Jared Fogle has a $4 million net worth. He is an American spokesperson and motivational speaker. Jared is best known as the main Subway spokesperson as well as a motivational speaker. Unfortunately, he is also well-known for his arrest on child pornography charges in 2015.
Jared was worth between $10 and $15 million at the height of his career and earned $2 million per year as a spokesman and motivational speaker. Following his arrest, he allegedly paid his ex-wife a divorce settlement of up to $7 million. He has likely lost millions more from legal defense costs and civil settlements.
How old is Jared Fogle?
Jared Fogle’s age is 44. Norman and Adrienne Fogle gave birth to him on December 1, 1977, in Indianapolis, Indiana. Fogle, along with his younger brother and sister, were raised in a Jewish home, and he celebrated his Bar Mitzvah during a trip to Israel before being confirmed by his Conservative-Reconstructionist synagogue.
In 1995, he graduated from North Central High School in Indianapolis. In 2000, Fogle attended Indiana University Bloomington before working briefly as a revenue management agent at American Trans Air.
Fogle rose to prominence in April 1999 with his dramatic weight loss story. Jared lost 245 pounds in a year, which he attributed to his own “Subway diet.” As a result, he became the company’s primary spokesperson. As a twenty-year-old junior at Indiana University in 1998, he stood 6′ 2′′ tall and weighed 425 pounds, making him morbidly obese. He was consuming around 10,000 calories per day at the time, which is the amount of calories recommended for five people.
His story began when he saw an advertisement for Subway subs with 6 grams of fat or less. He chose a nutritional brochure to help him create his own diet.
He altered his eating habits by consuming smaller portions of Subway sandwiches devoid of high-calorie condiments such as mayonnaise. He lost an incredible 245 pounds by following his own regimen and walking to class rather than taking the bus, and he continued to lose weight after that first year. Fogle’s weight-loss story was revealed thanks to a friend who was an editor at the Indiana Daily Student.
Subway’s national advertising agency eventually learned about Jared’s successful diet and offered to have him lead their national campaign in early 2000. Subway ran a regional television ad campaign as a test. The first commercial aired on January 1, 2000, and it introduced Fogle and his story with the disclaimer: “
Jared’s Subway diet, combined with a lot of walking, was effective. We are not claiming that this is appropriate for everyone. Before beginning any diet program, consult with your doctor.
However, it worked for Jared.” The initial test advertisements were successful, and Fogle began appearing in numerous TV commercials as well as sponsored in-store appearances across the country.
In 2002, Fogle was the subject of a “Southpark” episode titled “Jared Has Aides.” He has stated that, despite the episode’s “typically tasteless humor,” he was flattered to be the show’s subject.
In February 2008, a Subway campaign called Tour de Pants celebrated Fogle maintaining his incredible weight loss for a decade. As part of the campaign, Fogle retired his now-famous pair of 62 inch pants to a museum at the end of the advertising tour.
By 2013, Fogle had filmed over 300 commercials and was still appearing and giving speeches for the company. Subway attributed a third of its sales growth to Fogle, whose revenue tripled between 1998 and 2011.
Jared appeared on several television shows, including The Oprah Winfrey Show and Larry King Live. He was also an author and motivational speaker who travelled around the country about 200 days a year.
Fogle also founded the Jared Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness of childhood obesity through educational programs and tools offered to parents, schools, and community leaders.

Who is Jared Fogle married to?
From 2001 to 2007, Fogle was married to pediatric nurse Elizabeth Christie. In November 2009, he proposed to teacher Kathleen McLaughlin. They married in 2010 and have two children.

No. No, I didn’t understand any of it, to be honest. I mean you just — you float out of yourself because the FBI shouldn’t be in your house.”You know, he was home with the kids and I in one life, and he was out on the road in a different life, and he was able to keep those two very separate in a way that I couldn’t even fathom,” – Jared Fogle’s ex-wife upon finding about about her ex-husband child pornograhy crime
