American Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) expert commentator turned podcast host Joe Rogan has a lot of skills under his belt. He is known for being a great host, comedian, and actor as well.

Joe Rogan, being one of the highest-paid podcasters, is known for being opinionated and open on many things such as politics, health, and other social issues. He has also been linked with controversial conspiracy theorists. And while he basically talks about anything that his mind touches, one thing that he keeps private, though, is his over-a-decade relationship and personal life with his wife and daughters.
Jessica Ditzel’s Education and Previous Relationships
Jessica Ditzel was born on July 18, 1975. Although not much is known about her childhood, reports say that she graduated high school in 1993 and later pursued her college degree in the California State University-Long Beach, but information about her degree and major is not confirmed.
She dated Keven “Dino” Conner, an R&B singer for Texas-based group, H-Town. In 1996, she gave birth to Kayja Rose and raised her as a single mother. Connor, Kayja Rose’s father, unfortunately died in 2003 due to a car accident.
Waitress, Model, Mother, and Wife
Rogan and Ditzel met in 2001. During that time, Ditzel was said to be working as a cocktail waitress. Reports say that the two hit it off shortly after that. Information on their courtship wasn’t publicized but the couple welcomed their first child, Rosy, in 2008. A little over a year later, Rogan and Ditzel tied the knot in 2009. In 2010, the couple welcomed their second child, Lola. Rogan also adopted Ditzel’s daughter from her previous relationship. Kayja Rose took her stepfather’s last name.
In the same year, 2010, Ditzel signed a modeling contract under M Model Management at the age of 35. She also found herself working for Wholesome, a Korean company. Additionally, she also worked as an account executive for Robert Half Technology. She also worked with luxury car company, Volvo, as a product analyst.
Joe Rogan’s Stance on Marriage and his relationship with Jessica Ditzel
Joe Rogan has been married to Jessica Ditzel for more than 10 years, but he has always been outspoken as regards marriage and how he is against the concept of it. He claims that he is happy with the marriage that he has with Ditzel but still discourages other people from marrying.
It is also obvious that the couple is trying their best to keep their relationship last longer than most Hollywood couples. Their private family life may just be the key to keeping a long lasting marriage.
