Parent's Divorce After Maceo's Birth

When Maceo was born, everyone in his family was very happy.

Around April 2017, the ex-husband and ex-wife decided to live separately. 

After separating ways, Maceo, with his sister Sadie, started living with their mom, Aryn.

After some time of declaring their split, Aryn did not allow Jesse to visit the children, due to which the couple started quarreling over custody of the children. 

Aryn revealed to the court that Jesse always has a busy and unpredictable work schedule, due to which he never took care of his kids correctly. 

Aryn even added by saying that Jesse could never take care of the kids without her or their nanny's help. 

After all these words of Aryn, Jesse denied things and said he has always been trying hard to maintain his relationship with his children.

Jesse Mistook A Shark For Whale

Jesse gave an interview on Jimmy Kimmel’s talk show where he talked about one of the horrifying nights at the sea. 

He had a hobby of sailing when he was young but dropped it off later, and as he moved to the West Coast near the ocean, he is planning to continue his sailing hobby. 

He grew up sailing boats in the summers with his family. He has a big family, and his uncles are boat builders, sailors, and captains, so they spent all their New England summers sailing and going on trips. 

Jesse said that he wasn’t perfect, but he did grow up racing Wiggins. He and his family had gone on long trips to with no sight of land and had amazing experiences. 

Those trips have always been a humble experience. On those trips, they even have to face big storms however, Jesse never gets nervous about those. 

He then recalled one of the long trips where he had experienced the scariest night. 

He and his other two friends went on a long trip to Providence to Nova Scotia. 

They were in college at that time, and it was a day-long trip. They sailed their boat for six days with the sight of land. 

He and his friends watch the sunrise and sunset. One night, he and his other two friends, Collins and Jonah, were drinking and watching a group of whales swimming under the moonlight. 

One of the whales came there and started playing with it. The boat had a rubber dinghy hanging, so the whale started playing with his. 

Jesse and his friend Collins wanted to look at the whale closely, so they went over the dinghy and started taking pictures. 

Jesse wanted to touch it but saw a dorsal fin and started asking what type of whales have a dorsal fin. 

It took him a while to realize that it was a shark, not a whale. He was so scared that he peed a little on himself. It was the most terrifying night for him.


Maceo is seven years old now. His father, Jesse, is 40 years old now. 

Net Worth

Maceo is a kid with no income, but his father, Jesse, has a net worth of 12 million dollars. 

He earns this amount by being involved in acting, producing, and also directing.

Jesse Requested To Lower The Children's Support Payment

After completing his work in Grey's Anatomy, Jesse did not have the huge income he used to have. 

Due to having less income of $1668 per week, which is a huge difference from what he used to earn, he requested to reduce the amount of support.

The support amount was huge at $40,000 monthly, which was a bit difficult to provide. 

After the legal process, it was said that Jesse makes much less than he used to make during his appearance in the Broadway play Take Me Out.

After his request, the court decided that Jesse no longer had to pay the huge amount of 40 thousand dollars. 

Around April 2022, the court reduced the support amount from 40 thousand dollars to 6,613 dollars.

The court also decided that Jesse had to pay half the amount on the first day of the month and the other half had to pay after 15 days.
