JonBenet Ramsey’s tragedy-plagued dad has secretly married a beautiful woman 14 years his junior.
In an exclusive ENQUIRER interview, John Ramsey, 67, whose life has been rocked by a series of faith-testing tragedies revealed he tied the knot with Jan Rousseaux, 53, a Las Vegas-based fashion designer.
And in words filled with emotion, John told how his little beauty queen daughter – murdered on Christmas night 1996 in his Boulder, Colo., home – would be proud of her dad “I have no doubt she will be smiling,” he tells The ENQUIRER.
John was shattered by the brutal murder of 6-year-old JonBenet – who would have turned 21 on Aug. 6.
But he’s also had to endure the death of his beloved wife Patsy from ovarian cancer in 2006 at 49, and the loss of another daughter, Elizabeth, in a 1992 car accident at 22.
John admitted he had a brief romance with Beth Twitty – the mother of Natalee Holloway, the Alabama teen who vanished in Aruba in 2005. But that ended four years ago.
He met Jan, a divorcee with two grown children, at a mutual friend’s wedding in Denver two years ago, but their friendship didn’t develop.
Then last June, Jan texted John to let him know she was thinking of him.
“Immediately he asked if he could come to see me, just as friends,” said Jan.
Soon, the relationship blossomed leading to their private wedding in Charlevoix, Michigan on July 21.
The FULL INTERVIEW with John Ramsey and EXCLUSIVE wedding pictures of the happy couple are in the new NATIONAL ENQUIRER on sale at newsstands and retail stores from today through the weekend.
