Who is Cecily Strong’s boyfriend Jack?
In the essay excerpts from her memoir shared with Vulture, Cecily explains that she met Jack at a Christmas party in 2019.
“I talk to the man with the mustache. He’s very cute. I have social anxiety, and I’m drunk and tired, so I have no idea what we talk about. He comes home with me,”
“The next morning I’m a little more shy. He is less shy. ‘Can I give you my number?’ he asks. I hand him the pink-flamingo pen my psychiatrist gave me that week. I find an old receipt, and he writes ‘Jack’ and his phone number on the back.”
She became ‘official’ with “Jack” on International Women’s Day 2020 after the pair went to watch the U.S. Women’s National Team play against Spain in the SheBelieves Cup.
The couple both live in New York City.
Cecily was left shattered when Jack contracted coronavirus.
She penned in th essay: “I’m upset with him for not understanding why I constantly need to know he’s okay.
“I’m upset with myself for needing to constantly know he’s okay. I’m upset with friends talking about missing their f***ing birthdays. What if Jack dies? What if I die?”
