Jennifer married Nassar, an Olympic equestrian, in October 2021 after nearly four years of dating. The wedding took place at their farm in Westchester County, New York.

Jennifer, also an accomplished equestrian and owner of Evergate Stables, previously said the couple’s love of the sport was part of what brought them together.

“Horses are just a part of our lives, but we love the sport,” she told CNN’s EQ equestrian show in 2019. “He’s a professional and I’m doing this as an amateur. So to be able to share our love and passion for horses with each other is just incredible.”

The couple announced their engagement via a January 2020 Instagram post, in which Jennifer called Nassar “one of a kind” while raving about the romantic proposal.
