According to the engagement announcement published in the New York Times in January 1983, Judith Ellen Kent was born in Bethesda, Maryland. Her father, Robert Kent, was the president of a Rockville insurance and real estate firm.
Kent attended Tulane University in New Orleans before returning to Washington, D.C. She graduated from Catholic University with a master’s degree in organizational psychology.
Kent, on the other hand, met her future husband in Cambridge, Massachusetts. In the early 1980s, she and Jamie Dimon were both students at Harvard Business School.
Kent’s roommate met Dimon at a mutual friend’s wedding and suggested that Kent consider dating him.
According to Money Inc., Kent ended up footing the bill on their first date because Dimon didn’t have any money on him at the time.
According to a 2012 Vanity Fair feature, Judith Kent is the spouse with the fashion sense.
Heidi Miller, a former colleague of Jamie Dimon’s, told the magazine that Dimon relied on his wife to make sure he looked presentable before leaving the house. “He’s not a lavish man.” I’m not sure what he’d look like in the morning if his wife hadn’t pointed out shirts that matched his suits. I’ve always imagined him as a little rumpled. He is unconcerned about the trappings of very fine things.”
Dimon and Kent’s Park Avenue co-op reflected this sentiment to some extent. According to online records, the couple paid slightly less than $5 million for their New York City home in 2004.
“Definitely not chump change,” the Observer wrote in 2016, “but also not exactly what one might expect from a man whose estimated yearly salary is $20 million.”
The Dimons own a much larger property in Bedford, New York, which is located in Westchester County. They paid $17 million for the 10-bedroom mansion in 2007. According to Business Insider, the house is situated on 34 acres of private land.

Dimon worked as an assistant to the chairman of the executive committee, while Kent was a management trainee.
Dimon formed a separate company with colleague Sandy Weill in 1985. They eventually merged to form Citigroup. However, by 1998, the relationship had soured and Dimon was forced to resign.
In the biography “Last Man Standing,” author Duff McDonald wrote that Kent was far more upset about her husband’s firing than Dimon was at the time. She was quoted in the book, “Even though Jamie was at peace with himself, I was a raging maniac because of the way he’d been treated.”

Dimon left Citigroup in 1998 and joined Bank One in 2000. But he wasn’t short on cash in the meantime. Dimon made $110 million by selling his Citigroup shares in 1998, according to Business Insider.
On their 15th wedding anniversary that year, Dimon gave wife Judith Kent a financial gift. “You deserve this; it’s yours,” he said as he handed her a stock certificate worth “a full third of his net worth.”
Author Duff McDonald wrote of this exchange in “Last Man Standing” with favorable language: “Whereas many of her friends still needed to go through their spouses to buy or do something, Judy Dimon was now free to do as she pleased. Long used to treating his wife as an equal, Dimon had (nearly) made her his financial equal as well.”
