Chip revealed that his wife Lynne was the one who made him finish college.

He had dropped out from the Art Center College of Design when she was his girlfriend, and Lynne made it very clear that she would marry him only if he finished his degree.

He shared the story with Hot cars and said,

So I knew I had to figure out how to get back to Art Center, and it’s the best thing I ever did in my life

Indeed, his wife has a huge impact on his life, and Chip openly appreciates it.

Similarly, he opened his company Foose Designs with Lynne as well. She took over many roles in the company initially and worked day and night with her husband to build the company.

As a result, she is now the CFO of the brand and makes all the company's big decisions.

Even today, he accounts for his decision to marry Lynne as the best decision he's ever made. He also doesn't hesitate to give his wife the credit where it's due.

"I can say that she's the reason we're still here today. She's an incredible woman, and she puts up with me," he said.
