Jessica Olsson, Dirk Nowitzki
There is a contingent of people who don’t approve of the fact that Dirk Nowitzki (of “caucasian” descent) and Jessica Olsson (of African descent) are married, and that’s a shame in today’s world. Especially because if you look at the Nowitzki-Olsson family, you will see athletes littering both sides of the blood line. It is incredible, and one can only think Dirk and Jessica’s children will grow up to be sports stars one day.
• Dirk Nowitzki met Jessica Olsson in 2010 at a charity event in Dallas.
• Olsson was working for an art gallery when the two met
• Raised in Sweden to a Kenyan mother and Swedish father, Olsson has two brothers who play professional soccer.
