Joe Rogan family

Rogan’s parents got divorced when he was five years old. He hasn’t spoken to his father since he was seven. He said, “All I remember of my dad are these brief, violent flashes of domestic violence… But I don’t want to complain about my childhood. Nothing bad ever really happened to me… I don’t hate the guy.”
He resided in San Francisco, California, from the age of seven to eleven. Following this, his family relocated to Gainesville, Florida.
In 2009, Rogan married Jessica Ditzel, a former cocktail waitress. They both have two daughters. The daughters were born in 2008 and 2010. Rogan is also Ditzel’s stepfather from a prior relationship. In 2008, the family relocated to Boulder, Colorado, for four months. This was before they returned to Southern California when his wife was expecting.
They relocated to Bell Canyon, California, where Rogan had been living since early 2003. In mid-2018, they paid over $5 million for a new property in the region. The family will move into a $14 million property on Lake Austin, Texas, in 2020.
Rogan went on a carnivore diet for the full month of January 2020. He only consumed grass-fed beef, elk, eggs, and vitamins and supplements like amino acids and fish oil.
Rogan once said that martial arts “gave me not just confidence, but also a different perspective of myself and what I was capable of. I knew that I could do something I was terrified of, and that was really difficult, and that I could excel at it. It was a big deal for me.”
Martial arts were “the first thing that ever gave me hope that I wasn’t going to be a loser. So I really, really gravitated toward it.”
Rogan got enrolled in the University of Massachusetts Boston but dropped out before graduating. He grew up in the Boston region till he was 24 years old.
Following Royce Gracie’s bout at UFC 2: No Way Out in 1994, Rogan got interested in jiu-jitsu. Rogan began training in Brazilian jiu-jitsu at Carlson Gracie’s Hollywood, California, school in 1996.
