Confused Too much to say about a man who remarries so quickly after his wife passes away.


Jazz coach Jerry Sloan remarries in private ceremony

By Linda Hamilton
Deseret Morning News

In a very private ceremony in the Salt Lake Valley on Tuesday, Utah Jazz coach Jerry Sloan married Tammy Jessop of Herriman.
Sloan and Jessop were engaged near the end of the last Jazz season but hadn't set a date then, said Jazz vice president of communications Linda Luchetti, who added that Jessop had attended several games last season.

Few people from the Jazz were even aware the wedding took place until late this week, she said, and Jazz owner Larry H. Miller indicated in a radio interview Thursday that Sloan's grown children, who live in Illinois, Indiana and Nebraska, did not attend the small ceremony.

The bride and groom then traveled to Sloan's home in McLeansboro, Ill., and he was to be back in Salt Lake City next week to prepare for the season. Training camp starts Oct. 2, and the first regular-season game is Nov. 1 with Houston in the Delta Center.

Jessop works for a company that supplies food for restaurants in the area. She has a grade-school-aged son, Rhett.
Sloan lost his first wife, Bobbye, to pancreatic cancer in June 2004.

2 years?

Thats long enough in my eyes.

How long do you think a person should wait to remarry when their spouse dies?

Seriously, who are we to stand in the way of love? I don't remember there being a clause in my marriage certificate or vows
Until death do you part...but even then you have a minimum 5 year morning period

It doesn't mean he didn't love his wife any more, or any less. What it means is a guy who has been dealt a bad card in life has been given another chance to form a loving relationship, whether its 5 years after death, 2 years after, or at her funeral (ok, even I find that one is a bit too much...).
Thumbs up

Nah, 2 1/2 years is plenty long enough for Jerry I think.
He is after all, how old? 60? Mr. Green He can't really afford to wait too long.

lol oh thank god he remarried I was so concerned! hehe. In all seriousness, is this too soon or a lil nuts? probably. But unless you've gone through it, it's very hard to pass judgement. A member of my community lost his wife and started dating shortly after because it's just so tough without the companionship and whatnot. Very hard situation...

yeah but think about it, he was obviously in a long term marriage, and there would have been a lot of grieving at the end for all the family. I don't think he really thought about how his kids would feel about it. Because it said in dunleavyjr's post that none of his kids attended the wedding ceremony. That to me suggests that they were unhappy about their father moving on with his life so quickly. And it really gives the impression that he wasn't affected by the loss as much as they were expecting.

I know if it was me and I saw my own dad dating again within like say 6mths or a year and then getting married just 2 years later I don't think I'd attend the wedding. It just seems to me to be disrespectful. Not just to his kids but also to his deceased wife's family too. I mean it's good that he's able to move on and all.. Am I wrong here?

I agree with Sheriff.

Also, you guys have to understand, that a husband and a wife is a complete unit. A child isn't needed to complete that unity. So once a man marries a woman, they become one. Children are just extensions. My point is, a man or a woman does not need to HEAVILY consider their childrens feelings if they wanted to re-marry.

At least that's what I believe in. Of course people will get hurt, but that's life.

2 years isn't that bad. The bad thing there is, that the woman Sloan is marrying might be just there for the rebound. But if she is someone he had known for years, then good.

We should leave this alone you know. Wink

Well said Petey. We NBA boys are getting so bored we're meddling with other people's married lives. Laughing

I think I'm gonna throw up and faint with joy when the opening tip off happens.

How long to go now?!?

The new wife probablly was already secretly married to him out there in Utah. She was just wife number 2 in the polygamy chain.......

2 years is plenty. I tell you what, if something were to happen to my wife I would never remarry but I would be hittin some ass if you new what I mean. And Plenty of it to make up for the lost time of being Married. LOL

I was a Tiger fan before 2006
