This is the second marriage for the former Chicago Bulls player. He was previously married to Juanita Vanoy for 17 years before they split in 2006. The former spouses share three children: sons Jeffrey Michael, 24, and Marcus James, 22, and daughter Jasmine, 19. (via US Magazine)

Instead of wedding gifts, the couple requested that donations be made to the James R. Jordan Foundation. The wedding flowers were donated to the Jupiter Medical Center.
