Meet Louis Ozawa, Jackie Chung’s Husband
Louis (pronounced LOU-EE) is not Jackie Chung’s husband, but he is also her partner in crime. They always have had a great relationship.
Speaking of their marriage, it happened on 12 January 2013.
The two met at an audition for a short film. They got the parts and were paired up to be a newly-wed arranged couple. Talking about it later, Louis explained that they hit it off so well, the director, who ended up casting them, asked if they knew each other already. Meanwhile, Louis had never seen her in his life. In his words, lightning struck that day he met her and he was so smitten. Even Jackie experienced the same. They fell in love and the same director married them when they exchanged their wedding vows.
The first project the duo worked together was the award-winning short film directed by Jae Choe. It was made at NYU Tisch School of the Arts Graduate Film Department. In March 2023, the real-life duo again came together professionally for a story called The Dust-Up, which is inspired by tales told in many African countries. Before, they also directed and starred in The Translators.
Jackie and her husband also have two kids. They were five-year-old and a six-month-old as of May of 2020, during the time of the COVID pandemic when both Louis and Jackie were working from their home in LA. Louis himself was struck down with the coronavirus which laid him up in bed for days. And it was therefore a struggle for him not to be able to help his wife with their two children. He said this and more as he found time to tell a timely story exit6. At the time, Louis also had detailed the impact the pandemic had on his projects. One of the plays that he had been preparing for got shut down before opening night.
So, Louis and his wife share two sons. Their eldest Bodi turned 8 years old on 16 April 2023. Bodi, when he was only six months old, landed his first gig with the famous cinematographer Lance Accord. It was a little commercial for Kohls that ran during the Oscars and featured Penelope Cruz among other actors. Louis had gone to play dad, and the young child who he was supposed to be paired up with did not show up. He happened to have his son with him, and so he brought him into the audition.
When it was time for the youngest Tyrus, Jackie unexpectedly gave birth to him, while they were attending the Busan Film Festival to promote Wayne Wang’s new film, Coming Home Again, in October of 2019.
Still, the most famous one in the family is their beloved pit bull mix Atticus. Jackie even calls him their firstborn son. Atticus not only has a fan following on the interwebs and social media, but he also had his debut in a Chinese hand sanitizer commercial.
