Jane Stoddard Williams Short Bio

Unfortunately, Jane Stoddard Williams hasn’t shared any information about her birthday, presumably in the early 1960s, thus we don’t know her exact age or her zodiac sign, but we do know that she is American by birth.

Stoddard is best known as the wife of Brian Williams and mother of his two children. Just like her husband, Jane is a journalist and a broadcaster. Reportedly, her net worth is over $1 million as of late 2019, while her husband has a salary of $13 million and his estimated net worth is $40 million.

She is the daughter of Hudson Gillan Stoddard, who was a vice president of Channel 13, and Patricia Stoddard – the director of Champion International Corporation. Jane was a student of Duke University, where she attained a BA degree in political sciences. Her work includes being Panorama’s freelance producer, and being the host of Bloomberg EDU, a weekly radio program that focuses on education, a subject Stoddard is very passionate about. Jane isn’t active on any social media platfforms, which makes it harder for her supporters to keep in touch with her.

Relationship Status

As mentioned, Jane keeps a low-profile about some details, which includes her dating history – she hasn’t revealed the identity of any of her prior partners. She married Brian on 7 June 1986 at the First Presbyterian Church in New Canaan, Connecticut, where the couple resides today. They have two children together, a daughter named Allison and a son named Doug. Their daughter followed their footsteps into the entertainment world, and their son is also in the field of journalism, and works for New York sports channel Geico SportsNite.

Jane Stoddard and Brian Williams

Another interesting fact about their family is that Brian was named “Father of the Year” in 1996.

Husband Brian Williams Wiki

Born on 5 May 1959 under the Taurus sign, in Ridgewood, New Jersey USA, Brian Douglas Williams is best known as a journalist who works for NBC News. He is also recognized as the chief anchor on MSNBC, and the host of “The 11th Hour with Brian Williams”. He was raised in a Roman Catholic environment as his family is of Irish ancestry. Brian is the son on Gordon Lewis and Dorothy May Williams, and has four older siblings.

His family relocated a few times during his childhood, thus Brian attended schools in Elmira, New York and Middletown Township in New Jersey, where he matriculated from Mater Dei High School. Throughout his high school years, Brian became interested in firefighting, and volunteered for his town’s Fire Department. In addition, he served as an editorial editor for his school’s newspaper, and was invested in sports, through which he sadly suffered a nose injury, which left it crooked.

College and Career

Even though he was engaged with numerous activities in high school, his first professional job was being a busboy at Perkins Pancake House.

Having finished his high school education, Williams enrolled into Brookdale Community College, but transferred to The Catholic University of America and later on to George Washington University. However, the broadcaster didn’t graduate – instead, he was an intern with President Jimmy Carter’s administrations.However, he’s since admitted that leaving college was one of his great regrets.

Latter Career

Some of William’s first works included a broadcasting gig at KOAM-TV in Kansas, 1981.

He then worked for WTTG, covering Washington D.C. news, after which he worked for WCAU in Philadelphia, and in 1993 joined NBC News, which brought him fame among the wider audiences. As of 1996 he took a big step, becoming the anchor and managing editor for MSNBC’s “ The News with Brian Williams”. His most recent engagements on TV include projects such as “The Place for Politics 2016: MSNBC Election Night Coverage” and “The 11th Hour with Brian Williams”. Overall, he has had over hundred TV appearances.

Daughter Allison Williams

Jane’s daughter Allison was born on 13 April 1988, and is known as a singer and actress. She debuted in 2004 in a support role in “American Dreams”, and followed by working on “Will & Kate: Before Happily Ever After”, and “The League”. In 2012, Allison was cast to play Marnie Michaels, one of the main characters in “Girls”, broadcast on HBO, in the series which follows the lives of a group of friends in their 20s. As of 2013, she could be seen in “The Mindy Project”, and in 2017 had her most prominent project so far, starring in “Get Out”, an acclaimed horror movie that follows the story of a young African-American man who visits his girlfriend’s Caucasian family, having no idea about their real intentions.

Her most recent project, “A Series of Unfortunate Events”, began airing in 2018 but finished after one season.

Allison is married to Ricky Van Veen – they began dating in 2011, became engaged in 2014, and their wedding ceremony was held in the following year, in Saratoga, Wyoming and was officiated by Tom Hanks.
