The Wealth of Jessica Rogan
How rich is Jessica Rogan? As of early-2019, sources estimate a net worth that is over $1 million, earned through success in her various endeavors. Her wealth has also possibly been increased thanks to her husband, who has a net worth estimated at over $25 million. As she continues her career, it is expected that her wealth will also continue to increase.
Early Life, Education, and Career Beginnings
Jessica was born into a big family – the daughter of comedian Robert Schimmel, she grew-up with five siblings in Arizona, and attended high school in her hometown of Scottsdale. She was interested in pursuing a career in show business thanks to her family’s inclination towards the industry, and after matriculating from high school, she enrolled at California State University, and then transferred to the University of Arizona, taking up a major in Psychology.
She considered her father to be her role model as he found success in stand-up comedy. Wanting to experience the same level of success as her father, she quickly forayed into the entertainment industry after graduation, however, with limited opportunities, she needed a job to make ends meet, and so also worked as a cocktail waitress, meantime trying to find jobs on television. Thanks to her father’s influence, she landed her first job as an assistant for the animated show “The Simpsons”.
Foray into Entertainment
Rogan was credited as a production assistant for 15 episodes of “The Simpsons”, which is the longest running American sitcom and scripted primetime television series in terms of episodes. Her next project was as a production assistant on the documentary entitled “Hollywood and Divine: Beauty Secrets Revealed”, and joined her father when he was featured in several episodes of “The Howard Stern Show”, which is a radio talk show hosted by Stern, exclusive of Sirius XM Radio, and during its peak had around 20 million listeners.
In 2010, wanting to move forward with her career, she tried modelling, and signed with the Chinese company EM Model Management. Although she quickly realized that modelling wasn’t the path for her, she continued the job anyway, leading her to join the Korean company Wholesome for modelling projects, and continued modelling until after her marriage. She also worked at Volvo Motorsports as a product analyst, and now with her husband in his television series, mainly in a background role overseeing the production of many of his shows.
Husband – Joe Rogan
Joe Rogan is a businessman, actor, television host, color commentator, podcast host, mixed martial artist, and stand-up comedian. He began his career as a stand-up comedian in the Boston area during the late 1980s, relocated to Los Angeles in the mid-1990s, and began working with Disney. He appeared in several television shows during this period, including “NewsRadio” and “HardBall”. In 1997, he began his work in professional mixed martial arts as a color commentator and interviewer for the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). He also released his first comedy special, then became a host, increasing his popularity through “Fear Factor”.
After his run with the show, he returned to being a stand-up comic, and also launched his own podcast called “The Joe Rogan Experience”, featuring various guests discussing a variety of topics, and which proved highly popular, even being picked up by SiriusXM Satellite Radio. He continues to work as an actor and in comedy, appearing in films such as “Zookeeper” and “Here Comes the Boom”. He also released a comedy special entitled “Live from the Tabernacle” which is available to download from his website. One of his latest projects is “Joe Rogan Questions Everything”, in which he explores topics such as UFOs and Bigfoot.
For her personal life, it is known that Jessica started dating Joe in 2007, and had their first born child the following year. They married in 2009, and had another child in 2010. She also has a daughter from a previous relationship whom Rogan adopted as his own after their marriage. The family lived in Boulder, Colorado for some time but later settling in Bell Canyon, California. She also revealed in an interview that her father married one of her friends when she was 21 years old, which was difficult and awkward as her stepmother is just four years older than her.
One of the reasons for the limited information when it comes to Jessica’s past and her present endeavors is due to the lack of any public online presence, including accounts on major social media websites, such as Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. The opposite can be said for her husband, who is highly active on websites such as Instagram and Twitter, posting a lot of promotions, photos at work and with his friends. Jessica rarely appears in his online accounts.
