Jo-Ellyn Tucker is the spouse of the famous American football coach and former player, Mel Tucker. Jo-Ellyn was unknown until a few days ago, but everything changed after her husband was selected as the new Michigan State coach.
Jo-Ellyn's husband, who was born on January 4, 1972, is hired by Michigan state after the coach resigned from Colorado's team on February 12, 2020. Tucker's is contracted for six years with the Spartans for a whopping $30 million.
While looking at Mel's career as a coach seems impressive and all, we just wanted to know more about his family, and his wife, Jo-Ellyn Tucker. So, we gathered as much information available about her to cater to you with interesting facts. So, let's just find out them all.

Jo-Ellyn Tucker is a celebrity spouse as she is married to her husband, Mel Tucker, who is officially the head coach of Michigan State football team now. But more than that, Jo-Ellyn is also a lawyer. She has her own identity other than just a celebrity spouse.
According to the sources, the wife of a 48-year-old former NFL player is a graduate from Rutgers Law School. Rutgers Law is tough to get in the program, which is on par with Rutgers academics as a whole. One needs a high LSAT score to get in and entails hours of hard work and dedication a day after enrolling. So we can pretty much guess, Jo-Ellyn was pretty good with her studies and her career.

Apparently, Jo-Ellyn Tucker and Mel Tucker met on a blind date, which was set by Jo-Ellyn's roommate. Despite her busy school days, Jo-Ellyn managed her time to go and meet Mel, that too, on a blind date. It was surprising for us.
But, reports suggest, Jo-Ellyn and her friend were leaving for Mel's hometown, Cleveland, for a job fair and that's how the two lovebirds met. However, Tucker talked with Jo-Ellyn on the phone before they met in person. Mel proposed his now-wife on the first date, and she said yes.
Mel Tucker said, "She was in law school, she was nice looking. I got to know her before we met. She never told me what I wanted to hear. I respect a person who tells you straight." The couple dated for a couple of months, and we're in a long-distance relationship until they got married.
