Jessica Ditzel is a former model, as well as an account executive and a product analyst. However, she is probably best known as the spouse of American stand-up comedian, MMA color commentator and podcast host Joe Rogan.
Early Life and Education
Jessica Sloan Ditzel was born under the zodiac sign of Cancer on the 18th July 1975, in Sugar Land, Texas, and is of American nationality and white ethnicity. She spent the majority of her childhood in her home town, where she was raised in a middle-class family alongside her older sister named Trinity.
When she was 13 the family moved to Houston, Texas, then to Colorado Springs, Colorado, where Jessica matriculated from Doherty High School. She then enrolled into California State University, Long Beach, from which she graduated with her bachelor’s degree.
Upon graduation from CSULB, Ditzel began her career working as a cocktail waitress. She later switched to modeling, and signed with the M Models and Talent Management Agency.
With the beginning of the 2010s, Jessica began her tenure as a management assistant of a local rent-a-car agency, then after honing her skills in the course of the next couple of years, she was appointed as a product analyst for the Volvo car racing team, currently known as Cyan Racing (previously referred to as Volvo Motorsport). The latest known professional highlight of Jessica Ditzel is as an account executive for the Technology Staffing and Solutions firm named Robert Half Technology International.
In the early 1990s, Jessica married American musician Keven ‘Dino’ Conner, the frontman of the R&B and hip hop trio named H-Town. The couple welcomed a daughter named Kayja Rose who was born on the 23rd August 1996, and has made a name for herself in the music industry as a soul singer and songwriter. After finding out that Dino was cheating on her back in 1998, Ditzel filed for divorce.
Marriage to Joe Rogan
Jessica and Joe first met in a cocktail bar in 2007, and apparently fell in love straight away. After dating for less than a year, the couple became engaged which was followed by the birth of their first child in May 2008 – a daughter named Lola. In the following year they tied the knot, exchanging their vows in a low-key wedding ceremony. In 2010 Ditzel and Rogan welcomed their second child, a daughter they named Rose. Joseph James ‘Joe‘ Rogan was born under the zodiac sign of Leo on the 11th August 1967, in Newark, New Jersey, and is not only of American nationality and white ethnicity, but of Italian and Irish ancestry as well.
As his parents divorced when he was five, Joe spent his childhood switching between San Francisco, California, Gainesville, Florida and Newton Upper Falls, Massachusetts, eventually matriculating from Newton South High School in 1985. Interested in martial arts since his early teens, he first began practicing karate before switching to taekwondo. After winning the US Open Championship in the taekwondo lightweight category at the age of 19, he switched to kickboxing. Later Rogan enrolled at the University of Massachusetts, Boston, but dropped out without graduating, and relocated to New York City.
Rogan began his career in stand-up comedy in August 1988, circulating Boston’s comedy bars scene. After honing his skills, in 1994 he moved to Los Angeles, California, where he spent the next 13 years regularly performing at Hollywood’s Comedy Store club. Between 1995 and 1999, he starred in the NBC’s sitcom “News Radio”, meantime also becoming involved in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) serving as its post-fight interviewer.
