The Trumps aren’t the only ones in their family who are major successes in business and real estate. Ivanka Trump’s husband is hugely accomplished and has a net worth estimated at 200 million. He is a graduate of Harvard University as well as NYU. Get all the details on Kushner below, focusing on how he has amassed such a large amount of wealth.
1. Trump’s Husband Is the Son of Real Estate Mogul Charles Kushner
Jared Kushner is a real estate investor who followed in the footsteps of his father Charles, whose company was Kushner Properties. In 2008, Kushner took over the role of CEO for Kushner Properties because his father Charles was convicted of tax evasion, illegal campaign donations and witness tampering. Chris Christie actually aided in putting Charles Kushner in jail. Charles Kushner served two years in prison, according to the NY Times.
2. At Age 26 Kushner Made the Most Expensive Building Property Purchase in Our Nation’s History
In his late twenties, Kushner spent billions of dollars on real estate in New York, according to the NY Times. When he was 26 years old he actually set a record, buying the most expensive single-building property in our nation’s history.
3. Kushner Is Donald Trump’s De Facto Campaign Manager
Kushner is currently a campaign manager for father-in-law Donald Trump’s Republican presidential campaign. According to Politico, Kushner, along with Trump’s other children, stepped in and pushed out Corey Lewandowski and his “Let Trump be Trump” approach to the Trump campaign.
Prior to marrying wife Ivanka Trump, Kushner was a big supporter of the Democratic party, having contributed over $100,000 to several campaigns.
4. He Is the Owner of the New York Observer
In 2006, when Kushner was just 25 years old, he purchased the New York Observer and re-focused its vision. According to the NY Times, Kushner spent roughly $10 million on a majority stake in the paper. He has since increased its presence online, readership and distribution.
