I wonder if his love partner Keith Jameson will be there? Would you like to know more about Matt Tivy’s personal, romantic life that includes being married to a woman named Jen? Allow me to tell you about that as well as tell you a thing or two about Tivy’s longtime boyfriend Keith Jameson.

Tivy’s first love was food and it came into his life at the age of ten when he begged his mom to teach him to cook his favorite meals, years passed and a then 15-year-old Matt Tivy was working as a restaurant, he didn’t waste a day after high school graduation to know where he should go then; the Culinary Institute of America was the perfect place.

More years passed, he worked as  a sous chef for a little French inn, then a private Chef in the Caribbean, then sous chef at Daniel Bound’s restaurant and for magnate Brian McNally’s Canal Bar.

Matt Tivy dated a few guy in high school they were more a one night thingy rather that a relationship, he felt ashamed about it and then came sexy Columbia  student Jen.

Jen Mahon was a blonde, vivacious gal and former high school track & field athlete that made him want to hide his sexual orientation.

Jen Mahon and Tivy got married in January, 1990 in Lenox, Mass., but as expected the marriage didn’t last, they had an amicable divorce, Jen remarried and had kids, Matt continues to be friends with Mahon, whose 4 kids adore Matt. Yikes!

After Tivy and Mahon’s divorce was finalized Matt then 34, dated a then 24-year-old attorney for some time, things didn’t work between them, so after their breakup Tivy got into running. But he still wanted to have a boyfriend, so after listening about  some friends who met their  partners through personal ads Tivy posted his.

The guy who responded was Keith Jameson a opera singer 6 years younger than him, they started dating in 2005. Now let’s read Keith Jameson’s biography!
