Jason Alexander was born on September 23, 1959 in Newark, New Jersey. He is the son of Alexander B. Greenspan, an accounting manager, and Ruth Minnie, a nurse and healthcare administrator. He has two siblings: Michael Greenspan and Karen Van Horne.
Growing up in Livingston, New Jersey, he gradated Livingston High School in 1977. He would later attend Boston University, but quit just before his senior year so he could get work in New York City.
Since May of 1982, Jason has been married to Daena E. Title. The couple has two children, Gabriel and Noah. The family presently resides in the city of Newark.
Jason started his acting career in New York and landed numerous parts for his accomplished singing and dancing talents. He has starred in various broadway shows, including “The Rink,” “Merrily We Roll Along,” “Broadway Bound, Accomplice and “Jerome Robbins’ Broadway.” He would go on to win a Tony Award in 1989 for Best Featured Actor in a Musical.
Jason began to receive work in television and film. In 1987, he starred in the hit film “Pretty Woman,” “Shallow Hall,” “Jacob’s Ladder” and the short-lived television series “Everything’s Relative.” In addition, Jason performed voiceover work for “Duckman,” “Dilbert,” “The Hunchback of Notre Dame” and “House of Mouse.”
Of course, Jason would gain national prominence when he landed the part of George Costanza in the internationally acclaimed blockbuster television series hit “Seinfeld.” He was nominated for six Primetime Emmy Awards and four Golden Globe Awards as well as a Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Comedy Series.
Since the end of “Seinfeld,” Jason has earned parts in various motion pictures and TV shows, including “The Man Who Saved Christmas,” “Star Trek: The Next Generation,” “Monk,” “Everybody Hates Chris” and “Criminal Minds.” He also returned to the stage to act and direct.
Outside of show business, Jason has delved into poker, magic, music and political activism.
We estimate that Jason Alexander’s net worth is $50 million (2015).
So how much is $50 million really?
Although a huge part of the success behind “Seinfeld,” Jason’s $50 million net worth is far below that of Jerry Seinfeld’s $800 million and Julia Louis-Dreyfus’s $200 million. But it’s just a little more than Michael Richards’s $45 million.
$50 million can buy you the ability to produce several Broadway shows. $50 million could also buy you several “Seinfeld” apartments that are being constructed all over the world as well as “Monk’s Café” establishments that are also being built.
