They have been happily married for more than 15 years and have children together named Piper Kilcher – Jane’s child from her previous marriage to Alaskan native Dicran Kassaouni, and Etienne Kilcher – Atz Lee’s child from his previous marriage to Nantia Krisintu. Rumors have floated around about Atz Lee being gay, but the couple has shunned all the rumors and is still happily married and going strong.
Jane is a valuable asset to the Kilcher family and homestead, as her knowledge of the seas from her years as a fisherwoman immediately proved extremely useful in the Kilcher Homestead.
