She studied communication for two years at the University of Scranton, and moved to La Salle University to complete her studies, graduating with a degree in arts and communication. Throughout her university years, she was very active in sports such as hockey, softball, and volleyball.

The content of her broadcasting career has had a strong emphasis on sports-related coverage, but she is also very versatile, as has been seen through her time as a local news anchor.

Fox and Friends’ Jillian Mele’s personal life remains a mystery on the Internet as she keeps a very low profile. Even her social media networks have revealed her to be elusive about her private life. On a few occasions, she has let some information slip on Jillian Mele’s Twitter about her boyfriend from Boston. Some fans have been speculating that she is secretly married to this mysterious person, however, there have been no official records or certificates to confirm those rumors. Jillian Mele’s Instagram photos reveal that when she isn’t working, she plays with her dog, enjoys a good game of golf, has girls’ nights out, and enjoys walking and working on her tan at the beach. A lot of Jillian Mele’s pics involve her pet corgi, whom she dearly loves.
