Adam Burks and Jessica Mendoza-relationship
Adam Burks and Jessica Mendoza are happily married. They met in 2004 at a wedding in Southern California. Adam had elaborated on their meeting:
“We met at a wedding in Southern California where we live, I met Jessica in the 2004 Olympic year. We hit it off from there, and it blossomed… Life has a funny way of working out.”
Jessica was having a career in softball and was not in the USA most of the time. Hence the couple was in a long-distance relationship but the distance did not affect their relationship. When she returned from Athens, Adam gave her a scrapbook full of her cuttings. Jessica was impressed. Talking about it, Jessica had told NY Post in 2016:
“He’s not really the guy who [usually] makes scrapbooks, I’ve come to learn,”
After her team won a silver at the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics, Jessica who is a Standford University graduate retired from playing in the year 2010. The couple had got married on 30 September 2006. The couple has two children-sons Caleb, 6 and Caden, 2.
Adam Burks and his career and net worth
Adam is a former athlete and played several sports at school. He is also a US Marines veteran who served in the Operation Desert Storm in Iraq. He had also worked as a civil engineer for the City of Moorpark, California. After the birth of his first son in 2009, he decided to not do any work and became a stay-home father.
Jessica was at first traveling for her professional softball games and matches and now she does it for her ESPN coverage of baseball games. Hence Adam continued his role as a stay-home dad. Jessica had said that she did not think that this arrangement would last longer but it did. Jessica said in 2016 in an interview:
“I was like, ‘There’s no way I can go,’ My husband was like, ‘Let’s do it. Let’s just try this.’”
Talking of this role reversal, she said:
“We’re a role-reversal family in every way possible, And I love that our country has evolved to that. It doesn’t matter who makes money, as long as something is rolling in and you’re happy.”
Jessica’s parents reside in the nearby neighborhood of Camarillo and assist Adam in taking care of the kids. Jessica is happy with the arrangement and said:
“I know I wouldn’t be in this position with work (without this arrangement), because I’ve been able to say yes to so many opportunities, If I were with the boys 24 hours a day, it might feel more routine. I appreciate them every day, having a moment to love on each other. And it’s awesome for me to know that if I’m gone, they’re with their dad, and there is such a bond they have that I don’t think would be there if he was still working the hours that he once did.”
Adam’s net worth is not revealed but Jessica’s is $ 2 million.
