Jason Aldean’s first wife was Jessica Ussery. It is surprising to know that Jason Aldean’s first wife was there at the beginning of the country music superstar’s career. Before Jason tied the knot with his current wife, Brittany Kerr on March 21, 2015, Jason Aldean was married to Jessica Ussery (Jessica Aldean) for eleven years before deciding to go their separate ways.
Facts about Jason Aldean’s First Wife Jessica Ussery (Williams)
Jason and Jessica had their first encounter during high school at Macon, Georgia’s Windsor Academy back when Jason was known as “Jason Aldine Williams.”
Surprisingly, she was blessed with kids while married to Jason, and she has two daughters for him, Keeley (born in 2003) and Kendyl (born in 2007).
While married to Jason Aldean, she went by “Jessica Williams” to reflect his actual surname versus adopting Jessica Aldean.
Before the couple filed a divorce, Ussery and Aldean were extremely close. “We’re best friends,” Aldean once told Nashville Music Scene in 2011. “I don’t even know if you can describe it. I mean, it just doesn’t work without her, you know what I mean?”
Jessica, while she was married to the country music superstar, catered and saw through all Jason’s finances and other business matters. Sometime in 2011, Jason confessed to The Boot that Jessica handles all the stuff he doesn’t want to handle. In his words, “I’m the guy who wants to play my music and meet my fans. But, she picks up the phone and makes the business call. When it comes to the music, she’ll give me her opinion if I ask her but that’s about it. It works out pretty good.”
