Jake Tapper’s Family – Wife & Children
Meeting your soul mate on a campaign site may sound very uncomfortable, but for Jake Tapper, it was a moment when he didn’t want to give up or change. It is said that he met Jennifer when he was organizing the coverage of the 2004 presidential campaign for ABC. They got along well and started dating, but it wasn’t until two years later that they took the relationship to the next level.
Jake and Jennifer Marie Brown were married in Missouri in 2006, and the couple currently lives in Washington, D.C., and has two children; a daughter named Alice and a son named Jack. The family practices Judaism as a religion.
Jennifer Marie was born in Kansas City, Missouri, on May 11, 1977, the daughter of Thomas, the owner, and operator of a $1 general store, and Linda Marie Brown, who worked in Kansas City as customer service manager for Southwest Airlines; both are of white descent.
She graduated from the University of Missouri-Kansas City since she has obviously spent her whole life in Missouri. Since she is not that tall, Jennifer Marie is about 4 feet and 4 inches tall and worked as a starter at Southwest Airlines’ customer service center at Kansas City Airport. She continued her work at Planned Parenthood in Washington D.C. as Regional Field Manager. She also once worked as a writer for a newspaper company. Currently, however, she is working for an advocacy consultant and is also involved in teaching those who are in harmony with the American Corps.
Jennifer has also tilted her career toward being an author, and her first book, “The Hate List” reached the height of popularity and fame after its publication. She went even further and wrote a novel for young people under the pseudonym Jennifer Scott. She wrote other books, including “Bitter End”, “The Perfect Escape”, “Thousand Words” and so many others. She did not limit herself to writing novels for adults, but also wrote children’s books, including “Life on Mars”, “How Lunchbox Jones saved me from robots, traitors and Missy the Cruel”.
Ironically, Jennifer has played her life in secret, she is not alive on any social media platform, and there are no records of illegal acts in her name. Jake Tapper is proud of his wife and has mentioned that she is the strength that keeps him alive in his success story.
