Jean Currivan Trebek

Jean Currivan Trebek is an entrepreneur and blogger who is best known for being the wife of Alex Trebek, a Canadian-American game show host who died on November 8, 2020.


Jean Currivan Trebek was born on Sunday, September 8, 1963 (age 57 years, as of 2020), and she hails from Greenlawn, New York. She grew up on the East Coast, in a Catholic family on Long Island along with her siblings. Jeans brother, Chris Currivan, is one and a half years older than her, and he was born with Hydrocephalus, a medical condition in which extra fluid puts pressure on the brain, hence had some developmental delays. During her childhood days, Jean was a responsible child who looked after her brother. In an interview, she said,

We went to school together, and I promised my parents that I would watch out for him. Sometimes I would even leave my classroom to go check on him. I took care of my brother, and it felt like a gift rather than a burden. Other kids might have resented that responsibility. I thought it was a blessing.

She did her schooling at Harborfields High School in Greenlawn, and later, she attended Pepperdine University in Malibu, California. After completing her formal education, she pursued a part-time job as a bookkeeper, where she worked for Alex Trebeks friend. In an interview, she said,

Alex was my boss€™s buddy. He€™d come over every Saturday to play backgammon and have lunch. I knew that he was on some TV show, but he never said much about it and I didn€™t ask.
