Who is Jeff Tietjens?

Jeff Tietjens was born in San Francisco, California USA on 18 August 1970 – his zodiac sign is Leo, he holds American nationality, and is of Italian descent. He’s a lawyer, but who’s perhaps known best for being the former husband of the popular American actress and comedienne Aisha Tyler.

Early life and education

Jeff was raised in San Francisco by his parents, about whom nothing’s known as he respects their privacy; it’s believed that his father was a lawyer, as well, and that his mother was a housewife. Because he hasn’t spoken of having any siblings, most people believe that Jeff is an only child.

He looked up to his father while growing up, and thus chose to become a lawyer, however, Jeff still had numerous other interests.

He played basketball while attending a local high school, and also did a bit of acting. He matriculated in 1988, and then enrolled at Dartmouth College, from which he graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in 1992; he continued his education at the same college, and obtained his Master’s degree in law in 1994.

His career

Jeff has apparently worked as a lawyer since university, however, it seems that he hasn’t been involved in any highly important cases, which would help him attract attention on the internet.

Love life and marriage with Aisha Tyler

Jeff met Aisha while they were both attending Dartmouth College, and they started dating, and the two married in a private ceremony, attended by the closest of their friends and family members, after they had both graduated in 1992.


They remained together for 24 years, and didn’t have children because they both wanted to focus on their careers, although there are rumors circulating the internet, claiming that Jeff eventually wanted children but Aisha didn’t, which was partly why Jeff filed for divorce in April 2016.

It was finalized a year later, and because of Aisha’s wealth of over $10 million, she was ordered to pay Jeff $500,000 plus $31,250 a month, until the total sum reaches $2 million.

Neither of the two has spoken of any other people whom they have perhaps been with, and as of December 2021, Jeff appears to be single, was once married to Aisha Tietjens, and doesn’t have children.

Hobbies and other interests

Jeff’s career as a lawyer has taken him to various US states, and he’s thus fallen in love with travelling, however, he still travels for work more often than for pleasure. He has apparently also been to several European and Asian countries, and his favorite city, out of those which he’s visited is Munich in Germany.

He’s a lover of animals, with dogs and wolves being his favorites; Jeff has a pet dog, and the two have been seen walking together by several of Alisha’s fans.

Jeff seems to be interested in philanthropy, and has donated money to a couple of charity organizations which aim to help war veterans and underprivileged children; while he was still married to Alisha, the two donated money together, as well as volunteered on a couple of occasions.


Late at night, Jeff likes to watch movies starring his favorite actor and actress, Jim Carrey and Anne Hathaway, such as “Yes Man”, “Liar Liar” and “Les Miserables”.

Age, height and net worth

Jeff’s age is 51. He has short brown hair and green eyes, his height is 5ft 8ins (1.7m) and he weighs around 140lbs (65kgs).

As of December 2021, his net worth has been estimated at over $8 million.
