Jennifer "Jenny" Martin is a Port Charles High School graduate and a Port Charles University student studying psychology. Jenny was a senior in Season 1 and best friends with Leah Corinthos and Emma Drake. She lived with her uncle Jake and aunt Amanda because she had some problems with her father and step mother. Jenny had some problems in season 1 which resulted in her sleeping with best friends Leah's boyfriend resulting in her pregnancy, when she found out she left town but later returned. When she had her baby, Ian was in prison so she decided to give her a better life and gave her daughter up for adoption in Pine Valley before returning to town. Jenny was devestated upon learning about Leah's death and she and Emma grew closer and she later formed a friendship with Leah's younger sister, Briana Corinthos. Although having a troubled past, Jenny is seen to be compassionate and very caring but can be a bitch when she wants to be, mostly when someone threatens her family or friends. When Trevor died, Jenny broke off her friendship with Briana but later repaired it after Briana helped testify in court so Ian couldn't fight to get custody of their daughter after he was released from prison. Jenny is the daughter of Tad Martin and Krystal Carey, sister of Amaya Martin and Nathan Martin, cousin of Trevor Martin
