Name: Jill Ellen Stein
Born: May 14, 1950
Occupation: Doctor, activist and politician
Jill Stein was born on May 14, 1950 in Chicago, Illinois. She is the daughter of Joseph Stein and Gladys Wool. Raised in a Reform Jewish Household, her family would regularly attend the city’s North Shore Congregation Israel, which is a Reform synagogue. Jill is now agnostic.
Jill studied anthropology, psychology and sociology at Harvard University and would graduate magna cum laude in 1973. Six years later, she would graduate from Harvard Medical School and then practice internal medicine at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Harvard Pilgrim Healthcare and the Simmons College Health Center for 25 years. Jill would also act as a medicine instructor at Harvard Medical School. She retired from medicine in 2006.
Jill is currently married to Richard Rohrer, a physician. They have two children: Ben and Noah. The family presently resides in Lexington, Massachusetts.
Jill finally made her way into politics after being an avid activist, even to this date. She became an elected member of the Lexington legislative body. She served two terms, but resigned during her second mandate in order to run for the governorship of Massachusetts. Running as the Green-Rainbow candidate, she finished third with 3.5 percent of the vote.
She attempted to run for the Massachusetts House of Representatives two years later, but lost with 21 percent of the vote. Jill tried to run for the Massachusetts governorship in 2010, but she only received one percent of the vote. This did not dissuade her as she ran for the White House in 2012 as the Green Party candidate. In total, Jill was only able to garner 0.4 percent of the vote.
Jill decided to run for the Oval Office again in the 2016 presidential election. She has marketed herself as the sane, safe and smart alternative to Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. Jill has regularly criticized both the Republican and Democratic Parties. She has called out Hillary for her corruption and Trump for her supposed fascist stances.
Some of her political positions: supports “democratizing” the Federal Reserve, supports a Green New Deal to create energy jobs, supports free tuition, opposes the current U.S. foreign policy, opposes the state of Israel, opposes Obamacare, supports vaccines but questions its safety and supports ending the war on whistleblowers, like Edward Snowden and Julian Assange.
Outside of politics, Jill is an accomplished musician. She has recorded and released folk-rock albums as part of the band Somebody’s Sister. Jill plays the conga and djembe drums as well as the guitar. They have four studio albums, which were released during the 1990s and 2000s: “Flashpoint,” “Green Sky,” “Circuits to the Sun” and “Somebody’s Sister.” The band has actually performed live concerts throughout Massachusetts.
We estimate that Jill Stein’s net worth is $5 million (2016).
So how much is $5 million really?
$5 million could help pay your staff members when you’re running for president of the United States. $5 million could also help pay for roughly 10 percent of the costs when you’re running for governor of a state.
