Jena Engstrom retired from acting in 1964, not long after appearing on Wagon Train, and in an episode of Perry Mason in which she plays Vera Janel in “The Case of the Illicit Illusion”. Jena’s final television appearance was on The Virginian in an episode broadcast in September 1964, “The Black Stallion”.

Jena left acting in 1964, possibly because of health considerations. In 1963, Jena was cast in what was to have been a recurring role of Jennie in the series titled The Travels of Jaimie McPheeters, starring Kurt Russell, but had to give up the role due to ill health, and was replaced by Donna Anderson.

In June 1964, Jena was replaced again because of illness, by Davey Davison in the episode “Children of Calamity” of Richard Crenna’s CBS drama series titled, Slattery’s People.
