Jason and Ellie
The amazing thing about this couple is that Jason is from Australia and Ellie is an American girl. They first met in 2005, but didn’t know at that time that destiny had such beautiful lines for them. When they first met, Ellie was waitressing at a restaurant in Twinsbutg, Ohio. Due to serendipity, these two ran into each other a few years later and it was then that they started dating each other. They met for the second time thorough Jason’s coach and current caddie, Colin Swatton.
The couple took the wedding vows in October 2009. They are blessed with two children, a girl, Lucy Adenil Day, and a boy, Dash James Day.
As we told earlier, Ellie is an American girl. She was born in Lucas, Ohio, and was raised in the state. She graduated from Lucas High School in 2004 in a class of roughly 35 students. Lucas is a small town of nearly 600 people.
Ellie is Social Media Butterfly and tweets a lot from her account. Her Twitter bio says – “Small town Ohio girl. Happens to love a guy who is good at golf. It’s nice to be important, but it’s more important to be nice.” She tweets regularly realted to Jason’s matches. We can safely say that she is Jason’s biggest fan at the moment.
She sent out a series of tweets during the third round of the U.S. Open. In the tweets, she praised Jason’s courage and efforts a day after he collapsed on the course due to dizziness. Way to go Mrs. Day!
Other Life Events
Some time back Ellie had an allergic reaction and had to go to the hospital. They had to be at the hospital for treatment till two o’clock. Jason told that Ellie got all red because of the seafood she ate. Luckily it wasn’t anything serious and the paramedics took care of her.
In recent news, Ellie, and his two children were involved in a car crash. Luckily they survived the accident without any serious harm. Ellie later posted a pic of her children on Instagram with a heartfelt message. She said that she really feels blessed after the accident as it could have been worse.
