Congrats to #49ers QB Brock Purdy on marrying his longtime girlfriend Jenna Brandt today ❤️

Purdy and Brandt met in college at Iowa State in the late 2010s before she transferred to Northern Iowa, and both were student athletes as Purdy played football for the Cyclones and Brandt played volleyball for the Cyclones followed by the Panthers.

The couple maintained their relationships as Purdy moved on to the NFL as the final pick, known as Mr. Irrelevant, in the 2022 draft.

Despite his lowly draft stature, Purdy stepped up for the 49ers when the opportunity came in 2022 amid injuries for former Niners quarterbacks Trey Lance and Jimmy Garoppolo. Purdy went 5-0 and led the 49ers to the NFC Championship Game before a season-ending elbow injury.

After he returned and won the starting job for the 2023 season, his rising profile drew more attention to his personal life and his relationship with Brandt. The couple got engaged in July 2023, and Brandt handled most of the wedding planning as Purdy looked to lead the 49ers to a Super Bowl.

Amid the microscope on Purdy’s personal life, his former roommate, offensive lineman Nick Zakelj took the spotlight. Purdy lived a modest life on a minimum NFL salary, $889,252, as he split rent with Zakelj and drove a Toyota Sequoia during the season.

In addition, Purdy and Brandt have been quite public about their Christian faith and clearly waited until after the wedding to live together. Zakelj joked before the Super Bowl that he gave Purdy an eviction notice before March.

Following their post-wedding plans, Purdy plans to get back to training for the 2024 season and another run at the Super Bowl.
