Ian Kinsler’s wife Tess Kinsler have been dating since high school together. While they did spend some time apart in college when Ian took the starting SS gig at Arizona State University, losing a job never turned out so well.
When Ian lost the starting SS gig, he transferred to the University of Missouri. One popular theory as to why he chose Missouri suggests that her chose the midwest because his future bride, and current girlfriend Tess was enrolled in school there.
Ian and Tess Kinsler were married November 18, 2006, and currently reside in the Detroit area. They one daughter, Rian Brooklynn Kinsler, born in December, 2008 and a son born June, 2011. Their son has the coolest name ever (especially for dudes who like their whiskey). Jack Jameson Kinsler. Badass name.
While we often times see the wives of professional athletes involved in charitable endeavors (and Tess Kinsler is no different), we don’t always see children involved. In a very cool move, Ian and Tess Kinsler had Rian help serve the community on Thanksgiving. Whether teaching the meaning of charity or the intention of Thanksgiving is unclear – but no matter the reason, it’s still a nice sight to see.
