Joe Maddon was born to the late Joe Maddon, Sr., the owner of a plumbing shop, and Albina, who worked as a waitress. Upon matriculation, he enrolled at Lafayette College, where he excelled not only in playing baseball, but also as a football player. He was a member of the Zeta Psi fraternity, and graduated in 1976. He was later honored with a Doctorate of Letters in 2010.

Prior to becoming a coach, Joe played baseball in the position of catcher in Minor League Baseball for the California Angels in 1975, and later for the Salinas Angles in 1977. He played baseball for four seasons, but as he didn’t reach more than Class A, he decided to quit his playing career and pursue a career as a coach in 1979. At the beginning, he worked as a scout, then in 1981 he became a manager, having a 279–339 record in six seasons. From 1987 to 1993, he moved on to the position of roving hitting instructor, after which Joe was promoted to the MLB as a coach, which added a considerable amount to his net worth.

He started as a coach of the California/Anaheim/Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, and stayed there until 2005, working as a bench coach, first base coach, and interim manager. He served there under such managers as John McNamara, Terry Collins, Marcel Lachemann, and Mike Scioscia. As an interim manager, he finished with 27 wins and 24 losses, and as a bench coach (2000-2005), he won his first World Series Championship in 2002, potentially increasing further his net worth.

In 2006, Joe was hired as a manager by the Tampa Bay Devil Rays, which contributed a lot to his net worth. During his time with the team, they won their first American League Eastern Division Title in 2008, defeating the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees, which earned him the Chuck Tanner Major League Baseball Manager of the Year Award, as well as the American League Manager of the Year Award, which he won once again in 2011. In the following year, his contract was extended, and in 2013 the game against the Toronto Blue Jays became his 600th victory game in his career as a manager, and a year later he notched up his 700th. In 2014, he finished his tenure with 754 wins and 705 losses.

Right after that, Joe began to work in the position of manager of the Chicago Cubs, signing a contract which increased his net worth by a large margin. In 2014, the victory over the New York Mets was his 800th win, after which the team didn’t have any major success until the National League Wild Card Game, when they advanced to the National League Division Series (NLDS), defeating the St. Louis Cardinals. After the season, Joe won the National League Manager of the Year Award. In 2016, he and the Cubs won the World Series Championship, their first World Series title after 108 years.

When it comes to his personal life, Joe Maddon has been married to Jaye Sousoures since 2008. Previously, he was married to Betty Maddon, with whom he has two children and five grandchildren.
