Joseph Jens Price – Bio & Facts About Tonya Harding’s Husband

For those who follow Figure Skating as a sporting interest, they might already be familiar with the life of Tonya Harding, but if that isn’t the case, the movie, I, Tonya, detailing the career of the figure skater has introduced her to a variety of personalities, through which we have to come to learn the existence of her husband, Joseph Jens Price.

Unlike his wife, Joseph Jens Price is not a man working in a media-driven industry and despite the increased attention he received following the release of the movie, he has continued to maintain a simple life as a woodworker living in Oregon with his family.

In this article, we will take a closer look at who he is, his background and everything other interesting information about the husband of Tonya Harding.

Who is Joseph Jens Price and How Old is He?

Joseph Jens Price unwittingly became one of the most significant personalities in America when he became known as the husband of one of America’s most popular figure skaters. It was a life he did not expect but has been graciously living since it became his own. On his own, not much is known about him. So far, we know that he was born in Yacolt in Washington but no real detail yet in the way of his birth date.

Not much can be said about his education but following the completion of it, Joseph Jens Price worked a number of odd jobs in order to make ends meet and he eventually began a career as an HVAC technician, becoming an expert in both heating and air conditioning systems. The lucrativeness of the profession helped Joseph build a decent life for himself.

Being another HVAC technician in America was going to be his life until a random pop-in from a national celebrity while he was enjoying his hobby as a singer at a local restaurant called Timber made him into the husband of the famous Tonya Harding.

Although his new life has resulted in making media appearances, such as red-carpet walks for the movie, I, Tonya, Joseph Jens Price has continued to maintain a modest life and he retreats to his home in Oregon with his family, making woodworks. His wife, Tonya Harding, is a famous figure skater who competed through the late 80s into the 90s. Over the course of her career, she recorded a number of victories and accolades, including the US Championship, and a silver medal at the 1991 World Championships. However, his wife, Tonya, is most known for her attack on fellow US figure skater, Nancy Kerrigan.

What To Know About His Wife and Son

Joseph Jens Price and Tonya Harding have both been blessed with a son, named Gordon Price. He was born on the 29th of February, 2011 and the couple in their occasional interviews with the media, have repeatedly mentioned that their son is the best thing to ever happen to them. Their son, Gordon, is the result of a relationship that began about a year before, having met each other during one of Tonya’s random days where she visited a restaurant after completing a media duty on the show, World’s Dumbest.

According to the story, as told by Tonya Harding to The New York Times, Joseph Jens Price was in the restaurant on a fateful day on the 23rd of June, 2010 and she instantly fell in love with his eyes. Along with his eyes was his singing ability because Joseph was on stage performing at the time. Like a scene out of a Hollywood romantic movie, a quick dash into the bar led to the start of a relationship between Joseph Jens Price and Tonya Harding and after a few months of dating, Tonya, in a twist of social conventions, asked Joseph Jens Price to marry her. Joseph said yes and they have been married ever since.

Prior to meeting Joseph Jens Price, Tonya Harding had been married twice, the first time to Jeff Gillooly between 1990 and 1993 and the second time to Michael Smith between 1995 and 1996.
