Not many know, but Hope Davis’ husband is also an actor and musician. Well, there are several other interesting facts about him, which are mentioned below. So, keep reading!
Only Child Of His Parents
Hope Davis’ partner, Jon, was born in 1968. He grew up in New Haven, Connecticut as the only child of Bruce E. Walker and Ann Adams Walker. Sadly, Jon Patrick Walker’s parents were divorced and have already passed away. His mom passed away on October 27, 2011, after a vigorous battle with ovarian cancer at Connecticut Hospice in Branford. Furthermore, Hope’s mother-in-law was a highly respected social worker who worked in clinics, hospitals, and private practices.
On the other hand, Jon Patrick Walker’s father passed away on June 2, 2022, at the same place where his mother died. He was a beloved teacher at Wightwood School. In addition, as per Hope Davis’ father-in-law’s obituary, he has two other children, Richard Dove and Emily Dove Haygood.
It must have been difficult for Jon to lose both of his parents. He often shares several pictures of them on his social media. Moreover, he scattered his mom and dad’s ashes at Seawall on Mt. Desert Island.
As the only child, Jon must have been pampered by his father and mother really well. Hopefully, he continues making them proud, and wherever they are, may they find peace.
Hope Davis’ Husband Is A Musician
Jon has been obsessed with music, mainly rock and roll, since he was a little guy. To be very specific, the obsession started after he learned to operate and play his parents’ record player, and he was only four years old then. The then-young boy spent several hours spinning the records and learned to read, trying to convert the lyrics printed on the inner sleeves of the Beatles’ “1967-1970” massive hits double LP.
Four years later, Walker began his piano lessons, and it was not that long before he wrote his first ever song. It was a ballad of loss and heartbreak named I Was In Love (Why Did She Have To Die?). Hence, a songwriter was born. Jon Patrick (JP) performed in many high school bands, and all of them featured original tunes written by him. When he went to college, he took a different subject but continued making music in his leisure time. There, also he performed as a drummer in different bands and even started to learn guitar.
After moving to New York, JP continued songwriting as it gave him his greatest fulfillment. However, throughout his 30s, Hope Davis’ husband could not make time for songwriting and making music. But, when his mom passed away in 2011, the loss caused him to do some soul-searching. That’s when Jon realized how much he missed making music and the need to focus on that part. So, the following year, he traveled to Nashville and made his debut album, The Guilty Party, released in 2013.
Since then, the New Haven-raised musician has worked on several singles and albums. Some of the albums that Walker has released are given below.
- People Going Somewhere
- Welcome to the Edge Times
All these albums consist of several tracks. His musical venture has been proven successful so far. Let’s hope Mr. Walker continues making more music and earning significantly in the coming days.
Jon Is Also An Actor
Besides being a musician, Hope Davis’ husband has also made his name in the acting world. When he was eight years old, Walker made his professional stage debut and has been working as an actor since then. He has appeared in on-and-off Broadway, on television, and in films.
As mentioned earlier, Jon mainly focused on making music at Cooperative High School. He then attended Carnegie Mellon University and majored in drama. After graduating in 1990, he moved to New York and began pursuing an acting career. Throughout his 30’s, Walker made his name in the entertainment world through several roles.
In 2006, Hope’s partner made his Broadway debut by playing Bruce Springsteen in High Fidelity. The following year, he also made an appearance in a workshop staging of Pete Townshend‘s new rock opera The Boy Who Heard Music. In addition, he has portrayed several other Broadway roles.
To talk about his movie and television series appearance, JP made his television debut in Empty Nest. Some other TV sitcoms are Rubicon, Holding the Baby, The Fighting Fitzgeralds, Melrose Place, and others. Likewise, The Secret Lives of Dentists ($3.7M), Winter’s Tale (30.8M), Thunder Force, and James McNeill Whistler and the Case for Beauty are the movies in which he appeared.
All in all, Walker must have earned significantly from his acting career. From all the income sources, it can be assumed that Jon Patrick Walker’s net worth must be a commendable sum. On the other hand, his wife, Hope Davis, has a fortune worth $3 million.
