Jessica Pegula’s third-place result in the Australian Open in 2022 earned her a great deal of notoriety.
The 28-year-old tennis pro not only claimed the number two position at Wimbledon 2021, but also the number three position at the US Open in the same year. The sportsman had a similarly spectacular year in 2020, as he won the Australian Open and the French Open.
It is thus not unexpected that she is a player to watch in the 2023 Australian Open, with fans keeping a close check on her serves and strokes.
While the world is captivated by her performance on the court, it is just as interested in her life off the court. Pegula married her longtime lover, Taylor Gahagen, near the end of 2021.
Who is Jessica Pegula’s husband?
Taylor Gagahen is an American senior financial analyst who worked at Pegula Sports and Entertainment (a firm owned by Jessica’s parents) for seven years.
Following this, he served as director of corporate development, director of brand strategy, and subsequently as a marketer for the Pegulas’ National Hockey League professional hockey club, the Buffalo Sabres.
Galhagen obtained his MBA from Canisius College and his BSc in business administration from the State University of New York at Fredonia.
The 28-year-old is also well-known for his involvement with animals, having co-founded the animal welfare organization A Lending Paw, which assists in the rehabilitation and placement of rescued canines.
