Jennifer Hageney might be known to some because she is Andrew Shue’s first wife. But there’s more to her story than just being an actor’s ex-wife. After her marriage ended, Jennifer didn’t just sit around. She turned a new leaf and started over, creating a new life for herself.

Now, Jennifer lives in the San Francisco Bay Area and works as a florist. Yep, she makes those cool flower arrangements you see at weddings and other big events. And guess what? She’s also remarried, finding happiness again after her public breakup with Andrew.

But despite the new chapters in her life, the former flames still share something special: their three kids, Nate, Aiden, and Wyatt. This connection keeps their past intertwined, even as they both move forward in different directions.

So, if you’re curious about how someone can go from being known as someone’s ex to making a name for themselves, Jennifer’s story is pretty interesting.

Jennifer Met Andrew While Working as His Agent

It was in the fall of 1994 when they first met each other. At the time, Jennifer served as Andrew’s agent, representing United Talent Agency. Their professional interactions as an agent and an actor laid the groundwork for a deeper connection, ultimately leading to a romantic relationship. This phase at UTA was pivotal for Jen, as it intertwined her personal life with her professional endeavors.

After dating for a couple of months, the couple got engaged in March 1995. Despite some sources mistakenly saying they got married in 1994, they actually tied the knot on October 7, 1995. This date lines up with what EntertainmentWeekly said about them getting engaged in March 1995, and a December 1995 article from Spokesman-Review confirms they had only been married for two months at that time.

At the time of their wedding, Andrew was 28 and Jennifer was 31. Yes, she is three years older than him.

Meanwhile, Andrew and Jennifer’s marriage hit a rough patch pretty early on, just two months after the wedding, according to the same Spokesman-Review article. The article mentioned that Hageney was having a hard time with Andrew’s long workdays on the set of Melrose Place. This was kind of ironic since she used to be his agent and knew all about the demanding hours of his job.

But, they managed to work through their problems and stayed together. During their marriage, Andrew and Jennifer became parents to three sons, building their own little family.

Several years later, in 2008, the duo divorced, marking the end of a wonderful marriage. Just like how there’s a disparity in her marriage date, there’s some confusion on it as well. So, an article by NJ.com published in March 2009, still referred to Jennifer as Andrew’s wife.

They Both Have Both Since Re-Married

After splitting up with Andrew, Jennifer Hageney didn’t stay single forever. She found love again and married businessman Chip Alfred Kahn IV on March 20, 2013. They got married on a beach, and it looked pretty amazing from the photos Jennifer shared online.

All three of her sons were there, and her oldest, Nate, even walked her down the aisle, which was special for them.

Her husband Chip isn’t just any regular guy; he’s a big deal in the business world. In 2014, he started his own company OvationCXM in Tiburon, California, where he serves as the CEO. He’s really into technology and has made a name for himself there.

Jennifer and Chip don’t have any kids together. That being said, Chip loves his stepson from Jennifer’s marriage with Shue.

On the other hand, her ex-husband Shue married journalist Amy Robach on February 6th, 2010. Their marriage ended in 2023, after Amy’s cheating scandal with TJ Holmes.

Her Son Was In an Accident

Jennifer and Andrew’s eldest, Nate, born on August 1, 1996, is trying to make it as an actor. In January 2023, Nate experienced a scare when he posted a photo of his damaged black pickup truck after an accident.

The front of the truck was badly damaged, but Nate seemed to be unharmed. He used the incident to remind his followers to “hug your people,” emphasizing the importance of cherishing loved ones.

Their second son, Aiden, born in 1999, has taken a different path, working as a Business Development Associate at BlackRock. The youngest of the siblings, Wyatt, born in 2004, is currently pursuing his studies in college. Despite their varied interests and stages in life, the Shue children maintain a close-knit relationship.

She Comes from a Large Family

Jennifer hails from a closely-knit family. She is one of five children born to Raymond Joseph Hageney and Barbara Ellen Hageney. Growing up with two sisters, Ellen and Trish, and two brothers, Rich and Dan, Jennifer experienced the joys and challenges of a large family dynamic.

The bond between the Hageney siblings is notably strong and affectionate, as evidenced by the numerous photos and memories they share on social media. This public display of familial affection highlights the deep connection they share, reinforcing the image of a family that values togetherness and support.

Sadly, the Hageney family faced a significant loss when Raymond, Jennifer’s father, passed away on December 20th, 2021, at the age of 91. His passing undoubtedly left a void in the family, yet it seems to have strengthened the bond between the siblings and their mother.

Their matriarch, Barbara, now in her 80s, remains a central figure in the family, embodying strength and resilience.

She Works as a Florist Today

Jennifer Hageney, now 59, lives in San Francisco. After working as an agent for a bit, she switched careers and started working with flowers.

She also worked at Willow for a little while. Even though she’s had some ups and downs in her business, she’s still really into flowers and uses that passion in her life in San Francisco.
