Joe Rogan is famous for being a commentator for the UFC and hosting the podcast “The Joe Rogan Experience.” Despite his career being more on the sharing of opinions and personal endeavors verbally, Joe rarely talks about his family. Still, there is enough information for us to have a clear picture of the podcasting pioneer’s wife, Jessica Ditzel.
Who Is Jessica Ditzel?
Jessica Sloan Ditzel (Jessica Rogan) was born in Sugarland, Texas, on the 18th of July 1975. As of 2021, she is 45 years old. Her father, Jeff Conrad, is a musician.
She attended Doherty High School in Colorado Springs, CO, and graduated in 1993. She later enrolled at California State University, Long Beach, but no information about her major or degree is provided. In regards to her career, it is very separate from her husband’s.
After finishing college, Jessica went on to have a very diversified work portfolio. She worked as a cocktail waitress, a product analyst for Volvo Motorsports, an assistant for Rent-A-Car Enterprise, and an account executive at Robert Half Technology.
At age 35, Ditzel debuted in the modeling industry when she represented M Model Management. She has worked with the Korean brand known as Wholesome. She then pursued a career in television production after working in many fields throughout her life.
How Did She Meet Joe Rogan?
Despite living separate lives, the two managed to find their way into each other. In 2001, Rogan met Jessica while she was working as a cocktail waitress in Los Angeles.
Shortly after their first meeting, the two began dating. During this period, however, their relationship was kept a secret to the public. They dated for 8 whole years. Then, Joe proposed to Jessica in 2008, and they got married in 2009.
But before their love story started, Jessica was in a relationship with the late H-Town lead signer, Keven “Dino” Conner. Jessica’s first baby, Kayja Rose, was with Keven.
How Many Children Do They Have?
In one of Joe’s podcast episodes, he revealed that he and Jessica have three children. There’s the youngest Rosy (11), the second middle Lola (13), and the eldest Kayja (24). Joe’s biological children are Rosy and Lola, and after marrying Jessica, he adopted Kayja.
As Joe relocated his podcast studio in early 2020, the Rogan’s are now based in Austin, Texas. Prior to that, they were residents of the Bell Canyon, California area.
It’s not just Jessica; the entire family has done an outstanding job of keeping a low profile. Maybe that’s why, after over two decades, they are still going strong.
Jessica Ditzel and Jessica Schimmel are not the same person
Because of the family staying away from the limelight as much as they can, misunderstandings about them are common. Jessica being mixed for another personality is one example.
Contrary to what many are led to believe, Jessica Ditzel is not the daughter of late comic Robert Schimmel. Simpson’s producer Jessica Schimmel is sometimes confused for Ditzel. However, the two ladies are completely unrelated.
