Jed Lowrie’s wife Milessa Muchmore has probably the coolest name in baseball.
I dare ANYONE to disagree with that.
Being married to a baseball player pretty much gives her the ability to do anything or nothing with her life, if she so chose. But, in the case of Jed Lowrie’s wife, she’s taken the path of the incredibly accomplished. In between pole vaulting and “hanging out,” with Jed at Stanford, Milessa earned a double major in Spanish and International Relations. She later went on to earn double Master’s degrees in International Relations and Public Affairs. That’s a hell of a lot more than most anyone will accomplish in life.
Milessa has an educational background, as the SF Gate reported in 2014:
She graduated with an emphasis in international relations and went on to Princeton’s Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, where she received her master’s degree in international relations. Lowrie, who left school early when he was drafted by the Red Sox, eventually earned his bachelor’s degree from Stanford.
Jed Lowrie’s wife met him at Stanford
Jed and Milessa met while attending Stanford together. They began dating shortly after undergrad. Alhough Milessa graduated, Lowrie left early with big league aspirations. He later returned for that degree as noted above. Milessa was a pole vaulter on the track and field team, while Jed shockingly played baseball. The two married November 12, 2011. At the time, we predicted that would be just a couple weeks after the Sox win their 3rd World Series in 8 years. We were two years early.
She currently works for the US State Department in a role requiring her to live a nomadic lifestyle traveling across the globe and spending short assignments in various locations. She had a lengthy assignment in Toronto. It appears that the Bay Area is their new semi-permanent home. That works best for everyone.
Jed Lowrie’s wife Milessa gave birth to their two kids, Saige and Miles Lowrie Saige Lowrie was born in the 2013-2014 offseason. Miles was born in late 2016.
