JJ grew up in a very small town near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. A high school athlete, Jareau graduated from East Allegheny High School, where she was the captain of the varsity soccer team her senior year and earned an athletic scholarship to the University of Pittsburgh. She also attended Georgetown.
She decided to join the FBI after attending a book reading by BAU founder and Unit Chief Agent David Rossi. She once told Rossi that she had not known what to do with her life until she listened to his reading, which was held in the campus bookstore during her senior year in college. The next fall, she applied to the FBI Academy.
For years as a member of the BAU JJ acts as the team's liaison with the media and local police agencies. Though talented and helpful, she is not actually a profiler despite accompanying the team on raids and being quite proficient with firearms, she has even gone so far as to decline Hotchner's suggestion to take the necessary classes in behavioral analysis. She remains at this position for quite some time until eventually JJ is given a promotion to the Pentagon. However she quickly realises that this is not where she wants to be and when she returns she returns as a full-time profiler.
She is married with one kid, Henry, and when she's not dealing with the crazies at work she's usually knee deep in family and she wouldn't have it any other way.
Muse and mun are over 18, I do not own the character of JJ who is a character from 'Criminal Minds'. I also make no profit off this journal.
