Who is Elizabeth Secundy's ex-husband Joel? Delaware recruiting executive was appointed by Barack Obama
Hunter Biden turned out to be quite the Casanova as a scandal was unearthed from a rabbit hole of raunchy text messages uncovered recently by the Daily Mail. A series of messages between the American lawyer and Elizabeth Secundy, the older sister of Hallie Biden, Hunter's brother Beau Biden’s widowed wife, revealed that Secundy, who is married, rented a house with Hunter, referred to him as her “prince” and told him she loved him from as early as 2016. The information comes from files and emails recovered from Hunter's laptop — the contents of which became public last year after it was left at a Delaware computer shop and never collected.
Hunter and Hallie became a couple in 2016 after Beau died of brain cancer, and the unconventional relationship was first acknowledged publicly in March 2017, with Joe Biden issuing a statement giving his blessing to the couple. But the new revelations suggest his romantic relationship with his sister-in-law to be even more complicated and scandalous. Here's what to know about Elizabeth's estranged husband Joel.
Who is Elizabeth Secundy's husband Joel?
Joel D Secundy is an executive recruiter at the Wilmington, Delaware JPMorgan Chase & Co, according to his LinkedIn profile. He was earlier Vice President of Government Affairs at the Erie Management Group, a Principal at Gray Global Advisors, and a Deputy Assistant Secretary of the International Trade Administration at the Department of Commerce from 2009 to 2011. He was appointed by then-President Barack Obama.
Secundy, 51, is a finance graduate from the Columbia Business School. Elizabeth separated from Joel, her husband and father of her three children, in 2015 after 15 years of marriage. Their divorce was finalized three years later. The couple had a house in Nottingham Road, New Castle County, Wilmington, according to Blockhopper. The 2,700 sqft home was purchased in 2003 for $520,000. Joel currently lives in S Village Ln, Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania.
On September 8 in 2016, at the time he would have been dating Hallie, Hunter wrote to Secundy: "We should shower together by FT [FaceTime] every morning or night when we're up at 3- stress relief - I'll teach you how to masturbate." "Wow re-reading that I can see how Joel might have some doubts," he added.
