Emily Compagno’s Net worth, Sources of Income.
The former Oakland Raider’s cheerleader Emily Compagno has enjoyed a prosperous career in several fields. Her career in law, for instance, laid the foundation for her net worth. During her time as a general legal aid for the SSA, it is reported that she earned $70,000 per year. When she was moved to GS-13, her salary was bumped up to just under $100K.

She is married to Peter Riley.
Emily is the wife of a dentist. Her husband is Peter Riley. So when did the two meet? To answer this, you have to go back all the way to when they were teenagers, and most likely in school. They were just passing acquaintances then.
Remarkably, fate put them in each other’s paths two decades later! They both happened to be walking along the sidewalks of Seattle when they ran into each other.
Emily and Peter Riley along well, despite the fact that they both supported different football teams!
It led to them eventually dating for a few years, after which, Peter decided to propose. A wedding followed soon after at a hotel in Valla Cimbrone, which is located in Italy. One thing you’ll be interested to know is that the couple did not have any guests in attendance.
Only the flowers scattered across the outdoor pavilion and a solo violinist bore witness to the breath-taking ceremony. Perhaps they were a little worried someone would raise their hand in objection when the minister posed ‘the’ question?
