John Mara was born the eldest of 11 children to Ann and Wellington Mara, and his ancestry includes Irish, German, French and Canadian. He grew up in the White Plains suburb of New York, and matriculated from Iona Preparatory High School in New Rochelle in 1972. Afterwards, John enrolled at Boston College from which he graduated in 1976 with Bachelor of Science degree cum laude in marketing. However, he continued his education and earned a law degree from Fordham University in 1979.
John Mara began his attorney career at the New York law firm Vedder, Price, Kaufman, Kammholz and Day, where he specialized in labor and employment law and litigation. In 1981 he transferred to Manhattan, to Shea & Gould, and stayed there until 1991. These attorney involvements provided the basis for his later impressive net worth.
John’s connection with the Giants reaches deep into the past – his grandfather Tim Mara founded the New York Giants in 1925. John’s father Wellington and uncle Jack inherited the team in 1959 and guided it for the next 45 years. Wellington Mara was one of the most respected and influential executives in the history of NFL. In 1991, John Mara abandoned his law career and linked-up with the family business – he joined the New York Giants serving as the General Counsel and subsequently as the Executive Vice-President and Chief Operating Officer. After the death of his father in 2005, John Mara became, alongside Steve Tisch, the co-owner of the team and the third generation of Maras to lead the Giants – he was also named the team’s CEO. This NFL involvement was and still is the main source of John Mara’s huge wealth.
Under the management of John Mara, the Giants have reached the playoff nine times, won five NFC East titles and two of the three Super Bowl that they have played in (2008 and 2012).
Apart from the Giants, John is also the chairman of the NFL Management Council Executive Committee. For the past 14 years, he has served on the NFL Competition Committee too, as well as the Health and Safety Committee and the league’s Committee on Workplace Diversity.
When it comes to his personal life, John Mara is married to Denise – they have a son and four daughters, and reside in New York.
Despite his dynamic and demanding career, John Mara is very active when it comes to charitable causes – he is a Board Member of Saint Vincent’s Hospital in Harrison, New York, and has also been involved with Boys Hope Girls Hope of New York, an organization that assists capable children-in-need to meet their full academic potential, through various opportunities in college education.
