A Look into Dan Short’s Family
Short is married to his beloved wife, Melissa Martel Short, whom he met in military grad school. The two are blessed with a son Zman Short.
The small family of three is very close-knitted, which we can witness through the social handle of Short’s wife. However, although Short is a renowned personality, he doesn’t have a social handle for his personal life updated. And only has a Twitter account to showcase his professional updates.
However, Melissa makes sure to give his followers little glimpses of their family moments through her Instagram handle.
Celebrating their nineteenth wedding anniversary, Melissa shared a post on December 12, 2018, where the couple was seen dining out in a restaurant with their friends. And the post was followed by several of their well-wishers sending them best wishes on their special day.
Short is a lucky man to have a wife who got his back both in personal and professional life. Her constant support and motivation might have also played a part in his professional success.
Moreover, Melissa and Short are often seen in business events together. For instance, Melissa’s Twitter post of Jan 31, 2019, suggests that the two attained the ACT Conference Awards together.
After several years together, the couple still shares an amazing bond and seem happy with their one and only son, Zman. On August 24, 2019, Melissa took to her ‘gram to wish her son on his sixteenth birthday and wrote,
Happy Sweet 16 to this smart, handsome young man. The only one who calls me Mom, he makes me smile and fills my heart with joy. So thankful God blessed us with him! Zman you are loved more than you'll ever know.
Now, the 17-year-old is already a graduate who graduated from Norfolk Christian School. And, the proud mother shared the graduation picture of Zman through her Instagram on June 6.
