Josh Donaldson as he is professionally known has been a sensation on the field of baseball and a hard nut to crack for his opponents.
Apart from baseball which he has adopted as his career, the third baseman for the Toronto Blue Jays is also talented in the game of golf. At 18, he was on a local television station where he showed off a golf swing that was picture perfect. Even till date, Josh is a known golf supporter, he actually found out about his move to the Toronto Blue Jays while watching the Golf Channel.
The American-born baseball player was born on the 8th day of December 1985 in Pensacola, Florida. The young Josh Donaldson was brought up by his mum Lisa French since his father Levon Donaldson was sentenced to prison in 1992 for false imprisonment, sexual battery, and aggravated battery. His father who got released in 2007 watched his son play for the first time on the 13th of September 2013.
The baseball player’s educational background can be traced back to Pace High School in Florida and later at Faith Academy in Mobile, Alabama where the budding baseball player was known for playing football, baseball, and basketball and eventually made a name as the Alabama Gatorade Player of the Year. He got his University education from Auburn University. During his years at the university, he was active in baseball, he played in the position of a third baseman and catcher for the Auburn Tigers baseball team in the Southeastern Conference.

With his flourishing career which keeps getting better as the years roll by, the stellar athlete must have accumulated a healthy net worth although it has not been made public. Nevertheless, his annual salary is pegged at $23 million by reliable sources and with the way his career is going, his salary may still improve in no distant time.
Does Josh Donaldson have a Wife or Girlfriend?
Josh Donaldson has been in a couple of relationships with the opposite sex in the past. At a point in 2016, the baseball player’s name was linked with that of Briana Miller but unfortunately, the relationship fizzled out and died a natural death.
From what we can sieve out from the social media, Josh’s latest partner appears to be Jillian Rose who is said to have come originally from Cincinnati. Apparently, she has been with the baseball star for some time. According to the grapevine, Jillian is a beautiful blonde who does not take to public display, she is not heavily into the social media platforms and is known to be the shy type but she manages to keep her man happy and fulfilled. Jillian was cohabiting with her beau in San Francisco when the baseball player was still with the Oakland Athletics and that level of commitment speaks volumes.
Presently, it appears that the couple is really enjoying the good things of life when you take their living condition in Frisco into consideration. The video of their apartment that was posted on the internet appears really cozy and considering the price of houses in the city, it would appear that the couple is on their way into the league of the crème de la crème of the rich and powerful which can only be afforded by movie stars, superstars musicians, super-rich athletes and the likes. Kids are not part of the relationship yet, but the happy couple proudly owns a tri-color, nine-pound, Cavalier King Charles Spaniel toy which goes by the name Lucy.
