Early Life and Education

Nick Schmit was born on the 30th December 1980 in the USA and is of American nationality and white ethnicity. There aren’t any relevant details regarding his parents, siblings as well as his family’s background that have been publicly disclosed to the present day.

Upon completing his primary and secondary education, Nick enrolled at the University of North Dakota.


Upon completing his studies in 2002, Schmit began his professional career as the Clinton Foundation’s Director of Finance, where he honed his skills during the course of the next two years. His next stop was the state of New York, where he began serving as the supervisor of its annual budget. In 2006, he joined Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, called “Hillary for America”, for which he was appointed as the compliance director. In 2007 he returned to the Clinton Foundation, while in 2009 he ‘suffered’ a real career breakthrough – Nick Schmit was appointed as the US Department of State’s assistant chief of protocol. Between 2009 and 2013 he served under the tenure of Hillary Clinton, while from 2013 to 2017, Nick served as the US State Department Official during the term of US Secretary of State John Kerry.

Marriage to Jonathan Capehart

The couple first met in 2011, when they were introduced by the husband of Human Right Campaign’s president Jed Hastings. As at that point Capehart was already in a relationship, their next meeting occurred half a year later, when their love story began. After a couple of years of steadily building their relationship, the couple decided to bring it to the next level, and in May 2016 Jonathan proposed to Nick during their vacation on the Amalfi Coast in Positano, Italy. Their wedding ceremony was held on the 7th January 2017, in the Jefferson Hotel in Washington, D.C.

Jonathan T. Capehart was born on the 2nd July 1967, in Newark, New Jersey, USA, and is of American nationality and African-American ethnicity. Upon matriculating from Saint Benedict’s Preparatory School, he received his post-secondary education at Carleton College in Northfield, Minnesota. He began his professional career at the NBC as a researcher for its television broadcast “The Today Show”. Between 1993 and 2000, Capehart served as an editorial board member of the New York Daily News, while from 2001 to 2002 he worked for the Bloomberg News. Between 2002 and 2004, Jonathan was a deputy editor for the New York Daily News, while from 2004 he served as the Senior Vice President as well as the senior counselor of Public Affairs for the international public relations firm Hill & Knowlton. Since 2007, Capehart has served as an editorial board member and journalist for The Washington Post as well as a contributor of the MSNBC.

Nick Schmit and Jonathan Capehart

Some of his most recent engagements include guest hosting the WNYC’s radio show program “Midday on WNYC”. For his professional skills and endeavors, Jonathan was honored with the prestigious Pulitzer Prize for Best Editorial Writing in 1999, while in 2011 he earned the Esteem Honoree for providing support for LGBT and African-American communities within the field of civil rights, business, entertainment, media and art.

Despite the 13-year-age gap, the couple is apparently going strong and running smooth, so it can be concluded that they are happily married.

Net Worth

Have you ever wondered how much wealth this 38-year-old Public Affair Strategist has accumulated so far? How rich Nick Schmit is? Well the amount of his net worth, speaking as of mid-2018, has been estimated that it’s close to $2 million, and his current salary is reputed to be around the sum of over  $65,000. Taking into consideration that his husband’s net worth is estimated at $3 million, it is certain that Nick and Jonathan live pretty lavishly.

1I just never want to be in this situation where I get to set and they're like, 'We rewrote this scene, you're now naked.' I need a little prep work.
2George Wendt is a saint. And one of the finest American actors that we have.
3Yeah, a lot of people ask me to take my shirt off, which is aggressive. I wish that I were just one of those guys who was just like, 'You know, look, when I was seven I had a six-pack, and it just never went away.'
4Another show I really enjoyed working on was Raising the Bar (2008). I did four or five episodes of that show.
5So when you go to a set and you just fully trust everybody, you know how hard everybody's working, you know that the people doing it are good and have such a strong vision - that's exactly my experience on New Girl (2011), and what my experience on Veronica Mars (2004) was like. Everybody was just so great.
6When I'm in the car sometimes it's like, 'Yeah, man, just put on the pop music.' You know what I mean? I don't want to listen to 'Tom Waits'.
7I love Twitter. My favorite thing to do these days is to tweet things that seem very questionable as to whether I'm joking or not.
8If you knew my wife, you'd be like, 'Yeah, you're very married.' She runs the household. I refer to her as 'the greatest director I've ever worked with.'
9I think L.A. gets a bad rap. L.A. is the same as everywhere else.
10I'm just not one of these guys who, like, you know, woke up with a six-pack. I need Skittles. I have to eat very particularly and I have to work out like a madman. And then it looks like... okay.
11Pilots are so hard because you have to introduce all these characters, you have to hook an audience, and an audience has such a smaller attention span than maybe they used to have.
12It is crazy. It's our first kid, and all of a sudden, she identifies letters as what they are, and you go, 'This kid is a genius - she's obviously some sort of savant!'
13In my latter years I've decided that there's too much to keep track of when you go into the lying game. That becomes stressful and it's not for me anymore.
14I remember having a feeling like, 'I can't believe this is happening!' Two years ago I was auditioning for The Disney Channel, and now 'Paul Rudd' is saying, 'Hey man, congratulations on your Emmy nomination!'
15During a panic attack, I remember that today is just today and that is all that it is. I take a deep breath in and I realize that in this moment I am fine and everything is okay. More importantly, I am reminded that my A.P.C. jeans are so perfectly worn in that they are appropriate for any season and I am suddenly at ease.
16I'm Jewish and my wife isn't so right now we're literally decorating a Christmas tree with Jewish stars draped around it.
17I love Jonathan Adler but more importantly I love throws. To clarify, a throw is not to be confused with a blanket. A blanket is to be slept under, a throw is to accent a chair or sofa and give the illusion that in some scenario someone might rest underneath it. In reality, this scenario does not exist and I never want it to.
18There's nothing worse than walking around and talking about your failed relationship, all day, every day, for months on end.
19Here's what's nice about life: Sometimes you have ideas and for the most part, they're not good ones. And then you'll follow through with a handful of them and sometimes you'll be pretty disappointed. And then other times you'll follow through and you'll go, 'You know what? It's nice to be right.'
20For a girl, the wedding is when you're married. For a guy, it's when you get engaged. It takes a real aggressive human being to back out between the ring and the wedding.
21I think the most important foundation about any relationship is just being honest. You've got to. My wife and I are honest to a fault with each other, and we're best friends on top of it, so we're very fortunate.
22I literally have over a thousand emails in my inbox that need to be returned. I'm sure all of my friends and certain family members are like, 'Oh, look who got nominated for an Emmy and doesn't want to write me an email back!' I need a good few hours to just sit and get on the phone.
23I always feel like people in general are much weirder and insane than anybody really wants to admit. How dare somebody watch anything and go, 'That's not real!' Go on the subway. For five minutes.
