In the TV series adaptation, Jennsen's mother's name was Taralyn, and she was Zedd's daughter. She was taken hostage by Denna to coerce Jennsen into finding and giving Denna one of the three Boxes of Orden that was protected by magic. This is when Jennsen realized that her mother knew all along about her daughter being pristinely ungifted, and never told her because she was hoping she would never have to know. Also, unlike the books portrayal, she is also the mother of Richard Cypher.
