Juanita Vanoy Biography

Once upon a time, Juanita Vanoy (ex Jordan) was a successful model, a secretary for the American Bar Association, and an ex-wife of a basketball legend, Michael Jordan. Now she is just a celebrity.

Juanita Vanoy Age

Juanita Vanoy was born on June 13th, 1959. At the moment of writing this article, Juanita is 58 years old.

Juanita Vanoy Net Worth

Her salary has not been revealed anywhere and we are not even sure that she has any salary. Juanita Vanoy’s net worth (unofficially) stands somewhere around $168 million because of that settlement she got after ending the relationship with Michael Jordan. That is why Michael made a deal with his new wife. She made her sign an agreement in which she agrees to get a million dollars for each year she spends with him, if or when they divorce from each other.

Juanita Vanoy Partner and Family

Juanita was born and raised in the south of Chicago. There isn’t much to say about her family. We simply couldn’t find anything before she had started dating famous NBA star Michael Jordan.

Michael and Juanita met for the first time at a Chicago Bennigan’s restaurant in 1984. The common friend was the one who introduced the future couple. However, nothing happened there. They met for the second time at another party. It was organized by their common friend and his time they “hooked up” a few weeks after that.


Juanita Vanoy and Michael Jordan

Soon after, Juanita Vanoy and Michael Jordan started dating. Everything was going well for some time in spite of the age difference between them (Juanita was 4 years older). Nevertheless, on December 31, 1987, Michael proposed to Juanita. Unfortunately, the engagement was called off very soon after that. Nobody knows the real reason for that. And why would we know? Michael is someone who can’t stand any “trash talk” from anyone. Just look at some of his games! Or, you can listen to some of the few people who had the courage to “trash talk” Michael. That is perhaps the only reason why we don’t know much about his private life.

Juanita Vanoy and Michael Jordan Wedding

However, what we do know is that the couple started talking about their potential marriage a whole year after the cancellation of their previous engagement. Soon after that, the two of them married. The wedding ceremony took place on September 2, 1989. It was a so-called “shotgun wedding”. They married at the Little White Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas. Their first child, Jeffrey Michael Jordan was 10 months old at the time wedding took place. Unofficially, the main reason for the cancellation and the late “undercover” wedding was Michael’s lack of trust. He didn’t believe that the child was his, but in the end, he finally accepted to marry Juanita.

The two of them have three beautiful children. The first child, Jeffrey Michael Jordan was born on the 18th of November, 1988. The second child, Marcus James Jordan was born on December 24, 1990. And finally their only daughter, Jasmine Mickael Jordan was born on January 7, 1992.


Juanita Vanoy with her ex-husband and children

The couple almost got divorced in 2002 when Juanita filed for the divorce for the first time. We said, “almost” because she withdrew the divorce proposal. However, things didn’t go as expected.

The second time Juanita filed for the divorce was in 2006 and that was the final one. The reason was “irreconcilable differences”. They said that the decision was made out of mutual understanding.

Juanita Vanoy Relationship Status

Juanita is now single. She lives happily with her children and a settlement of $168 million. When you compare that and take the inflation into consideration, right now in 2017, that settlement is actually $200 million.


Juanita Vanoy’s Penthouse

Juanita Jordan (now Juanita Vanoy) didn’t get married after she left Michael. We don’t know if she dated anyone since she doesn’t have a social network account. However, we can have some short glimpses into her life through the social updates her daughter regularly posts on her social networks. Judging by the things we could and can see, Juanita is pretty happy right now.
