Personal life

John Molner was born in Chicago to his Irish parents. He grew up with his two sisters and a half-brother. As a child, Molner was very active. He showed a lot of interest in sports and cultural activities from childhood. His father was a business person and his mother was a fashion designer. He belonged from a solvent family background and had never faced a hurdle in his path of education. He took great interest in football and basketball from early childhood. He learned to play football from his father who has been a great football coach in his early career.

Though he nailed football, his father never allowed him to join the football team at his school. His father thought that football would divert his attention from studies. Though Molner agreed to his father’s decision, he could not concentrate in studies. Noticing his continuous deterioration in studies, his mother convinced his father to allow him to play football.

Soon, after playing two or three football tournaments, he was chosen as the captain of the team. Leading to his interest towards sports, he has also attended some basketball tournaments. Though Molner loved sports, he never shifted his focus from his studies.

After graduating from the Trinity College, he went to the University of Chicago Booth School of Business to earn his master’s degree in business administration. Though his father wanted him to take care of the family business, he had other plans for future. Molner grew up to be a handsome young lad but he was hardly involved in any kind of relationship. He was always focused on his career until he met Katie Couric, his present wife.

As Molner belongs to a high-class society, he used to frequently attend parties and gatherings and he met Couric in a social gathering only. They began with their friendship as Couric was in a marital relationship with her first husband. After Couric’s divorce, they dated each other for several years and tied the knot. Both Couric and Molner had children from their previous marriage when they began their marital life.

The couple shares a very good understanding with each other and their past could not affect their present relationship. Though it was heard from some reports that Molner got involved in a relationship with one of his colleague but nothing could break the bond shared by Couric and Molner. Molner is now leading a happy marital life with his wife and children and there is still no news of discord between them.


John Molner is a renowned MBA student of the University of Chicago Booth School of Business. He began his career with the Brown Brothers Harriman which is also known as the oldest and as well as one of the largest private banks in the United States. He emerged out as a great professional in the corporate finance world. Though he took a retirement from the Brown Brothers Harriman, he serves the BBH Capital Partners as a senior advisor in finance when required.
