James Holzhauer's Wife Melissa Sassin Was on 'Who Wants to Be a Millionaire'

Before he was a star on “ Jeopardy ,” Melissa was a contestant on “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire.” The couple was then living in Seattle, Washington, and during that game show appearance, it was James Holzhauer who was in the crowd rooting on his wife.

She spent three months in Thailand as a volunteer kindergarten teacher at Language Corps Asia in 2011, and was then an Americorps Youth Development Leader for the Seattle Parks and Recreation department in 2012.

My experiences range from training adult volunteers how to safely remove lead paint to teaching kindergarten in Thailand.

“I am passionate about translation because I believe that language, spoken or written, is a conduit for understanding and that words can bring people together, even though sometimes it takes a few tries to find the right ones!

James Holzhauer has been giving shoutouts to family members with his Daily Double and Final Jeopardy wagers, using numbers that represent important dates, like birthdays and anniversaries.

“As for the shout-outs, family will always be more important to me than money or winning on ‘Jeopardy,’ and the bets were a fun and unconventional way for me to show them that,” Holzhauer told The Naperville Sun.
