John Molner is a financier with extensive experience in the banking industry. He became famous after meeting the popular journalist, writer, and media mogul Katie Couric. The couple married in 2014, and in addition to their partnership on the home front, the couple also went into business together. They co-founded a media company and run an online cooking show together.
Who is John Molner and How Old is He?
John Molner was born on January 21, 1963, in Chicago, Illinois. His parents raised him together with his two brothers, who both lead a successful life like John.
John had his primary and high school education in the United States. From 1981 to 1985 he studied at Trinity College in Harford to earn his bachelor’s degree. He earned his MBA in 1990 from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business Executive Education.
After graduation, John began working with Brown Brothers Harriman, a private banking organization in New York. All of his work experience was in various roles (as head of Merger & Acquisition, Partner, and then Limited Partner & Senior Advisor). He finally retired in December 2014 after 25 years of service there. Despite his retirement, he continues to work for the Bank as a Senior Advisor.
John has been married twice and has 2 biological and 2 stepchildren. He met his current wife (Katie Couric) in 2011 and Katie admits that it was love at first sight for her. Despite the failure of John’s first marriage and the death of Katie’s first husband, the two are determined to make the best of their current life and save their marriage.’
After his retirement, John has been keeping himself busy by founding a broadcasting company with his wife in 2018. He is a co-founder of Katie Couric Media. John can also be seen with his wife in a cooking show called “Full Plate with Katie & John”. The show is filmed in their apartment and Katie reveals that cooking together is one of the things they love to do together but never had the time. Now they can do it together and share it with the audience.
As for his relationship with his current wife, John has handled things like a real champion. He has shown no signs of being intimidated by Katie’s wealth or her age difference (she is 6 years older than him).
Their relationship seems more about companionship and enjoying holidays, family time, and living together.
Katie once showed that John has really good core values – he is loyal, honorable, and has integrity. He is also really funny and makes her laugh. These are the things that make him endearing to her because she believes that one of the best ways to meet life’s challenges is a good sense of humor.
The couple is pretty crazy about each other and won’t stop sharing their memories on their various social media sites.
Family, Parents, and Children
John’s parents are Herbert and Paula Molner. He has two siblings – Tom Molner – who is now a lawyer and David Molner – who is a financier like John, but in the film.
John Molner married his first wife (Jane Franke Molner) when they were young. They had two children – Henry and Allie before their marriage broke up and ended in divorce.
They both continued their lives with John by dating financial colleague Jessica Hsu for a while before he fell in love with Katie Couric.
John met Katie, who is a widow, through a mutual friend in 2011 and they were together for two years before John made a romantic proposal on the beach in September 2013. Katie took her time with her consent because she did not want to ruin the good relationship between the two of them. The couple finally married on June 21, 2014, in an intimate ceremony at their Hamptons home in front of their close friends and family.
Through the marriage, John became a stepfather to Katie’s daughters from her first marriage (Ellinor and Caroline).
They all seem to have integrated into one big family, and the children were all present to see their parents taking their vows.
What is John Molner’s Net Worth?
John is a very meticulous financier who has been in finance for years. He must have made a number of good and wise investments, as he himself was wealthy before he met and married Katie. His net worth was estimated at $20 million.
