Jade Pettyjohn parents Jessica Pettyjohn and Shiloh Pettyjohn hail from Los Angeles. Jessica is a sound artist, and Shiloh co-founded Web Studios West.
Young actress Jade is primarily known for her appearance as McKenna Brooks in the 2012 family drama film An American Girl: McKenna Shoots for the Stars. She is also notable for playing Sumer on the Nickelodeon series School of Rock.
Jade began her acting journey as an eight-year-old child actress portraying Julie Sands in one episode of The Mentalist in 2008. The following year she landed the role of Belle Ryker in S.H.M.I.L.U. and Anna in Stranger.
Before her television and film career, Jade performed in a local children's sing and dance group from the age of seven. Eventually, she was bit by an acting bug and fell for it profoundly. And now, she has already been in the industry for over a decade.
Jade got full support from her family while she was on the verge of pursuing acting as her career. Jessica and Shiloh always cherished their daughter's career decision and gave her all their love and adoration.
Jade Pettyjohn Parents
Jade Pettyjohn parents were Jessica and Shiloh Pettyjohn on November 8, 2000. The Pettyjohn family is based in Los Angeles, California.
Both Jessica and Shiloh have worked in the sound department in television and films. Additionally, Jessica has also worked as a second assistant director for the 2006 short comedy film Sell Out, directed and written by Alex D'Lerma and David Kitchens.
The pair have known each other for nearly three decades. On April 3, 2020, Jessica marked their 21st marriage anniversary by sharing the sweetest post on Instagram. She also shared they had their first date twenty-four years ago.
She revealed that they talked all night, which turned into all weekend. Only after a month they shifted into their first apartment together. Jessica said, "He was charming, funny, and a perfect listener. The amount of respect he gave me was beautiful."
Shiloh's previous relationship experiences suggested that charm would fade and the connection would become work. However, Shiloh surprised her, and "it never worked." The charm never faded, and the couple will celebrate their 23 years of marriage in 2023.
