Jim Cramer is one of the most recognized faces on American Television. A hedge fund manager, Cramer rose to fame following his appearances in numerous TV shows under the CNBC umbrella. An expert on everything related to money, Cramer has established himself as an authority in the world of stocks and finance. From controversies to best-selling books, Cramer has done it all. And there are a few details in Cramer’s professional life that have not yet been documented, his personal life remains unknown at large. Following a failed marriage, Cramer tied the knot with Lisa Cadette-Detwiler, who is a real estate agent. But for all of Cramer’s fame, very little is known about Lisa. In this article, we will take a closer look at the wiki-bio of Lisa Cadette.
Lisa Cadette was born in 1965, in New York City. Born to Joan B. and Walter M. Cadette, Lisa comes from an affluent family. Her father worked for J.P. Morgan and was stationed in Manhattan, while her mother taught English at the Dominican Commercial High School in Jamaica, Queens. Following her graduation from a local high school, Lisa enrolled at Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut, and graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Biology, with a specialization in genetics.
After graduating from University, Lisa began working at a small start-up entitled, Phoenix. The company focused on dermatology and was quite successful. After a few years at Phoenix, Lisa took up an offer at Corcoran Group Real Estate located in Brooklyn heights. Since then, Lisa has been working as a real estate agent and has gathered over 15 years of experience.
Meeting Jim and getting married:
Lisa and Jim met in 2006 when they were introduced by a mutual friend. During that time, both Lisa and Jim were taking time off from the dating game due to their divorce. Even though Lisa balked at the idea of meeting Jim, due to his reputation, she begrudgingly accepted the proposal after her friend reminded her that she had been single for too long. Talking about their first date, Lisa revealed,
“We were both separated with children and in the process of getting a divorce and trying to start over in our lives. So the deal was that we would meet for a drink, and if he liked me, he would ask me out for a burger later that evening. And if I liked him, I would have to accept that offer.”
Even though Lisa was skeptical of meeting Cramer, the pair hit it off from the first date. The initial doubt Lisa felt at meeting Jim evaporated into the air and the pair started sharing life experiences. Impressed by his knowledge and experience of varied things, Lisa revealed that she thought she would never see Jim again.
“I figured that Jim, because of who he is and what he does, is meeting incredible women all the time.”
But the pair went on a second date soon after and tied the knot on April 18, 2015, in Brooklyn, New York. Alongside her work as a real estate broker, Lisa is also the general manager of The Longshoreman, a Brooklyn-based Italian bistro/restaurant.
In five years of togetherness as a married couple, Lisa and Jim have no children of their own. However, they share a divorce in common and have children from past marriages. While Lisa has three children from her ex-husband, Jim has two Cece Cramer and Emma Cramer from his ex, Karen Backfisch (m.1988-2009). Since Lisa does not share about her past husband it is hard to find any details about the man.
