Jared Padalecki Early Life

On July 19, 1982, in San Antonio, Texas, Jared Padalecki was born Jared Tristan Padalecki. He was raised with his older brother Jeff and younger sister Megan by his mother (an English teacher) and father (a tax accountant).

When Jared was 12 years old, he started taking acting classes, and by the time he graduated from James Madison High School in 1998, he had won the national title in Duo Interpretation with classmate Chris Cardenas.

As a result of his victory in the 1999 Fox-produced “Claim to Fame” contest, he was invited to speak at the Teen Choice Awards and eventually connected with an agency.

Padalecki had planned to study engineering at the University of Texas but ultimately decided to pursue acting instead. Padalecki applied to the Presidential Scholars Program in 2000, even though he did not go to college.

Jared Padalecki Personal Life

After meeting actress Sandra McCoy on the set of “Cry Wolf,” Jared popped the question to her in January of 2008. By the end of the year, he was seeing Genevieve Cortese, his co-star on “Supernatural,” after announcing the end of his 4-year romance in June.

Padalecki popped the question to Cortese in October 2009 in front of their favorite picture at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, and the couple wed on February 27, 2010, in Sun Valley, Idaho, Cortese’s hometown. The couple’s children Thomas (born on March 19, 2012), Austin (born on December 22, 2013), and Odette (born on March 17, 2017) are all healthy and happy.

After opening a bar called Stereotype in Austin, Texas, in 2018, Padalecki was arrested for public intoxication and violence the following year after he allegedly slapped and punched several staff.

In March 2015, Jared collaborated with Represent.com for the Always Keep Fighting campaign, selling t-shirts to raise money for To Write Love On Her Arms, a nonprofit that supports people who are dealing with mental health issues like depression, suicidal ideation, self-injury, and addiction.

Padalecki and “Supernatural” co-star Jensen Ackles partnered up with Represent.com in April 2015, selling over 70,000 t-shirts with their likenesses.

The Pack Fund was established by Jared and Jensen in November 2015, and their donations have been distributed to Wounded Warriors, The Down Syndrome Connection, To Write Love On Her Arms, and other organizations in need.
