Margie Washichek is the ex-wife of famous late American singer Jimmy Buffett. And I know most of you are wondering, so let me tell you that the late Jimmy is not related to billionaire Warren Buffett. After splitting from Jimmy, Margie today leads her life away from the limelight.

After Margie Washichek, Jimmy Buffett's second marriage also almost ended. And he had no one to blame for that except himself. Jane Slagsvol left Jimmy because of his party habits for six years.

If you are a fan of Jimmy, then you must be aware of his partying habits. Buffett made a reputation for himself through his partying habits. 

And as expected, it didn't go well with Jane, especially after the arrival of their daughter as she was settling down with him and the kid. Jane wanted him to be a responsible father, which she saw no signs of, and left him.

As fate would have it, as these two were about to separate from each other officially, things worked out. And Jimmy and Jane continued with their marriage. It worked, as these two marriage journey has been going well for many years now with the addition of a few more kids into the family.

Jimmy's final words were to his dear sister, Lucy "Lulu" Buffett. The trailblazer told his sister Lulu two simple words, "Have fun." The Buffett family received many condolences from other big names in showbiz after Jimmy passed away.

Buffett's death became a headline around the world. However, given his family wants privacy, the reason for his death stays hidden. On September 1, 2023, Jimmy passed away peacefully in his sleep with his loved ones by his side.

The Ex-Husband of Margie Washichek Was A Narcissist

Jimmy Buffett is a narcissist. Or, at least, he used to be. He had a high opinion of himself and loved all the attention he got. This is not a speculation or a popular thing people say about Jimmy. Instead, the He Went to Paris singer has confessed it himself. 

Caroline Howe for DailyMail has quoted him saying:

Yes, I'm a confirmed narcissist because there was nobody back there who gave a s*** at the time. You were on your own, and you better be good.

Both Jimmy & Warren Buffett Did A DNA Test

At the beginning of this article, I said he isn't related to Warren Buffett. I wasn't just joking. They have done a 23andMe DNA test to determine whether they are related.

Many hoped they were related, but unfortunately, the result was not in their favor. Even if they aren't related, the two remain close friends and have known each other for many years. Jimmy addresses Warren as his uncle, and Warren calls him his cousin. 

What Is Margie Washichek's Education?

We know a bit about Margie Washichek's education thanks to her love life with Jimmy Buffett. She has known Jimmy since College. The woman studied at Spring Hill College. 

It is a private college in Alabama. It is unknown when she joined the institute and graduated. But she graduated from there with a degree in English. Unfortunately, information on her further education (if there is one) remains unknown.

Margie's Ex-Husband Almost Became A Drug Smuggler

There was a slight chance that Jimmy would quit making music, not be the owner of Margaritaville, and instead enter the scary world of drug smuggling.

The reason why he wanted to get into doing this was money. He was told that he would make more money doing that instead of making money. This was brought to light in Jimmy Buffett: A Good Life All The Way.

I think it was a good thing he didn't get into it. Otherwise, we would have missed out on some fantastic music that he produced. 

Jimmy was A Plane Crash Survivor

Jimmy had almost lost his life on the same day actress Natasha Liu Bordizzo was born. He was involved in a plane crash on August 25, 1994. He crashed his Grumman G-44, N1471N, and was lucky not to sustain any significant injuries.

The plane flew from Madaket Harbor in Massachusetts, and the Come Monday singer crashed the plane into the water. Upon inspection, it was found that there was nothing wrong with the plane itself. It looks like god had other plans for him that day.
