Janet Jacme was born on October 22, 1967 in Chicago, Illinois. Jacme moved to Los Angeles, California at age seventeen and worked as a hairdresser prior to starting out in the adult entertainment industry as a stripper. Janet first met her frequent co-star Julian St. Jox at a nightclub and began performing in explicit hardcore fare in the early 1990's. Jacme founded her own production company called Janet Jacme Enterprises in 2005. Moreover, Janet was inducted into the AVN Hall of Fame in 2006; she has the distinction of being the third black woman to be inducted into said Hall of Fame after Jeannie Pepper and her friend Heather Hunter. Her porn pseudonym is not only a tribute to Janet Jackson, but also a play on the sexually suggestive expression "jack me." In addition, Jacme rates as one of the few black performers to eke out a successful career in the MILF porn genre.
