JD Harmeyer’s wife is Jennifer Tanko, a makeup artist, social media influencer, and former classroom teacher. It is not clear whether they are still married or not.
JD Harmeyer, who works as a TV personality on The Howard Stern Show, started dating his wife in 2014. They dated for three years before becoming officially engaged. Following their engagement, the romantic duo scheduled their wedding for the next year, and in 2018, they eloped to Las Vegas, where they went on to exchange the forever commitment. If the rumors making the rounds about JD and Jennifer’s separation turn out to be false, then the couple’s union would have endured five years.
Who is JD Harmeyer’s Wife?
The name of JD Harmeyer’s wife is Jennifer Tanko. Jennifer was born on the 6th of January 1999 in Virginia. However, she has lived in Washington, D.C., and Baltimore as an adult. An American by nationality, JD Harmeyer’s wife is White. She is the daughter of Linda Tanko, who earns a living as a staff of the Virginia Tech Pamplin College of Business.
Jennifer attended Towson University, where she earned a Bachelor’s degree in sociology. The quest for further studies took the blossoming make-up artist to the University of Maryland Baltimore County to obtain a Master’s degree in social studies.
To further hone her makeup skills, Jennifer went for training at MAC Cosmetics for four years from 2009 to 2013 and came off with a MAC basic certification. Following this, she did freelancing jobs in Baltimore for a while before going to establish her makeup business.
Jennifer’s certification is in various aspects of make-up, like airbrush tanning, threading, facials, and more. She takes on make-up jobs for weddings, proms, gore, special effects, fantasy transformations, and a whole lot more.
She is a friendly vendor with the LGBTQ community and takes on jobs with drag queens and king’s transformations. Because of her connection to the gay community, JD Harmeyer’s wife is now a strong advocate for marriage equality.
After she moved to New York City following her wedding with JD, Jennifer only waited long enough for her honeymoon to be over before she went back to her makeup job.
Jennifer’s job as a makeup artist led her to become an influencer on social media. She has established a presence across different platforms where she shared makeup pictures and videos for tutorials. She has since become a celebrity on Instagram, sharing stuff about food, travel, and makeup.
She First Worked in the Education Field as a Teacher
After she finished her studies at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, Jennifer used her Master’s in teaching and social studies to join the Maryland Science Center where she completed her internship, following which she worked as a classroom teacher in a Baltimore-based elementary school. At a point in her teaching career, she worked with the children’s science company, Club Scientific as a camp counselor.
Jennifer Became JD Harmeyer’s Wife in 2018
JD Harmeyer and his wife, Jennifer Tanko, started dating in 2014, though the exact time they first crossed paths has never been mentioned. The radio personality and media producer went on to date his love interest for three years before they decided to take things a notch higher.
The couple’s official engagement was witnessed in February 2017 when JD popped the big question, and needless to say, the on-air-personality received an affirmative answer.
The duo started planning their nuptials immediately and added some drama by eloping to Las Vegas to exchange wedding vows. Their wedding ceremony occurred on the 25th of August 2018, and it was an intimate affair with just 10 guests in attendance. They didn’t even bother to invite JD Harmeyer’s co-workers on The Howard Stern Show, but they wished the couple well.
Since they got married, Jennifer has been a pillar of support to her husband, always by his side for events and occasions. They often share glimpses of their marital bliss with fans via social media. In September 2019, the couple made a trip to California, which was speculated to be like a second honeymoon for them.
While in California, Jennifer shared several pictures and videos where she was seen enjoying the sun, sunbathing at the beach, and skiing, but her spouse, JD Harmeyer, seemed to be in a different mood. Though the on-screen personality was seen in the pictures, he just sat idling away with his clothes full on.
When quizzed about his reasons for not joining Jennifer in the fun, JD said he doesn’t have a great body and never wanted to show it off. However, that did not mean he didn’t enjoy their time together.
JD and Jennifer obviously share a strong bond, and they appeared to be really happy in their relationship until rumors of the breakup started making the rounds.
Is JD Harmeyer Still Married to Jennifer Tanko?
It is difficult to say whether JD Harmeyer and his spouse, Jennifer Tanko, are still married because rumors about the couple’s separation recently hit the airwaves.
Surprisingly, the ensuing rumors about the couple’s divorce even went ahead to claim that the couple may be filing divorce papers very soon. However, this has not happened. While the grapevine was buzzing with the news, many fans of the on-screen personality took the story with a grain of salt, waiting for confirmation from the couple, which never came to date.
Since then, details about the purported split and moves to file for separation have been scarce as JD Harmeyer has never been the type that talks about his personal life in the public arena. Thus, with no concrete evidence to conclude that the couple has separated, there is still the possibility that they may still be married.
Apart from this, several sources have been debunking the duo’s separation rumors, but nothing has been heard from the couple themselves.
Do They Share Any Kids?
Since they tied the nuptials in 2018, there has been no mention of any children for JD and his wife Jennifer. However, considering the fact that the on-air personality is averse to sharing his personal life in the public space, many have concluded that they may be keeping it shrouded, but this remains to be seen.
