Who Are Ketanji Brown Jackson Daughters?
We know by now that Ketanji Brown met her husband Patrick G. Jackson because of her debating skill. She landed the opportunity to go to Harvard for a debate competition where she met Patrick. According to NPR, Patrick was Ketanji’s first “serious boyfriend”. She and her husband were an “unlikely pair” in many ways because her spouse was a pre-med and math major and Ketanji was a government major. But they eventually discovered each other and dated for the next six and a half years, until they graduated from college.
Ketanji then earned her law degree and married her husband Patrick on 12 October 1996. Together they have two daughters, Talia, and, Leila.
In the 2017 speech, Ketanji also talked about the parenting style. Ketanji shared she and her husband taught their daughters to put work before play and respect all people. She also added, “I believe it’s my obligation to teach my children to refrain from casting aspersions on others because of their life circumstances. In other words, as they often say in religious circles: I know that there but for the grace of God go I.”
