Jerri Painter was once married to Matt Painter –whom you might know as the current head coach of the Purdue Boilermakers men’s basketball team.
Jerri’s former spouse has under his belt a pair of Sweet 16 appearances, eight NCAA Tournament berths, Big Ten regular-season and tournament titles and an international gold medal. What could have possibly made her want to separate from a successful guy? Some reports suggested Matt allegedly had an affair.
But don’t feel too bad for the lovely Jerri –who has since found new love.
According to Fabwags, Jerri Painter who is a Yoga specialist, is currently married to second hubby, Russell Harris.
Let’s take a step back for a bit. Jerri –who was born Jerri Lynn Uhrig on November 17, 1963 –and Matt Painter met during the early 90’s. The two were in a relationship for years and went onto exchange vows on May 24, 2003.
While on happier times, the former couple welcomed one daughter: Emma Painter born in 2004. Jerri Painter is also the mother of daughter Maggie from a previous relationship. Jerri was also stepmother to Matt’s son, Brayden from a previous relationship.
The former couple decided to take separate ways in 2013 after 10-years of marriage, according to the divorced docs filed in Hamilton County.
Jerri who is a Illinois native, is also a former high school athlete. According to her LinkedIn, she attended Southern Illinois University in Carbondale, IL –where she graduated with a masters degree in clinical social work.
She currently works as a Yoga teacher for the Pink Lotus Yoga Studio. According to its website, she is listed as a ‘certified yoga instructor, certified personal trainer and certified Wellness Coach.’
She is currently based in Lafayette, Indiana but has also lived in Carbondale, Illinois and Nashville, Tenn.
On Twitter she describes herself as a “High-Octane wicked wit street smart yoga meister who possesses a mature assessment of herself.”
