How rich is Jessica Pegula: Net worth in 2023

Jessica Pegula pleased

Jessica Pegula is the first to admit that she comes from a family of privilege, but she is also one of the hardest-working players on the tour.

Alongside her successes in singles, Pegula has also formed a formidable doubles pairing with compatriot Coco Gauff.

Pegula endured a rollercoaster season in 2023, but would enjoy a breakthrough WTA 1000 title.

The Pegula’s are Buffalo sporting royalty, owning as they do the Buffalo Bills NFL franchise and the Sabres in the NHL.

Pegula is obviously accustomed to the lifestyle of the rich and the famous, but she tends to be found on the practice court more often than not.

She will often attend glitzy events with her family or husband, but she can also be spotted on the beach with her pooches.

Pegula is also known to enjoy classic cars and while she doesn’t have her name on the deeds, her family owns properties all over the United States.

Pegula married Taylor Gahagen, an executive at the family’s sports empire, back in 2021.

The pair had been dating for a number of years.

At this stage there is no indication of when they intend to start a family.

Jessica Pegula Net Worth

Pegula’s net worth is estimated at a modest $10 million after the 2023 campaign, but that doesn’t take into account any wealth she might inherit from her parents.

After the 2023 season, Pegula sported a career prize money total of $12,383,246.

Terry Pegula is currently ranked as the 128th richest person in the United States of America with a net worth of $6.8 billion. He made his fortune in oil and gas but has since turned that into a sports empire that includes the Buffalo Bills and Buffalo Sabres.

It stands to reason then that Pegula doesn’t need her career to take off for financial reasons.

However, she is still keen to make her own way and has launched a charitable foundation focused on animals as well as a skincare line.

After a consistent but largely barren 2021, Pegula made a step up in 2022.

She bagged her first career WTA 1000 doubles titles in Qatar and later at the Canadian Open alongside Coco Gauff.

Pegula also made her WTA 1000 singles breakthrough in 2022 claiming the final event of that level for the season in Guadalajara.

After being an alternate for the 2021 Tour finals, she took part in the WTA Tour finale for the first time in 2022.

Pegula has never been beyond the last eight in a Grand Slam but she reached that stage in three of the four Majors in 2022.

Jessica Pegula has her kit supplied by Adidas and is sponsored by Yonex for her racquets.

She engages in very limited commercial partnerships and has her own skincare range called Ready 24.
