A few times, she had come to Twitter to talk about how Fox News had warped her family’s mind and made them oppose good things like Universal Healthcare and other things. In another of her Twitter post, Jess mentioned that her parents still do not believe in her expertise in volcanoes and environment and climate change.
There were also times when she came to social media talking fondly about her family. For example, she posted a photo on Instagram talking about how her father made her New York Giants fans. Although later in life she became a Washington fan.

Apart from being a volcanologist, Jess has done so many other things in her life. She was an instructor during her college days. And she had worked in corporate offices and worked as an editor, photographer, podcast host, and many more.
Jess also ran for the Congress from Canyon County, California. Although she lost the election, she was quite happy that her campaign had made people aware that scientists can run for elections.

She also had several TV appearances, starting with the 2016 series Trailblazers.

Are Jess Phoenix And Stel Pavlou Together?
When Hunting Atlantis premiered on TV, people tuned in hordes not only because the lost city of Atlantis and the prospect of rediscovering it was very interesting, but also because there was a great rapport between the hosts of the show, Jess Phoenix and Stel Pavlou.
And obviously, many curious questions came up. People asked if Jess and Stel were together. Well, the answer to that question is no, they were only colleagues. In fact, Jess is married to her husband Carlos Palaez. And Stel is also married since 2007 to his wife Michelle Pavlou. They even had a child together.

The name of Jess Phoenix’s husband is Carlos Palaez. He is the guy who often appeared in Jess’s social media platform, in her Tweets, and her Insta stories.

Together with his wife and a few other people, he also serves as a secretary of the Board of Directors of Blueprint Earth.

The secret to such a long and happy marriage is Carlos’s unfaltering support to Jess, whatever she does, and a lot of vacation. That comes with being married to an explorer.
