The Net Worth of Amber Jaeger

Her husband has also helped with her net worth, thanks to his similar work in the entertainment industry. As she continues her career, it is expected that her wealth will also continue to increase.
Early Life, Education, and Career Beginnings
Very little information is available about Amber’s childhood, her family, and how she decided to pursue a career in the acting industry. It is known that after matriculating from high school, she continued her studies by enrolling at Otterbein College.
Shortly after completing her education, she made her acting debut alongside David Garegnani in the film “The Three Stages of Stan” in 2003, produced by Ethan Black and which is based on the short stories of writers Bob Vickery and Dale Chase who are known to have originated from San Francisco. She Eventually took more projects, including the 2007 short film entitled “Hearts and Hotel Rooms” in which she played a hotel manager, directed by Justin Nicholas James and which follows two gay men who cannot decide if they want to be together or not. However, the film did not receive good reviews for either its story or for the performance of the actors.
In 2010, Jaeger starred in the film “Solitary”, which focuses on a psychiatrist and an agoraphobic patient trying to deal with the disappearance of her husband. Other films she has worked on include “My Life with Morrissey”, an independent film that won the Audience Award at the Black Point Film Festival, and tells the story of a career girl who goes completely off the rails as she meets her idol, a British rock star named Morrissey.
The following year, she starred in the romantic comedy film entitled “Take Me Home”, alongside her husband Sam, who also wrote and directed it, and including Victor Garber and Lin Shaye. The film aired at the Nashville Film Festival. According to reports, writing the film took around two years while filming happened in 13 states, with Ohio as the initial backdrop. The film received good reviews from local reviewers, stating that it was a good film that had great comedic moments. It also won numerous awards in other film festivals where it was shown.
Husband – Sam Jaeger
Samuel Heath Jaeger began his professional career in a New York casting office, though he had already tried his hand at working on television while in college, having a guest role in the long-running television series “Law & Order”. While in New York, he performed in several theatrical productions before deciding to move to Hollywood to try and break into full-length feature films. His career started to take off when he was cast in the film “Traffic”, directed by Steven Soderbergh, and which explores the drug trade through numerous perspectives.
Shortly afterwards, he landed a role in “Behind Enemy Lines”, starring Owen Wilson in the story of a naval flight officer who uncovers genocide during the Bosnian War after being shot down, and is loosely based on the 1995 Mrkonjic Grad incident that actually happened during the war. Other projects he has had include “Hart’s War”, and a role in the series “Parenthood”. One of his latest projects is “The Handmaid’s Tale”, based on the novel by Margaret Atwood, and set in a near future New England where a totalitarian government has taken control of the United States.
According to several sources, Amber met Sam while both of them were attending Otterbein College, and they began their relationship there. They married in 2007 in Logan, Ohio at the Crockett’s Run Resort where they had an outdoor double ring ceremony. The couple have three children together, and Amber also has a child from a previous marriage, of which no details have been forthcoming. The family resides in Los Angeles, California.
One of the reasons there is very little information about Amber is due to the lack of any social media accounts. She does not have a strong online presence which is unusual for actors in today’s industry. The same can be said for her husband, who also doesn’t have social media accounts but they have managed to find success without much promotion or public interaction. Some sources state that this is likely so that they can maintain their privacy, and especially that of their children. The couple have appeared together at public events, and Sam has been around the country promoting his work through other means.
