Wendy Rush Husband
Wendy Rush was married to Stockton Rush. They got married in 1986 and the marriage produced two lovely children.
Rush was born into a prosperous family in San Francisco as the youngest of five children to Richard Stockton Rush, Jr. of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and Ellen Rush, née Davies. He was the grandson of Ralph K. Davies, and his lineage traces back to Benjamin Rush through his father. His father was also the son of an oil magnate.
Rush was part of an expedition onboard the Titan, a submarine owned by OceanGate, Inc., to explore the Titanic wreckage when the submarine lost communication with its surface support vessel, the MV Polar Prince, on June 18. International rescue efforts were launched with support from the United States, Canada, and France both by sea and air.
Tragically, on June 22, following the detection of a debris field roughly 490 meters (1,600 ft) away from the Titanic’s bow, OceanGate stated that it believed Rush and the other four passengers onboard the Titan had regrettably perished.
