Jalen lived in Parsippany/Lake Hiawatha for a major part of her life. She attended Eastlake Elementary before moving to Rockaway Meadow and then attended Central Middle School.

She graduated from North Cobb High School in 2018 as a dual enrollment student achieving 27 college credits. In the fall of 2018, she attended Georgia Southern University as a Sports Management Major. She felt that Music was her ultimate calling and decided to move back to New Jersey in April 2019. With hopes of furthering her career as a Hip-Hop artist, she spent hours writing music and burning the midnight oil at the studio with her manager, Uncle Marty, networking, and putting in 200% to achieve her dreams. Jalen also known as Jay Monet was passionate about her art and was creating a buzz in many areas in a short amount of time. She had showcases lined up in many locations. The first being on the night she was tragically taken from everyone. Although she was taken too soon, her legacy will always live on through her music and the love of God she bestowed on anyone she encountered near or far. Now our Queen is amongst the highest form of royalty just as she was destined.
