Gregory Mecher: Who is Jen Psaki’s Husband?
Jen Psaki (@PressSec) has been happily married to her husband Gregory Mecher since 2010. Gregory Mecher is also a Democrat political aide just like the woman he married.
Gregory was born in September 1976 in southern Cincinnati, Ohio. He went to Elder High School, an all-boys Catholic prep school in Cincinnati. He graduated from Northern Kentucky University in 1999 with a degree in communications and television production.
He got started in his political career very young when he was just a student. He served as the student representative to the Board of Regents while he was in university. Shortly after, he managed to secure an internship with Kentucky Congressman Ken Lucas.
While pursuing a career in Washington DC, Gregory Mecher worked as chief of staff for former Congressman Steve Driehaus of Ohio. He served in the same position for former Representative Joe Kennedy III of Massachusetts as well.
Jen’s husband was working with the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) in 2006 and so was she when they first came across each other. Jen was responsible for handling the media at an event in Philadelphia where then-chairman Rahm Emanuel was traveling.
The entourage he came with got lost and Gregory, who was a deputy finance director at the DCCC and part of that entourage, asked for directions from Jen on the phone. Jen, who had no sense of direction gave him the wrong one which led them further afield.
When they finally got to the right place, he forgot everything about it as soon as he saw her. His immediate thought was that Jen was cute. Jen was just relieved that he was not upset by her misdirection.
When they were back at the Washington DC quarters, Gregory Mecher, who was already attracted to Jen Psaki, would make a point of regularly trying to walk by her desk, which was 20 feet from his own. But he found that getting her attention was not that easy as she was very focused when she was working.
Only after they had shared a cab ride one night and then did some flirting, did Gregory finally decide to ask her out. He got very nervous about it which was a new feeling to him as he had asked girls out before and never had he been nervous then.
So, he didn’t do it in person, rather he sent an e-mail to Jen asking her to dinner. Jen wrote back saying yes. And thus began their love story.
They hit it off at once and they became very serious. They moved in together after the 2008 election and after dating for about four years, the couple tied the knot in 2010.
Jen Psaki and her husband Gregory Mecher are parents to two children.
