Professional Career:

Much of what’s known of Stacey’s career is intertwined with Henry’s life and his status as a superstar. Following her graduation from the University of North California, Stacey opened her private fashion PR firm. Stacey found success in her early years and worked with reputed clients including Van Cleef & Arpels and Jag. Stacey met Winkler at the same time her career started gathering force. Eventually, Stacey stopped her PR practices and accompanied her husband. While she has had a couple of stints as an actress, in the 2001 movie, As Told by Ginger, and the 2005 drama, Touch, nothing came out of it. Stacey is also the founding member of the Children’s Action Network, which provides free immunization to 175,000 children and is running a national adoption campaign.

First marriage:

While Stacey has been known exclusively for her marriage to Henry Winkler, it is also true that she had been married before meeting Winkler. Stacey met her first husband, entertainment lawyer Howard Weitzman in 1968. The pair began dating and tied the knot on the 19th of October, 1969. While the pair didn’t have much time together, they had a son, Jed Weitzman, who was born in 1971. While the pair eventually divorced in 1976, not much is known about the reasons. Howard ended up marrying Margaret in 1981. 

Marriage to Henry:

Stacey didn’t remain single for a long time after her divorce from Howard. She met Winkler in 1976 at Jerry Magnin’s clothing shop in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles. The store belonged to one of her public relations clients, and Winkler came in looking for a sports coat. The pair had a brief conversation during their first visit and when he came back to pick up the coat a week later, Stacey was still in the shop. The pair went out for drinks and began dating soon after. While the pair never officially revealed that they were dating, Winkler once hinted to the media about Stacey as “someone who is intellectual enough to have her own life, and open enough to be in love with me.”

Within 5-months of dating, Stacey moved in with Winkler alongside her son Jed, and her two Yorkies, Amanda and Percy. The pair dated for two years before tying the knot on May 5, 1978, in the Manhattan synagogue. In the years of marriage, the pair has given birth to two children. Their daughter Zoe Winkler was born in 1980 followed by Max Daniel Winkler born on August 18, 1983. 


In 2001, Stacey was diagnosed with breast cancer. She was rushed to the hospital and the doctor advised a lumpectomy and intensive chemotherapy and removed one of her breasts. However, the cancer came back and Stacey had to undergo a double mastectomy. She has been cancer-free since and is committed to raising awareness against breast cancer.
