After ten seasons on the hit series "Chicago P.D.," actor Jesse Lee Soffer has announced his departure. Since the show's debut on NBC in 2014, the actor has played Detective Jay Halstead in all 187 episodes. He is set to leave in the fall.
Soffer, born on April 23, 1984, began his acting career at the age of eight. Given his extensive work in films and television, the dashing actor's romantic life has frequently been questioned.

Soffer, who hails from Ossini, New York, has a history of dating well-known women, particularly with whom he has worked on television projects. The most notable actresses he dated were Sophia Bush and Torrey DeVitto.

The source also stated that Soffer and Bush were very sweet on set and looked adorable. Although the couple kept their romance covered up, only their close friends were aware of it, according to the source.
The relationship between Bush and Soffer did not last long, and the two called quits in 2015. Nonetheless, they parted ways on good terms, seemingly due to a simple case of growing apart.
Soffer has made headlines yet again for allegedly dating another "Chicago P.D." co-star besides Bush.
Before dating Soffer, Bush was married to actor Chad Michael Murray. Bush is now engaged to Grant Hughes. As Nicki Swift reported, she said in an interview with Chicago Sun-Times' Splash magazine through US Weekly she has no regrets about her previous relationships. She said:
"I've dated a couple of the wrong guys, but I've also had great love in my life."
After his relationship with Bush ended, Soffer began dating the actress Torrey DeVitto, best recognized for her character as Dr. Natalie Manning in the television medical drama "Chicago Med." Soffer confirmed their relationship in 2018.

Soffer went on to say that their relationship was "great." Another close friend of the couple noted that they "complement each other beautifully." However, after eight months of dating, DeVitto and Soffer ended their relationship.
According to a source, both actors remain friends despite the breakup. The former couple used to go on vacations together and post photos from their adventures on Instagram. One of their memorable trips took them to Scotland. The images have since been deleted from DeVitto's account.
Is Jesse Lee Soffer Dating Anyone Now? Does He Have a Wife?
Soffer has made headlines yet again for allegedly dating another "Chicago P.D." co-star besides Bush. Aside from making headlines for his decision to leave the popular series, he was reportedly linked to his cast member, actress Tracy Spiridakos.
Spiridakos portrays detective Hailey Upton, Soffer's on-screen wife. The pair shared several dramatic and intimate scenes in the show, demonstrating how intense their chemistry was. Off-screen, both were friendly and could make each other laugh.
With the duo's undeniable chemistry on and off the screen and frequent appearances on each other's social media accounts, fans were convinced that Soffer dated Spiridakos.
However, the fans' assumptions were correct, as the rumored couple appeared to be in a platonic relationship. In a 2019 interview, Spiridakos gushed about her co-stars being "genuinely good friends."
