Like most couples featured on Alaska: The Last Frontier, Atz Lee Kilcher, and Jane Kilcher are hardworking, committed, and like their privacy. The original cast member of the series, the two are adored by their fans. In this article, we will take a closer look at the life of Atz and Jane Kilcher and their relationships.
A bit of Atz Lee Kilcher:
Atz Lee Kilcher was born to Atz Kilcher and Lenedra Carrol. The third child, Atz Lee often felt like the black sheep of the family. His oldest brother Shane later moved back to the homestead, while his sister Jewel is a country star. After spending his childhood in Alaska, Atz Lee decided to tour across the country searching for something big. Over the years, Atz roamed the country with his trusted guitar by his side. As the years rolled down, Atz Lee felt the familiar tug of home and made the journey back to the homestead.
Jane Kilcher grew up in Anchorage, Alaska until she moved to Homer, Alaska at the age of 12. Jane lived not far from the Kilcher Homestead where she met Atz Lee Kilcher. The childhood friendship between the two turned into much more as a grown adult. Atz Lee and Jane bonded over their love for music and later decided to get married. Her parents were fishermen and trained Jane in ways of fishing. As she often puts it, she spent much of her early life surrounded by “storms and men”. Talking about her education side of things, Jane did attend college as she went to the University of Texas in Austin. Jane is a registered nurse and worked in remote villages in Alaska.
A commercial fisherwoman by trade, Jane is the one who is left in charge of fishing. She is responsible for making sure the family gets enough fish to last them through the long winters. On the other hand, Atz Lee completely depends on hunting to make sure the family lasts through the long winters. While Atz understands the problem caused by not rearing animals, he would have it no other way. As a result, Atz has to spend some time before winter to get ready for the winter.
Divorce a piece:
Before finding solace in each other’s arms, both Atz Lee and Jane were married to someone else. Even though the pair rarely talk about their ex-marriages, both their children are from their previous relationships.
Back in the early 2000s, Atz Lee was married to Nantia Krisintu. Natina is an MPA graduate of the University of Alaska Anchorage who journeyed to Homer, Alaska in 1997. The pair gave birth to a baby boy, Etienne Kilcher on 12th May 2001. The pair separated soon after and Nantia journeyed to Chicago only to return back to Alaska. She pursued her master of education in public administration from the University of Alaska Anchorage. Shedding some more light on her, Nantia has a son named Jacob Krisintu from another relationship although the name of the father is yet to come out to the media. Other than this Nantia has kept everything about her relationship under a secret vault.
On the other hand, Jane was married to Dicran Kassouni and had a daughter, Piper Isolde Kassouni who was born on June 4, 2003. Jane and Dicran separated soon after and Jane got married to Atz Lee.
In 2016, Alaska the Last Frontier’s official Facebook page shared a post as the pair commemorate their ten years of marriage. The part where Jane and Atz Lee Kilcher renew their wedding vows was also shown in a special episode of the reality show “Alaska The Last Frontier.”
Jane and Atz Lee do not have biological children of their own. However, she has been careful to ease their children from ex-spouses in the television world. Jane opened up about why they did not on appear on television back in the day.
Rumors of Divorce:
While Jane prefers to keep away from social media, she once took to clarify the divorce rumors between herself and Atz Lee. This was around the same time when Atz had a horrible hiking accident. Jane took to Facebook to set the record straight and mention that a divorce was the farthest thing from her mind. As of now, the pair have been married for more than 15 years and love spending time together.
