Roger Mathews is the husband and baby daddy to Jenni ‘JWoww’ Farley. Roger is ten years older than JWoww and the two met while JWoww was filming the reality show Jersey Shore. Unlike JWoww, Roger is not from New Jersey, though he lives there now. He’s actually from Maine and enjoys the outdoors. On Snooki and JWoww in past seasons, we’ve seen Roger take JWoww up to the rustic life of Maine, where his family lives. JWoww actually sucked it up and got down and dirty with her man. Read on for all the facts on Roger’s career, his ups and downs with JWoww, and their beautiful daughter.
1. His Job Is a Hazmat Truck Driver
Roger makes a good living and actually has a net worth of $2 million. He works as a teamster for Hazmat tankers, a union truck driver.
2. Roger and JWoww Announced They Were Pregnant Via Twitter

3. JWoww And Roger Appeared on Marriage Bootcamp: Reality Stars Together
Shout out to my ass of a husband @rogermathewsnj for holding down the house while I travel for @jerseyshore and all the other crazy jobs I have ♥️ we have the same high standards, temperament and alpha traits that cause massive migraines and point proving fights… even when it’s not easy, we always find a way to respect and love each other for our differences. May not be perfect, but what couple is 🤷🏽♀️
JWoww and Roger have had several problems in their relationship over the years. One issue is sex. Roger always wants to have sex, but JWoww wants more intimacy. Roger also has a problem with JWoww always taking on these projects that put the two of them in the spotlight and he feels she’s often fake. The couple decided to appear on Marriage Bootcamp: Reality Stars and Roger almost left the show because he felt that JWoww wasn’t really opening up.
4. Viewers Got to See the Birth of Roger And JWoww’s Baby on the Final Season of Snooki And JWoww
For the final season of Snooki And JWoww, we got to see JWoww as she’s pregnant with her first child as well as giving birth to her little girl. Here are a couple adorable pics of Roger and JWoww’s daughter.
The couple now has two children.
5. Roger Proposed After Skydiving With JWoww
On an episode of Snooki And JWoww, Roger arranged a skydiving trip with his girlfriend, but what she didn’t know was that he was going to propose. The proposal was very unexpected because, just before, Roger planned a fake-out date that made JWoww think he was going to pop the question but didn’t. Roger was always a prankster, so he thought this was a good idea. He had a pink limo pick the two of them up for dinner and at the end of it all, JWoww was disappointed that there was no ring and Roger felt bad.
Roger bought JWoww an amazing pink diamond engagement ring and when she jumped out of an airplane, he was waiting on the ground with the ring and a picnic.
