After leaving college, Duell was hired at her first job as a police officer at the US Supreme Court in Washington, D.C. in 2006. She lived the next few years in the suburbs around Dulles Airport. She later worked for the Department of Homeland Security and as a US Federal Air Marshall.
Relationship with Owen Wilson
In 2009, Wilson was in Washington D.C. for filming James L. Brooks’ directorial venture ‘How Do You Know’ (2010). The movie also starred Reese Witherspoon, Jack Nicholson, and Paul Rudd and turned out to be a critical and commercial failure. It is quite possible that during this period, Wilson met Duell for the first time. It would explain Wilson’s mysterious visit to the city in the fall of 2010, a year after the filming for ‘How Do You Know’ wrapped.
Sometime in 2010, Duell became pregnant and gave birth to their son, Robert Ford Wilson in January 2011. However, the relationship ended about five months later, in June. According to an insider who spoke to National Enquirer, Wilson wanted the freedom to do whatever he wanted in his life with both his male and female friends while still being with Jade and their son. Jade, on the other hand, was not willing to go along with it. So ultimately, Wilson cheated on her. After the breakup, Jade took Robert and moved in with her parents in Long Island while Wilson remained in Santa Monica, California.
Wilson fathered his second son, Finn Lindqvist Wilson, with Caroline Lindqvist in January 2014. He is involved in the upbringing of both his sons. In December 2016, he was seen enjoying a bike ride with both Robert and Finn in Maui, Hawaii.
