Chris Jericho is extremely well-known in the wrestling industry. He has been making an impact from the day he debuted in WWE while The Rock was in the middle of his segment.
Currently, he is with AEW and is working relentlessly to push the company forward and help it reach maximum glory.
However, while Jericho enjoys the spotlight and is often under it, his wife, Jessica Lockhart, is not seen as much.
Who is Chris Jericho’s wife, Jessica Lockhart?
Chris Jericho met Jessica Lockhart through WCW Wrestler, Glenn Gilbertti.
Jericho was performing for WCW at Tampa Bay, Florida. During a dinner night out at a Japanese restaurant, Jericho noticed Gilbertti speaking to a beautiful lady. Jericho claimed that he felt a wave of emotions when their eyes locked.
When he realized that she was just his friend, he asked Gilbertti to introduce them.
He wrote about their first meet and their journey extensively in his book – A Lion’s Tale.
The first day they met, Chris Jericho and Jessica Lockhart spoke for hours. In fact, he left a message on her answering machine that very night after bidding her goodbye that night.
Even though Chris Jericho and Jessica Lockhart both stayed in Tampa Bay, Florida, Jessica’s father is from Minnesota. Lockhart left the very next day after she met Jericho for her father’s house.
Jericho and Jessica used this time apart to get to know each other better before moving anything forward. They built the foundation, and when she returned a few weeks later, she was already his girlfriend.
The duo got married on July 30, 2000 at the St. Charles Country Club. They have three children together. Their oldest is their son, Ash Edward Irvine, who was born in 2003. The couple were blessed with twin daughters, SiSi and Chey, in 2006.
Jericho’s wife prefers to raise the children away from the spotlight. This is why there are rarely any appearances from them. In fact, Lockhart likes to stay away from the spotlight herself.
Due to this, not a lot is publicly known about Jessica Lockhart.
Chris Jericho and Jessica Lockhart celebrated the 20th year with a twist
Chris Jericho and Jessica Lockhart renewed their vows for their twentieth year together on New Year’s Eve 2020.
Former WCW Announcer, David Penzer, took to social media to upload a few glimpses of the event and congratulated the couple on their twenty years of togetherness.
