Who is Jessica Aldean?
Jessica Ann Ussery was born in Georgia, USA on 18 October 1979 – her zodiac sign is Libra, and she holds American nationality. She’s known to the general public for being the first wife of the famous country musician, Jason Aldean.
Early life and education
Jessica grew up in Macon, Georgia, alongside her three siblings as devout Christians, and received primary education at private Christian schools. Jessica hasn’t spoken publicly about her parents, preferring to keep them out of the public eye, thus nothing is known about them.
Jessica studied at Windsor Academy high school, and during her time there met her future husband, Jason; they started dating, and went to homecoming and prom together.
After matriculating high school in 1997, Jessica didn’t enroll at a college, and instead started working various jobs right away.
Marriage with Jason Aldean
Jessica and Jason had a long history together, being the model ‘high school sweethearts’. Their relationship continued even after Jason gained fame for his music, and in 2001 the couple celebrated their love by tying the knot in a private ceremony in Nashville, Tennessee.
Jessica gave birth to their first child, daughter Keeley in February 2003, and four years later in August 2007, they welcomed their second daughter Kendyl.
During their marriage, Jessica was working for Jason as his assistant, handling his finances and business matters. ‘She handles all the stuff I don’t want to handle. I’m the guy who wants to play my music and meet my fans. She picks up the phone and makes the business call. When it comes to the music, she’ll give me her opinion if I ask her but that’s about it. It works out pretty good.’, he revealed in an interview he gave for the magazine “The Boot”.
However, not everything was ideal in Jessica and Jason’s marriage – in 2012, rumors about Jason’s infidelity started appearing online and in tabloids. Namely, Jason was spotted cozying up with the former “American Idol” contestant and Charlotte Bobcats cheerleader, Brittany Kerr.
The scandal caused a huge drift in Jessica’s marriage with Jason, and in April 2013, he filed for divorce, citing irreconcilable differences. The divorce was finalized in 2014, and Jason then announced his engagement with Brittany. Following their separation, Jessica and Jason stayed on amicable terms, and spilt custody of their two children.
Where is she now?
Jessica has since basically disappeared from the public eye, which left a lot of people wondering what she’s doing nowadays. As it turns out, in Florida on 17 October 2015, she remarried to non-celebrity Jake Marlin, who helped her raise Keeley and Kandyl, while the kids also see their father on a regular basis. Not a lot is publicly known about Jessica’s husband, except that he works as an electricity lineman.
Jessica continued working as a business consultant for local companies, and is apparently considering opening her own business.
Appearance, age and net worth
Jessica is 42 years old. She has long brown hair and green eyes, is 5ft 6ins (1.68m) tall, and weighs around 120lbs (55kgs).
As of February 2022, her net worth has been estimated at more than $2 million.
