About Jeanene: As a smart but waif thin schoolgirl attending Nassau's Kingsway Academy, the once shy Jeanene was often taunted with the nickname "Bean-Pole Jeanene" - a moniker she would ultimately wear proudly when those legs that spanned for days and striking appearance - catapulted her into international success.

Jeanene is a stunningly splendid mix of her native Bahamian father and Italian-Canadian mother (who was a former world champion medal-winning athlete and Olympic high jumper in the 1964 Tokyo Olympics).

A gifted athlete like her mother and brother (her eldest siblings Rick Fox a three-time World Champion Los Angeles Lakers NBA basketball player) - Jeanene excelled in many sports including softball, swimming and track and field - the family room's shelves quickly crowded with her awards and trophies. However, friends thought Jeanene far too feminine too pursue a career in sports - but as luck would have it, she wouldn't have to.
