Sander Jennings Boasts About Family Always Being There For Him After Siblings Shame Jazz Over Weight Gain
Sander Jennings is showing some appreciation for his famous family.
After revealing he was going through some personal struggles, the I Am Jazz star is expressing his gratitude for his family for always having each other's backs.
He posted the heartfelt message on his Instagram Story on Thursday, January 14, which featured a wholesome shot of the whole Jennings gang, including parents, Greg and Jeanette, older sister Ari, 26, twin brother Griffen, 23, and younger sister Jazz, 21.
"Through the ups and downs, my family is always there for each other," he captioned the sweet post. "So thankful."
Sander's Instagram post comes just days after he shared with his followers that he was feeling "anxious" and "irritated" as a result of not dedicating enough time to himself.
As OK! previously reported, Sander has been very involved in helping his sister Jazz lose weight after she expressed she wanted to make some healthier changes to her lifestyle. Jazz has been open about her battle with a binge-eating disorder, which has caused her to gain roughly 100 pounds.
However, the dynamic sibling duo has been butting heads in recent episodes after Jazz revealed her family has been "fat shaming" her over her weight gain. "It makes me feel really humiliated," she previously confessed.

The rest of her family has also been getting frustrated with Jazz and her weight loss progress, with her brother Griffen previously stating she hasn't been taking "daily consistent action" toward her weight loss goals.
Sander also accused the transgender star of "lying" to herself in a recent episode after he insisted she was "making excuses" not to exercise more and eat healthier.
Jazz explained to the cameras that the pressure from her family was beginning to have a negative impact on her mental health and that she instead wants to find a more "natural" way to lose weight and stay healthy.
Jazz's mental health has been a lifelong journey for the LGBTQ+ rights activist, who also suffers from anxiety and depression, in addition to her eating disorder.
Jazz's mental health took a turn for the worst when she was supposed to be entering college, causing her to delay her schooling at Harvard University. Now, Jazz is trying to get re-admitted into the college, which she learned during the latest episode is going to be harder than she thought.
As OK! reported, Jazz is required to find a whole new team of therapists and psychiatrists in just a matter of weeks before she heads to Boston. She and her family appeared to be blindsided by the new requirement, considering all of her doctors are based in her home state of Florida.
Consequently, the episode ended with Jazz expressing her concern that the college will "deny" her as a result of the new restrictions.
