Elizabeth Boeheim, who is believed to have been born in 1985 and is now aged 37 years old, is the adopted daughter of Jim Boeheim, the American basketball coach, and his wife, Elaine Boeheim.
She has grown over the years to become a celebrity even though she prefers to keep certain details of her life away from the media, unlike her siblings. Regardless, Elizabeth has got a lot going on in and around her family and we have presented them below.
Elizabeth Boeheim was Born in 1985
Sometime in the year 1985, Elizabeth Boeheim was born and a week later, she got adopted by Jim Boeheim and his first wife, Elaine Boeheim. At this time, Elaine was childless and even though Jim would rather not adopt a child, she pressed it on him that they adopt one-week-old Elizabeth as their first child and he bulged.
Owing to how tender she was when she joined the Boeheim family, almost nothing is known about her biological parents; their names, what they do for a living, and whether or not they had other children. And also why they gave her up for adoption. Regardless of all these missing details, Elizabeth grew over the years with Jim and Elaine Boeheim as the only parents she knows.
Regarding her education, multiple reports have it that she first attended Jamesville-DeWitt Central School in New York where she graduated in 2013. She then proceeded to Colby College, formerly Waterville College; a 209 years old private liberal arts educational institution located in Waterville, Kennebec County, Maine, United States of America.
At Colby College, she earned her bachelor’s degree and would, later on, enroll at the University of Montana in Missoula, where she bagged her master’s degree in Literature.
She is one of Jim Boeheim’s Children – Meet Her 3 Siblings
Jim and Elaine Boeheim got married in the year 1976 and remained married till 1993 when they separated and finally got divorced in 1994. Prior to their divorce, however, the couple had adopted Elizabeth Boeheim as their first child. Elizabeth was 9 years old at the time of her parent’s divorce.
Following Jim’s divorce from Elaine, he married Julie Greene who he met at a Lexington Derby Day party in 1994. With Julie, Jim had three other children; Jimmy Boeheim and twins Buddy Boeheim and Jamie Boeheim.
Jimmy Boeheim is Her Immediate Younger Brother
Jimmy Boeheim is Elizabeth Boeheim’s immediate younger brother, who was born to her father by Julie Greene on the 4th of May 1998, as per reports we have. He is also Jim’s first biological child and first son as a parent.
As it is a tradition in the family, he plays basketball and aspires to become a professional in the future. Jimmy played forward for Cornell University’s Big Red men’s basketball team from 2017 to 2020. He later joined his father to play for Syracuse Orange Men’s basketball team at Syracuse University. From here, he hopes to find his way into the National Basketball Association.
Twins Buddy and Jamie Boeheim are the Youngest Children in the Family
The duo of Buddy (Jackson Thomas Buddy) and Jamie Boeheim were born on the 1st of November 1999 by Julie Greene in DeWitt, New York. As it is the tradition in the family, the twins also played basketball in their school days.
Buddy Boeheim currently plays as a shooting guard for the Detroit Pistons in the National Basketball Association and also with Moto City Cruise of the NBA G League in a two-way contract. Before going pro, he played B-ball in his high school Jamesville-DeWitt, Brewster Academy in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire, and of course Syracuse University from 2018 to 2022.
On the other hand, his twin sister Jamie Boeheim also attended Jamesville-DeWitt High School before she proceeded to the University of Rochester. In her freshman year, she played for her university’s B-ball team the Yellowjackets but decided to discontinue playing afterward. She later interned at Sandra Pomeroy Treatment Center and Crouse Health Bill which has raised speculations that she might be interested in pursuing a health-related career.
Jim Boeheim’s Daughter Started Off Her Career Away From Sports Unlike Her Siblings
Following the completion of her master’s program, Elizabeth secured a lecturing job at the University of Montana where she taught literature to students. She held on to this job for some time before she resigned from her teaching position.
Though it is not known what she does now, her decision not to have ventured into sports from the onset is in contrast with what is typical of the Boeheim family. Except for her, all her siblings and even her adopted all pursued careers in sports. But be that as it may, it is believed that she is finding fulfillment in any career she is currently pursuing.
Is Elizabeth Boeheim Married?
As of this writing, Elizabeth Boeheim is not married and has never been associated with anyone as her partner. Similarly, she has not been named in any relationship scandal. Similarly, she is also not known to have had any child/ren in the past or currently whether biological or adopted. It is hoped that in the course of time, she would make public what goes on in her relationship life or at least announce who she will be getting married to.
Unlike her siblings and indeed the rest of her family members, she would rather keep a low profile than have her face appear on the front cover of newspapers repeatedly. Her celebrity status is all thanks to her parents and how her father, step-mother, and siblings have remained in the spotlight many years after her mother divorced Jim. Be that as it may, it is not to be disputed that she is a popular Boeheimian and apparently will remain so for a long time to come.
