Jason Hoppy – born September 10, 1970, is 53 years old.

A businessman and former reality TV star, Jason Hoppy earned his celebrity status as the husband of Bravo’s Real Housewives of New York alum Bethenny Frankel. They have completed the journey involved in going their separate ways after their divorce was finalized in January 2021, more than 8 years after separating.

Hoppy’s current whereabouts are unknown at the moment as he looks to, in his own words, put the toxic environment created by the custody battle they had for their daughter Bryn behind him. From the information available to us, Jason Hoppy has not remarried but as of the time of writing, his ex, Bethenny, appears to be on her way to tying the knot for the third time in her life. The former RHONY star is currently engaged to film producer Paul Bernon having begun dating him in 2018.

Although it appears Jason Hoppy hasn’t remarried, here’s all we know about him and his marriage to Bethenny Frankel.

How old is Jason Hoppy, and where is he from?

Jason Hoppy is 53 years old, and he is from New York. The former celebrity husband was born on September 10, 1970, in New York City, United States. His birth sign is Virgo, and he belongs to the Caucasian ethnic group. Jason Hoppy is also an American citizen courtesy of his birthplace and parental heritage.

Speaking of parents, Jason Hoppy is one of 2 children born to Robert M. Hoppy and Carol A. Hoppy. A crucial life-changing event for the Hoppy family in February 1991 means that Jason is now the only surviving child of his parents as that was when his younger brother Bryan allegedly died in an accident, although the family has yet to reveal what kind of accident it was.

Although there are no solid facts to back it up, Jason Hoppy most likely spent his formative years in his home state of New York, formative years that must have included a fair amount of time in elementary, middle, and high school. He then proceeded to Scranton, Pennsylvania, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in an as-yet-unknown area of study, presumably business-related, from the University of Scranton.

Jason Hoppy is a businessman

So far, we have no way of knowing precisely what Jason Hoppy did immediately after earning his college degree. However, we can confirm that at some point in his professional career, the 53-year-old former celebrity husband worked as a real estate agent. It is yet unclear when he started, or how long he earned money through that means.

At some point, he became a pharmaceutical sales representative working freelance with several pharmaceutical companies in the United States. His time in that area of business coincided with when he met his ex-wife Bethenny Frankel which opened up another source of income for the New York native as a reality TV star.

Jason Hoppy’s net worth

While it is way short of his ex-wife’s estimated $70 million, Jason Hoppy’s estimated net worth of $6 million is still quite impressive in the larger scheme of things and is an achievement very few people on the planet get to achieve at his just over a half-century age or over a lifetime.

Given how withdrawn he has become from the spotlight since his divorce was made final, it remains to be seen whether Jason is still a pharmaceutical sales rep, or if he has found some new business venture, but one thing most people would agree on is the fact that he earned a majority of his net worth through his various business endeavors, including real estate and by selling pharmaceutical products.

Jason Hoppy was married to Bethenny Frankel from 2010 to 2012

Jason Hoppy got a taste of reality TV and the spotlight in 2009 when he began dating Bethenny Frankel. He remained in the spotlight for the duration of their courtship, brief marriage, drawn-out divorce proceedings, and the toxic and distressing custody battle of their only child together.

Jason began dating the Boston University and New York University graduate, Bethenny Frankel in 2009. Born November 4, 1970, in New York City, United States, we have yet to ascertain certain aspects of their early days together, including when, where, and how they met.

At the time, Jason’s now ex-wife was a star on Bravo’s Real Housewives of New York City. The businessman had a whirlwind courtship with Bethenny which began and ended within 11 months, after which they decided to take things to the next level. They exchanged marital vows in March 2010, in front of a reality TV series audience on Bravo’s Bethenny Getting Married series which they were both stars of.

In May 2010, the former couple welcomed their only daughter Bryn Hoppy and starred in yet another Bravo-inspired TV series titled Bethenny Ever After which chronicled the couple’s married life and journey to parenthood following the birth of their daughter.

The well-curated marriage bubble between Jason and his ex-wife burst only after 2 years, and the pieces saw them going their separate ways in 2012.

Jason Hoppy’s ex-wife now has full custody of their daughter Bryn

Following their separation, the couple reached an agreement in 2014 over joint custody of their child with the former celebrity husband having primary care of Bryn. In 2016, they reached a financial agreement that saw the former RHONY alum pay child support for the next few years until a judge put a stop to it in 2020, and awarded full legal custody of Bryn to her, as well as primary residential custody.

Before that, Bethenny had sued for primary custody of their child, a decision that did not sit well with Jason, and a bitter custody battle ensued. During proceedings, Jason’s ex-wife alleged that he had verbally and physically assaulted her and he was briefly arrested.

The former couple’s divorce was eventually finalized in January 2021. However, while Bethenny, who was previously married to entertainment executive Peter Sussman (1996-1997), and then Jason, appears to be headed into her third marriage, as she is now engaged to her partner, film producer Paul Bernon, it looks like Hoppy, who has since withdrawn from the limelight, is flying solo.
