Jane Margaret Triche Milazzo (born March 2, 1957) is a United States District Judge of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana.
A native of Napoleonville, Louisiana, Milazzo earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1977 from Nicholls State University. She then earned a Juris Doctor in 1992 from Louisiana State University's Paul M. Hebert Law Center.
Milazzo began her career as an elementary school teacher. She then began working in 1986 as a paralegal for a Napoleonville, Louisiana law firm. In 1989, she shifted to being a law clerk while attending law school. From 1992 until 1998, she served as an associate at her family's law firm, and from 1998 until 2008, she was a partner in that firm. In 2008, Milazzo was elected a state district judge in Louisiana.
On March 16, 2011, President Obama nominated Milazzo to fill a seat on the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana that had been vacated by Judge Mary Ann Vial Lemmon, who took senior status in January 2011. On October 11, 2011, the United States Senate voted to confirm Milazzo in a 98-0 vote. She received her judicial commission the following day. Milazzo was appointed to the bench under the name Jane Margaret Triche-Milazzo, but has since changed her name to Jane Margaret Triche Milazzo.
Milazzo is married to John W. Milazzo, Jr. and is the daughter of former Louisiana politician Risley C. Triche and Clara Triche of Napoleonville, Louisiana. They have four children.
