Jami was born and raised in Chicago in a Conservative Judaic household, and was educated at Maine East High School. As a child actress she landed several minor roles, and made her debut in Franco Zeffirelli’s film “Endless Love” (1981). The film was a debut for many actors featured in this romantic drama, including Tom Cruise, James Spader, Jeff Marcus and, of course, Jami Gertz.

Subsequently Jami appeared as the lead actress in many feature films released from 1985 to 1995, such as the drama film “Quicksilver” (1986) directed by Thomas  , the horror film “The Lost Boys” (1987) directed by Joel Schumacher, the drama film “Zwei Frauen” (1989) directed by Carl Schenkel, the comedy film “Don’t Tell Her It’s Me” (1990) directed by Malcolm Mowbray, the comedy drama film “Jersey Girl” (1992) directed by David Burton Morris and others.

However, in 1996, she was nominated for the Golden Raspberry Award as the Worst Supporting Actress in the film “Twister” (1996) directed by Jan de Bont. Afterwards the actress appeared only in a few feature films, including “Seven Girlfriends” (1999), “Lip Service” (2001), “Keeping Up with the Steins” (2006) and “Dealin’ with Idiots” (2013). Still, all her roles landed on the big screen added sums to the total size of Jami Gertz’s net worth.

Concerning her career on television, Jami Gertz has often been invited to be a guest or cameo star. Thus Getz appeared in the television series “The Facts of Life” (1983–1984), “ER” (1997), “Ally McBeal” (2000–2002) and others. It should be noted that for the latter she was nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award as the Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series. More, she landed the leading roles in the sitcom “Still Standing” (2002–2006) created by Diane Burroughs and Joey Gutierrez as well as in the science fiction sitcom “The Neighbors” (2012–2014) created by Dan Fogelman. Her works on television have increased the net worth of Gertz, too.

In her personal life, in 1988 Jami Gertz married the businessman Antony Ressler. The family has three sons, and reside permanently in Beverly Park community, and own a holiday mansion in Malibu, California.

#Quote
1I'm at a time in my life where I'm so filled up that I don't want more.
2[in a 1987 interview] Most of the parts I've played have been passive girls who are just sort of there. I have trouble with that because I'm not like that and being passive gets you in big trouble personally. It's not the kind of quality that young girls should be looking up to.
