Meet Michael Jordan’s kids, including his sons and daughters, who are the future heirs to his empire, in our detailed article.
Michael Jordan’s Kids
Michael Jordan is the father of five children. Three of his kids are from his former marriage with Juanita Vanoy. Their names are Jeffrey, Marcus, and Jasmine. Michael and his first wife divorced in 2006. Later on, he married his second wife, Yvette Prieto, a model. Yvette is a Cuban-American.
The duo tied the knot 6 years later in 2013 after the first meeting in 2007 in a Miami nightclub. Their lavish wedding ceremony was held at Episcopal Church of Bethesda-by-the Sea and then had its reception at Bear Club in Florida. The wedding cost them a whopping $10 million. Though that just plays money for the former NBA player who has a net worth of $2.1 billion. Michael and his new wife were then blessed with identical twin girls named Victoria and Ysabel.
Jeffrey Jordan’s Married Life & Bio
Being born on 18th November 1988, Jeffrey Jordan is a Scorpio and currently 31 years of age in 2020. Initially, his mother had a hard time telling Michael about being pregnant with him. She even sought the help of an attorney to help her inform Michael of the news. Thankfully, the former NBA champion admitted paternity, and the two wedded in Las Vegas some months later. Their son had already been born at the time of their wedding, and he was there in attendance.
Jeffrey followed in his father’s footsteps and played basketball in high school at Loyola Academy. He also played the sport in college too. Jeffrey attended The University of Illinois, where he played for three seasons. He played in the position of walk-on. In 2010, he moved to the University of Florida and played for the Knights. However, he didn’t pursue the sport as a career and quit in 2012.
He instead went to work for his father’s Jordan brand as an innovation leader. He married the love of his life, Radina Aneva, in 2019. The couple lives in Portland.
Marcus James Jordan’s Bio
Marcus James Jordan was born on 24th December 1990. He is the middle child of Michael and his first wife, Juanita. Marcus is a Capricorn Zodiac. He is now 29 years of age in 2020. Marcus started playing basketball leisurely with his dad and brother when he was young. In an interview with Today, Marcus revealed that the games with his dad got so competitive.
On one such occasion, Marcus had to ring his mom and tell her that his dad was picking on him. Michael treated his kids just like he treated any other basketball player when he played with them. According to Marcus, everything had to be earned. He was a freshman in high school at the time of a hilarious phone call.
Marcus pursued the sport to college in the University of Central Florida. His brother joined him on the UCF basketball team later on. When playing in college, Marcus caused his University to get sued by Adidas. This happened because Marcus decided to wear Nike Air Jordans to a game instead of Adidas.
His college had to pay millions of dollars to Adidas for breach of contract. Marcus then later quit the sport in August 2012 despite being an outstanding player. He had scored 1,100 points for his team by the time he left. He graduated from college with a degree in hospitality management. Currently, Marcus runs his own online shop where he sells fashion wear based on the Jordan brand. His business is named Trophy Room.

Jasmine was born on 7th December 1992 and is the third child of Michael and Juanita. She is a Sagittarius Zodiac and 27 years old by age at the time of writing this article in 2020. Jasmine revealed to Today in an interview that she grew up oblivious of her dad’s fame. She said that her parents did their best to raise her and her brothers as normal as possible.
Consequently, she didn’t know how big her dad’s name was until she was about ten years old. She even said that even in her mid-teens, she was still discovering who her dad really was.
Jasmine didn’t play basketball in schools like her brothers and dad. However, her career would be based on sports. She attended Syracuse University, where she studied sports management. Jasmine joined the Nike Jordan brand as an executive and worked there alongside her brothers and dad.

However, being MJ’s daughters gives them a repertoire of their own.
