Jason Witten Ties Knot with High School Sweetheart, Welcomes Four Children

Former Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten enjoyed one of the most successful careers from his position in NFL history.

The 39-year-old tight end who last played with the Las Vegas Raiders was a mainstay on the gridiron since entering the league in the 2003 NFL Draft as a third-round pick by the Cowboys, and American football fans witnessed him grow throughout his career, dating all the way back to his college football playing days

The 11-time Pro Bowl tight end briefly retired from football for a stint in the broadcast booth on ESPN’s “Monday Night Football” but returned to the Cowboys in 2019.

Despite a busy home life with his wife Michelle and their children, the urge to return to football proved too much for Witten to resist.

Jason and Michelle Witten were high school sweethearts at Elizabethton High School in Tennessee and both attended the University of Tennessee where she went to nursing school and worked at the school medical center. It’s unknown when the pair officially got married, though Witten posted to Instagram wishing Michelle a happy anniversary in July 2018.

When it’s all said and done, you can expect to see Mr. Witten enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton. Witten didn’t miss a single game with the Cowboys from 2004-2018, when he first retired, and his longevity in the sport has enabled him to set some impressive records, including most receptions by a Cowboy in franchise history. He finished with 74 touchdowns and more than 13,000 receiving yards, second-most by a tight end in NFL history.

The former NFL player signed a one-day contract to finish his career in Dallas in 2021, and he now serves as the head coach at Liberty Christian School, the high school his children attend. The next wave of Wittens could be on their way to the gridiron. I’m sure Michelle will be ready cheer them on no matter what.
