Montgomery first met Deschamps in the year 2005 at the sliding track's start house atop Canada Olympic Park. Talking about the first meeting in an interview with Winnipeg Free Press in 2011, Montgomery said-

“I was looking at the start list and I saw a person by the name of Deschamps on there. I looked around the room and she was the only girl I didn't know. There was a fella from back home who I grew up with named Deschamps. I introduced myself to her and told her 'my buddy's name was Deschamps and I called him Dish, so I'm going to call you Dish too.”

In the same interview, Montgomery stated that having a wife from the same field motivates him to pursue more success. He explained-

"The best thing about having your partner with you, involved in the same sport and with me on tour last year is that you've got somebody by your side who understands the unique dynamics we go through.It lends itself to a stronger relationship because you're both involved in the same goals."

He continued-

"I think what having a great partner enables you to do is to have as much drive as you're ever going to have because you have someone supporting you. Any victories or progression you make is that much sweeter, having somebody to share it with, as opposed to it just being a solitary mission. I am really happy we do the same sport and we are able to sit down and de-brief with another, not only as teammates but as a couple sharing the same passion."

Isn’t Jon Montgomery lucky to have such a supportive wife who also loves cars and racing like him?

Though Montgomery has been married since 2011, he doesn't have any children with his better-half. The pair, who have been living a blissful married life since they are hitched, show no any hints of divorce.
