Australian women’s cricket team all-rounder Jess Jonassen has tied the knot with her long-time partner and “best friend” Sarah Wearn. The wedding ceremony took place on April 6 on Magic Island, Waikiki, O’ahu, after multiple delays due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The couple had initially planned to get married in May 2020 but had to postpone it twice.
The 30-year-old Jonassen, who is a left-arm spinner and a useful batter, has been a crucial member of the Australian cricket team for over ten years. She has played a significant role in Australia’s triumph at the 2020 T20 World Cup and the 2022 ODI World Cup. Jonassen recently participated in the inaugural Women’s Premier League, where she played a crucial role in Delhi Capitals’ journey to the final.
