The Net Worth of Emily Jendrisak
How rich is Emily Jendrisak? As of early-2019, sources inform us of a net worth that is over $1 million, earned through success in her various endeavors. Her wealth has possibly been elevated thanks to the success of her husband who has an estimated net worth that is at $10 million. As she continues her endeavors, it is expected that her wealth will also continue to increase.
Early Life and Education
Emily’s father worked in construction, while her mother served as an advocate for Native American rights – Emily is of Native American descent from her mother’s side, specifically traced back to the Ho-Chunk tribe also known as the Hoocaagra. Most members of this tribe live in areas including Minnesota, Illinois, Iowa and Wisconsin. It is one of the known tribes that has been clashing with the US government for the restoration of their land.
The tribe’s land was taken away from them in 2017, and Emily’s mother has been helping the tribe for over three decades, serving as the Director of the Ho-Chunk Tribe of Wisconsin’s Research Committee. She also taught her daughter how to speak the Siouxan language. Her mother encouraged her to think for herself and doesn’t necessarily adhere to gender norms. Emily showed a lot of talent when it came to writing, and began winning awards while she was a student. After matriculating from high school, she enrolled at San Francisco University, studying Communications and Journalism.
Jendrisak completed her degree with honors, and then moved to New York City to pursue a career is a publicist. She was not able to gain her ideal position right away, and took on various jobs to gain enough experience to work as a publicist. Her work allowed her to manage and generate publicity for celebrities, brands, companies, or works such as books and films. She handled publications, television, print and online coverage of various brands. She initially worked with a firm and also did consultation work.
Emily found success, and her wealth as well as her popularity started to increase. However, she eventually decided to leave work and retire from being a publicist, made as she wanted to stay at home and start raising a family while supporting her husband. She also felt that her passion was still with her Native American roots, and wanted to do work similar to that of her mother. The decision came as a shock to most of her associates but it was eventually accepted.
Husband – Gavin McInnes
Gavin founded “Vice” in 1994, and during his time there, he was attributed for helping popularize the sub-culture of hipsterdom, with many labelling him as the godfather of hipsters. He contributed articles to his magazine, and also co-authored two Vice books. During his time with the company, he started making controversial moves, and later left the company in 2008 due to what he referred to as creative differences. He later created the advertising agency called Rooster, which he serves as the creative director. He then forayed into acting, appearing in “How to Be A Man”, and “Creative Control”.
Eventually, he took an indefinite leave of absence from Rooster to write an article on transphobia, which called for a boycott towards his company. He started leaning towards far-right political policies, and started to work with Canadian company The Rebel Media. He also began appearing in various news shows such as “The Sean Hannity Show”, “The Greg Gutfield Show”, and “The Alex Jones Show”, and started writing in the same capacity for “Truth Revolt”, and “The Federalist”. He left Rebel Media in 2017, and focused on his group called Proud Boys, which has been labeled as an extremist group with ties to white nationalists. He has also been denied entry by several countries, due to his bad character.
Marriage and Controversies
According to several sources, Emily met Gavin in 2000 while they were at New York’s Max Fish Bar. They started dating and married five years later, at the Sunset View Farms in Bovina, New York with the ceremony officiated by Edgar Burns Crutchfield III. The couple have three children together and reside in New York.
Emily has been involved in the same controversies as her husband, defending the stance of her husband multiple times. In 2018 the Proud Boys instigated a fight, and as a response the community where their family lives in started a No Hate Here campaign, displaying lawn signs in their community against McInnes, which continued throughout the year. He wrote a letter defending himself, but many residents dismissed his plea, one stated that he had done his research, knowing that Gavin has spouted words that incited violence and racism. Even Emily has been accused of intimidating and harassing her neighbors, including threatening legal action. Her clashes with the neighbors have often led to the police becoming involved. She has told the media that they are victims of misinformation.
