Marissa Deegan has quite a racing family. Her husband, Brian Deegan, an American professional freestyle motocross rider and racing driver. Her daughter, Hailie Deegan, is an American professional stock car racing driver and competes full time at the ARCA Menards Series, and her two remaining sons, Haiden and Hudson, compete in youth motocross. With that much speed in the family, it is surprising that Marissa Deegan has never found herself behind the wheel. The matriarch of the Deegan household, Marissa has helped Brian climb through the ranks by making sure that she takes care of things on the family’s end. In this article, we will take a closer look at the wiki-bio of Marissa Deegan.
Marissa Deegan was born on the 29th of August, 1977, in Corona, California. Born and raised in Corona, Marissa is the only child of the family and spent most of her early life in the town. On the academic side of things, Marissa attended Centennial High School and took up dancing and acting simultaneously. However, Marissa soon realized that either of these fields was not her bread and butter and decided to forge another path for herself. Following her matriculation from Centennial in 1995, Marissa decided against going to college and started her career.
Not much is known about Marissa’s professional career. She has had a few acting credits over the years and that sums up everything that is known about her professional career. Her first appearance came in 2005 when she was cast on the documentary series Impact: Stories of Survival. She made the briefest of appearances in the episode, Tornado Survivor. Her second and final TV appearance came in 2006, in the documentary video, Disposable Hero: The Brian Deegan Story. The series revolved around the life of her husband and his struggles in proving himself as one of the best racers around. The documentary also focuses on Brian’s accident and his long road to recovery.
Marissa currently works alongside her husband, Brian, as the joint owner of Deegan Motorsports, which is located in Temecula, California.
Marissa first met Brian during her high school years and the pair began dating not long after Marissa’s matriculation. After eight years as a couple, the pair decided to take the next step and tied the knot in 2003. The pair had their first child, a daughter, Hailie Deegan who was born on 18 July 2001. Like her father, Hailie decided to pursue professional racing and is a recognized stock car racing driver. She currently races on the ARCA Menards Series and drives the No. 4 Ford Fusion for DGR-Crosley.
The pair’s first son Hudson Deegan was born on the 16th of March 2001 and was followed by his brother, Haiden, who was born a year later. Both Hudson and Haiden are professional youth motocross drivers. As of 2020, there have been no rumors of a potential split between the pair. The family of five lives in California. When not on the sidelines encouraging either one of her husband/ daughter/ or sons, Marissa can be found traveling across the states. She loves spending time in nature and provides regular updates to her fans on Instagram.
