Meet Jon Lester’s wife Farrah
Farrah Lester was born on April 17, 1984, in South Carolina. She met her now-husband in 2007.
Lester was diagnosed with anaplastic large cell lymphoma in 2006. It was around four months after his diagnosis that he met Farrah, who at the time was a nursing student for the Greenville Drive, the Red Sox’ Single-A affiliate.
The pair dated for about a year before getting engaged, and then a year after that, they married.
What is Jon Lester’s net worth?
Since meeting her husband, Farrah has been active in charity work. In fact, the couple launched a charity called NVRQT (Never Quit) in 2012 with the goal of assisting with the fight against pediatric cancer.
Following the cancer diagnosis of their first son, Hudson, and the birth of their second kid, Ben, the cause that had become near and dear to their hearts was Breast Cancer Awareness.
Lester’s net worth is likely to be approximately $52 million.
