Who is Jessica Pegula’s husband Taylor Gahagen?

Taylor Gahagen’s LinkedIn profile states that he graduated with an MBA from Canisius College and studied at the State University of New York at Fredonia, where he received a BSc in business administration. Now the American works as a senior investment analyst at Private Single Family Office and he is Senior Vice President at ADPRO Sports, Inc. Moreover, together with his tennis star wife he founded A Landing Paw, a non-profit organization that supports the rescue of dogs, training them to become service animals, and delivering them to people who need service or therapy dogs.

From 2013 to 2020, Gahagen worked as director of brand strategy and corporate development at Pegula Sports and Entertainment (a company owned by Jessica’s parents). For one year in that time frame he also worked on media buying and marketing strategy for Pegulas’ NHL professional ice hockey team, the Buffalo Sabres.

American WTA players that attended the wedding included new mom Taylor Townsend, Samantha Crawford, Jennifer Brady, and Asia Muhammad, who got engaged to fellow tennis player Dayne Kelly last December.

Talking to the press at this month’s BNP Paribas Open, the 27-year-old Pegula expressed concern over Brady’s wedding outfit: “I don’t know if she has a dress, she keeps saying she’s going to look for one but every time I ask her she’s like ‘yeah I’ll go look today’ and I’m like you’re not. She says that every single day.”

Brady got ready in time and proudly showed her long-sleeved glittery silver wedding dress on Instagram. Pegula commented that Brady was trying to outshine her on her big day, but Brady responded “never”.


Award-winning luxury event planning company Asheville Event Co. was in charge of the breathtaking decor. The company’s Instagram also features a segment from Jessica Pegula’s and Taylor Gahagen’s wedding photoshoot in Paris, with the Eiffel Tower in the backdrop.

Pegula’s tennis season is not over yet. The world No.21 is set to represent the United States in the November 1-6 Billie Jean King Cup finals. Pegula’s team members at the six-day event inside Prague’s O2 Arena will be Danielle Collins, Sloane Stephens, CoCo Vandeweghe and Caroline Dolehide.
