David Preston Jessop – Robyn Brown’s Ex-Husband
David Preston Jessop is Robyn Brown’s ex-husband. He is a resident of Montana and works in the Heating Ventilation and Air Condition business. He lives a private life and is committed to staying off the media radar.
He is also related to Kody Brown’s wives Meri and Christine through family ties. He is technically their third cousin.
David Preston Jessop and Robyn Brown
Despite being the ex-husband of a reality TV star, David Preston Jessop has kept a low profile. He is a family man and works in the HVAC industry. He has three children with Robyn and has maintained a private life.
He and Robyn got married in 1999 when she was 21 years old. Their marriage lasted for about 11 years before they divorced in 2009. They had three children together named Dayton, Aurora, and Breanna.
Robyn later married Kody Brown in a polygamous marriage. Her kids with David were adopted by the patriarch of the family, Kody. According to a Tumblr post, Kody and his wives, Meri, Christine, and Robyn, are related to David through blood and marriage ties.
The family belongs to the Apostolic United Brethren, a branch of the FLDS Church that practices polygamy. In addition, the patriarch of the family has many children with his other wives. This makes the relationship between David and the Sister Wives wives somewhat complex.
David’s Children with Robyn
David and Robyn had three children before their separation. Their son Dayton was born in 2000, and their daughters Aurora and Breanna followed in the years to come.
According to Starcasm, when Robyn joined Kody’s polygamist family in 2010, she brought along thousands of dollars worth of debt from store credit cards. The outlet claims that the debt included Sears, Target, and Victoria’s Secret.
When the pair began their relationship, Robyn was still a student and David eagerly made the drive from his home in upstate New York to visit her on campus. The drive usually felt like a breeze, and the two shared an easy connection that has lasted through their 50 years together.
Although David has remained out of the public eye, he was arrested in early 2018, per TV Season & Spoilers. The alleged incident involved assaulting a family member, and David was charged with criminal assault. He later had the charges downgraded to disorderly conduct and was ordered to pay fines.
David’s Relationship with Kody Brown
During her time as one of Kody’s wives, Christine Brown became the matriarch of the family. She helped raise his six biological children – Aspyn, Mykelti, Paedon, Gwendlyn, and Truely – while also caring for the kids of her Sister Wives.
When it came time to leave the polygamist family in 2021, Christine was happy to start a new chapter of her life with her new boyfriend David Woolley. However, her best friend and former Sister Wife Janelle was less than impressed with her whirlwind romance.
Interestingly, many Sister Wives fans have noticed that David and Kody share a resemblance. That’s because they are actually third cousins through the Apostolic United Brethren, a subset of the Latter-Day Saints that advocates for polygamy. David is related to two of Kody’s wives – Meri and Christine – as well as the three adopted kids from Robyn’s marriage to him. He is also related to the kids in Robyn’s current husband Kody’s household because they are all members of the AUB.
David Preston Jessop is currently living a low profile life off the grid in Montana. He is a successful Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) professional who has made a name for himself in his industry.
He has a strong bond with his children Solomon and Ariella Mae with Robyn Brown, whom he married in 2004. He has also been spotted spending time with his grandkids, including Dayton, Aurora, and Breanna from his first marriage to Christine.
As for his future, he seems to be well off financially and enjoying the solitude of his rural lifestyle. He is committed to keeping a low profile and has no traceable social media profiles. It is unclear whether he got into any new relationships after his divorce from Kody or whether he is married. However, he does remain part of the Apostolic United Brethren Church that the Sister Wives members are associated with. He is a second cousin to Kody’s wife, Christine, by both blood and marriage ties.
