Early life and education
Stevanna was raised in California as an only child, by her father and her mother Eliza Shaffy, a non-celebrity American woman who focused on being a housewife and raising Stevanna, rather than on pursuing a career; Stevanna has two paternal half-siblings, Genevieve Jackson and Steven Randall Jackson Jr., whose mother is Alejandra Oaziaza.
She grew up being interested in two things: dancing and acting. Stevanna became interested in acting at the age of six, after having begun watching movies and TV series with her parents on a daily basis. She was nine when she started taking dancing lesson, and was a member of her elementary school’s drama club, appearing in numerous plays during her six years there, as well as during the two years she attended middle school.
She was physically highly active while attending a local high school in Los Angeles, as she played soccer and volleyball, and also enjoyed running track.
Upon matriculating in 2008, Stevanna enrolled at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts, from which she graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in 2012.
Career as an actress
Stevanna launched her career in 2003, when she portrayed Simone in the episodes “Pilot” and “Class Clown” of the comedy series “The Tracy Morgan Show”, created by David Israel and Jim O’Doherty, and which starred Tracy Morgan, Tamala Jones and Marc John Jefferies. It follows the lives of a car-repair shop owner, his wife and their two children; the series was nominated for two awards.
In 2005, Stevanna played Tasha in the episodes “Welcome to PCA” and “New Roomies” of the popular family comedy series “Zoey 101”, created by Dan Schneider, and which starred Jamie Lynn Spears, Paul Butcher and Christopher Massey.

Love life and relationships

A fan has even claimed to have seen Stevanna kissing her girlfriend at a party, but no evidence has been provided to support these claims, nor has Stevanna commented on these rumors.

Who is her father Randy?
Steven Randall ‘Randy’ Jackson was born in Gary, Indiana USA, on 29 October 1961 – his zodiac sign is Scorpio, and he holds American nationality. He’s probably known best for being a former member of the pop band The Jackson 5, which was founded by his siblings when he was only two years old.
Randy was raised in Gary alongside his 10 siblings, including Janet Jackson and Michael Jackson, by their father Joseph Jackson who was a talent manager, and their mother Katherine Esther Jackson who was a housewife. While The Jackson 5 toured around the US, Randy stayed at home and learned to play the piano and the bongos, while also honing his singing skills. He was 10 years old when he performed on stage with his brothers for the first time, and then in 1972 started going on tours with them, mostly playing the congas; he only joined the band officially in 1975. They were renamed to The Jacksons around the same time, and Randy went on to co-write one of their most popular songs “Shake Your Body (Down to the Ground)”, when he was only 16 years old.
On 4 February 1980, Randy was involved in a serious car crash which nearly cost him his life, and it took a couple of months for him to be able to walk again. He continued performing with The Jacksons until 30 May 1989, when they released their 16th album “2300 Jackson Street”, and then disbanded. Randy then founded his own band Randy & the Gypsys, but they disbanded after having released only a single album. He launched his own record label Modern Records on 28 June 1998.
Randy divorced Stevanna’s mother Eliza in 1992, after only three years of marriage. In January 1991, he was found guilty of beating his wife and Stevanna, who was only seven months old at that time; Randy was put on two years’ probation and had to attend a domestic violence program, but eventually didn’t. He was arrested once again in November 1991, after his wife called the police as he was beating her again, and Randy then spent a month in a mental institution, while Eliza filed for divorce.
