Emily Trebek Mother
Her mother, Jean Currivan Trebek, is 26 years younger than her father. The two met at a party in the late 80s and hit it off straight away. Nonetheless, the striking age-gap hasn’t been a problem in their decades-long marriage. At the time of their wedding, Currivan was only 26 years old.
“I’m pretty satisfied with my life. But my wife Jean and I have been together almost 29 years, and I was thinking about President Bush when he died, and all the comments about his life about what a nice guy he is, and how he and his wife had been together 73 years. I thought, oh my gosh … if I’d just met Jean in my 20s we could have had a longer life together,” Trebek told People Magazine in January.
“I guess if I’d met her when I was in my 20s she wouldn’t have been born yet. But hey, 29 years is pretty good,” he added.
