Whitey Bulger Parents: Who Are Father James Joseph Bulger And Mother Jane Veronica Bulger?
Whitey Bulger was born to parents James Joseph Bulger and Jane Veronica Bulger in Dorchester, Massachusetts.
His father, James, was a union laborer and also occasionally worked as a docker. Similarly, his mother, Veronica, was an Irish immigrant.
Other than Whitey, the two were also parents to five more children from their marriage. The couple and the children were left in extreme poverty after Bulger's father, Joseph, lost his arms in a work accident. Struggling financially, the family moved to the Mary Ellen McCormack Housing Project in 1938.
