Jennifer Montana was Born in Pennsylvania 64 Years Ago

Jennifer Montana was born on the 7th of July, 1958 as Jennifer Sharon Wallace. The 64 years old lady was born in New Eagle, Pennsylvania, USA. However, there are no available details about the type of family she was born into – who her parents or siblings are (if she has any). Also, there is no telling what growing up was like for her as she has kept her early life away from the media.

She Met Joe Montanna At A Schick Razor Commercial Shoot

In the 1980s, Jennifer Montana (then Jennifer Wallace) was contacted for a Schick razor commercial and Joe was contacted for the same commercial. Aside from being excited that she will be working with someone taller than her (a not so common experience for her because of her tall height), Jennifer had a strictly professional mindset when she started working with Joe.

At the time of their meeting, Joe was already an established footballer, playing in the National Football League as a quarterback. However, the model knew nothing of this information, not until they started working together.

With time, they grew fonder of each other’s company and the football star asked Jennifer out on a dinner date. When he got the check, Joe wrote on it, asking Jennifer what her reaction would be if he asked her to spend the rest of her life with him. This was just six months into their relationship and Jennifer was not sure she wanted to get married at that time. She neither gave him a “Yes” nor a “No”. Since he did not get a no, Joe believed he still had a chance, and of course, he did. The player gave Jennifer Montana some time and shot again. Still on a dinner date, but he had a plane to carry the message this time. The actress said “Yes” and the rest is history.

Jennifer Became Joe Montana’s Third Wife In 1985

In 1985, the couple got married and have stayed married since then. For Jennifer, this was her first marriage and she did not have any legal partner before Joe. On the other hand, it was Joe’s third marriage. Before his marriage to the actress, the player had been married to two women in the past. His first marriage was to Kim Moses in 1974. He was only 18 years old at the time and the marriage ended three years later in 1977. In 1981, he got married to Cass Castillo. His second marriage also lasted for three years. He and Castillo went their separate ways in 1984.

A year later, he got married to Jennifer, his third and current wife. The couple has been together for about 38 years now.

Joe and Jennifer had their first son, Nathaniel Montana, three years after they had Elizabeth. Nathaniel took after his father by becoming a football player and beyond the fame the family name gave him, the young man tried relentlessly to build up a legacy for himself but perhaps wasn’t good enough.

Jennifer Montana’s 6 feet 4 inches tall son and former quarterback started off his football career in high school with De La Salle High School in Concord, California. In college, he played for the University of Notre Dame’s Fighting Irish football team but later withdrew in 2009 to try Mt. SAC’s football program before returning to Notre Dame in January 2010. He later joined the University of Montana in February 2011 before finishing off at West Virginia Wesleyan, an NCAA Division II program.

Sadly, he went undrafted in the 2013 NFL draft and since then, not much has been reported about his football career and personal life though it is widely known he has a history of substance usage from his days in college.
