Ashley Thompson Manning husband
Ashley Thompson is a businesswoman who is also famed for being Peyton Manning’s spouse. Ashley drew her first breath in Memphis, Tennessee, in the family of banker/realtor Bill Thompson and housewife Marsha Thompson. Her siblings’ names are Allison, Will and Leigh.
Having got a degree in finance and marketing at the University of Virginia, Thompson got engaged into real estate business. Together with her husband, she launched Peyback foundation, aspiring to help disadvantaged young people. She is also engaged into other charities along with organizing breast cancer awareness camps.
Ashley and Peyton Manning got acquainted in 1993 thanks to the girl’s parents’ neighbor, who considered these two to be a perfect couple. They tied knots on March 17, 2001, in Memphis. In 2011, the spouses were blessed with twins: daughter Mosley and son Marshall.
Ashley Thompson is Peyton’s main source of motivation. In 2011, when the athlete suffered a serious injury and considered quitting football, it was his loving spouse who told him not to give up and try playing again. As a result, Manning won a Superbowl with Denver Broncos.
Moreover, despite supporting her husband, Ashley tries to keep away from the limelight and rarely appears on public alongside him. The woman also states that she adores spending time with Peyton but never demands his attention, giving him a chance to concentrate on his career.
A curious fact: Thompson has been a co-owner of basketball team Memphis Grizzlies since 2012.
