Jeffrey Lurie wife Tina Lai Lurie is a businesswoman running a restaurant chain in Philadelphia. Tina Lai is the second spouse of the Eagles owner.

Born on September 8, 1951, as Jeffrey Robert Lurie, he grew up in Boston, Massachusetts. He has a bachelor of arts/science degree from Clark University and a Doctorate from Brandies University.

The 71-year-old grew up a huge sports fan in Boston. Growing up, he supported all the major sports teams from Massachusetts. He was more involved, however, with the Red Sox in MLB and the Patriots in the NFL, as he used to go to games regularly.

He comes from a family with a rich history in entertainment and cinema. His grandfather Phillip Smith had founded a production company, General Cinema Corporation. Lurie joined the company in 1983, headed by his uncle then, after his studies.

With a wealth of $4.4 Billion, Forbes ranks him as the 241st richest man in its 400 wealthiest people in America list. He is also the 851st richest person on earth.

Being a massive fan of the game, he wanted to purchase a franchise many times and even came close to acquiring the Patriots in 1993 but later backed out. However, it wouldn't be long before he bought a team, and in 1994, he purchased the Philadelphia Eagles for $185 million. His team went on to win its first Super Bowl title by defeating the NE Patriots in the 2017 edition, prolonging Tom Brady's wait to win his eventual 6th ring.
