American actor Jason Gedrick is famous for his supporting roles in several box-office hits and critically successful movies.
From his childhood days, Jason saw the divorce firsthand as he himself grew up with his mother, while his siblings were raised elsewhere, by his dad. Jason grew up experiencing his parents' divorce but later, he faced the same fate in his married life.
However, he made sure his children never experience the lack of fatherly love, as an ideal father despite the separation from his ex-wife.

Marriage And Divorce With Wife
Jason turned himself into a married man after he tied the knot with Dana Lavas in 1989.
Soon, the couple welcomed three children together from their marriage union and raised the family to five. His eldest son Jian was born in 1991, whereas his second son Garrett and youngest Ty were conceived respectively in 1994 and 1995.

The Chicago-born actor and his wife were living happily with their three offsprings for eight years until the couple got divorced in 1997. However, it was a mutual separation, where the pair even agreed to share 50-50 custody of their sons.
Loving Dad To His Children After Split
Despite the divorce, Jason's fatherly love to his kids was never disrupted. For the sake of his children, he lived close by his ex-wife Dana in suburban Los Angeles.
Further, the actor, who travels to different locations for work, liked to spent his limited free time with his children. He also made meals for his sons and did their laundry.
In an interview with the Washington Times in 2001, Jason shared:
When I´m not working, we have a week-on, week-off arrangement. We have plenty of time together, there is no race to get things done. We just enjoy each other´s company. I look forward to making their pancakes and right now I´m doing a load of laundry."
As of now, Jason's kids have grown up and are focussing on their own life and career. In the meanwhile, Jason is reportedly single with no dating activities and has not turned anyone into his girlfriend in the recent years.
