Who is Karen Mullinax?: Facts About Jason Varitek's Ex-wife

Who is Karen Mullinax?

Karen Mullinax is famously known for being the ex-wife of former American professional baseball coach and player Jason Varitek. The pair got married on January 6, 1996, but after about 11 years, the couple filed for divorce on July 28, 2008. Their divorce is unjustified and unsupported by any formal justification.

According to some sources, the dissolution of Jason Varitek’s marriage to Karen Mullinax may have been caused by an affair he had with a reporter, Heidi Watney. This is just speculation at this point because neither party has verified this. Upon the conclusion of an 11-year marriage, the divorce was formalized on July 28, 2008.

Karen’s occupation is yet to be discovered, but according to LinkedIn, she is a realtor at Dorsey Alston Realtors. This might, however, be referring to someone else with a similar name as hers. Therefore, we can assume her occupation is unknown until verified by her.
