The Grammy Nominated Comedian Jim Gaffigan Has Five Siblings

Both Jim Gaffigan and his wife, Jeannie, come from big families.

An acclaimed comedian, James Christopher Gaffigan, is married and has started his own family.

Jim Gaffigan tied the knot with his partner in life, love, and laughter, Jeannie Gaffigan, at St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral in 2003.

From their marriage, they have welcomed five kids, daughters Marre and Katie and sons Jack, Michael, and Patrick.

The Gaffigans appear to love a big family, and why wouldn’t they? Jim’s wife, Jeannie, comes from a family with nine children and Jim himself is one of the six children born to his parents.

Since both the Gaffigan couple grew up in a big family, they likely enjoy having more members in the house.

In this article, we will discover more about Jim’s five siblings. However, Jeannie’s eight siblings would demand a different article.

Key Takeaways

  • Jim Gaffigan is the youngest of six siblings.
  • One of his brothers played college football with him.

The Gaffigan Siblings Were Raised In Indiana

Jim was born as the youngest of six children to his banker father, Michael Ambrose Gaffigan, and charity worker mother, Marcia Mirian.

The family of eight members lived in the small town of Chesterton, Indiana.

Among the Gaffigans, Jim was the third funniest after his brothers Mitch and Joe.

Nonetheless, being the youngest member, the comedian always got love and affection from his elder siblings.

Jim Has Two Elder Sister

Jim’s sister Cathy, the eldest sibling, was like a second mother to her younger ones.

Growing up, she was responsible for caring for her brothers and sisters and ensuring all of them got to bed on time.

There is not much information available about the current whereabouts of Cathy. However, she was reported to be with her boyfriend in Mesa, Arizona, during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Similarly, Jim’s other sister, Pam, is married and lives with her wife, Linda, who works in the fashion industry.

He Has Three Brothers

Besides the two sisters, Jim has three elder brothers: Joe, Mike, and Mitch.

Although Mike does not have comedic timing as brilliant as his other three brothers, he has a good sense of humor.

In 2014, Jim shared a picture of his brother, Mike, who appeared in a T-shirt with the text “THIS GUY NEEDS GREEN BEER” at their family reunion.

This gives a little glimpse of the humorous side of the Gaffigan family.

Similarly, the stand-up comedian’s other brother, Mitch, worked as a banker. In the Jim Gaffigan Show, Mitch is shown to have ditched his banking job to try stand-up.

Moreover, let’s talk about Jim’s other elder brother, Joe. Like Jim, who played football, his brother, Joe, also played football as an offensive lineman at Georgetown.
