However it was not those things that lead her to the business. Janet found her way into the entertainment industry just by being a “party goer”. She was always the “Boss Chix” in VIP, “poppin’ bottles.” Eventually Janet realized that the partying she was doing could be put to great use, since she was such a great people person and networker, so she started investing with her own money to book celebrities for her special events and parties to for a profit, build a business and still have a good time. It was K& J Productions at that time that had the city going crazy. She brought LL Cool J, Snoop Dogg, Beyonce’, 50 Cent and so many more. She even brought the hottest Super Bowl party hosted by Beyoncé, LL Cool J, and the singer Janet Jackson to Houston and other special events in so many more markets. Also during that time Janet was known for nightlife entertainment at the world famous club 112. Janet took that company, K&J Productions and merged it to what we now call Jackson Events & Entertainment or JEE.
While bringing the large celebrity parties to the clubs, concert venues and more. At that time, Janet was also General Manger of Echelon3000 and Director of Promotions and Marketing for Taboo 2 & The Pearl, all at the same time.

While her life may appear glamorous, Janet faces darkness from the loss of all her immediate family to cancer or heart disease. The loss of her mother was very dark and Janet wishes do more charity work in honor of her mother, Iris. Janet faced another big storm in her life when she suffered traumatic injuries from being in a major car accident, which caused Janet to break both ankles and have to learn to walk all over again. While the job may sound fun and easy, Janet makes it clear that this has not been a smooth ride. She states “Being a female just alone, will limit people’s faith in you, but you have to stay focused in this cut throat industry to prove them wrong.” Janet has been blessed to make it in the entertainment industry this long and with her upcoming new projects I’m sure we can expect to see her 20 more years!
As long as there is life, there is a potential; and as long as there is a potential, there will be a success! You will sprout again when cut down! You will rise again even when you fall!”
