Taylor Gahagen married Jessica Pegula in late 2021 after dating the tennis star for a few years.

Gahagen took a job with the family business Pegula shortly after graduating from the State University of New York at Fredonia with a BSc in Business Administration.

He also earned an MBA from Canisius College.

Gahagen rose to the position of Senior Investment Analyst during the seven years he spent working at Pegula Sports and Entertainment.

He then became director of corporate development, director of brand strategy and worked on the marketing side for Pegulas’ NHL team, the Buffalo Sabres.

Gahagen is a noted animal philanthropist and founded an animal welfare organization called A Lending Paw in which Pegula is also involved.

“A Lending Paw’s mission is to organize events and activities that raise awareness and funds to prevent distress to people and animals, through the direct support of community programs focused on their physical and mental health, fitness and/or their nutrition,” said a Lending Paw mission statement reads.

“Our vision is to provide a helping hand that helps and connects every man, woman, and child in distress, with rescued and trained service animals.”

The couple share a love of dogs and their fur babies played a role in their marriage.

They married at the Biltmore Estate in North Carolina, which moviegoers might recognize as a location used in the films The Swan (1956), Being There (1979), The Private Eyes (1980), Mr. Destiny (1990), The Last of the Mohicans (1992), Forrest Gump (1994), Richie Rich (1994), My Fellow Americans (1996), Patch Adams (1998), Hannibal (2001) and The Odd Life of Timothy Green (2012).

Their wedding was a private affair, although WTA pros Taylor Townsend, Samantha Crawford, Jennifer Brady and Asia Muhammad were in attendance.

Gahagen played on the Fredonia men’s baseball team and was a member of the Accounting Society, Business Club and Financial Management Association.

He also sits on the Women’s and Children’s Hospital Committee and Carly’s Club Pediatric Cancer Research Committee.

Gahagen has proven to be a quick riser in the corporate sphere and has vast industry knowledge and special skills that belie his 27-year-old age.

He has a good understanding of the professional sports world having worked in both the NFL and the NHL and although he doesn’t show up on the field often, those closest to the couple say they are a good match.

The couple have no immediate plans to have children, or at least have not made their intentions public.
