Who is Jack Matthew Lauer?

Jack Matthew ‘Matt’ Lauer was born in New York City, USA, on 26 June 2001 – his zodiac sign is Cancer, and he holds American nationality. He’s striving to become a popular guitarist, but for the moment he’s perhaps only known for being the son of Matthew Todd ‘Matt’ Lauer, a former TV news personality who spent many years working for NBC, and who was let go after having been accused of inappropriate sexual behavior.

Early life and education

Jack was raised in New York City alongside his sister Romy who was born on 2 October 2003, and their brother Thijs born on 28 November 2006, by their father, and their mother Annette Roque, who’s a famous Dutch model and equestrian.

Jack’s sister Romy wants to follow in her mother’s footsteps, and is already an avid horseback rider.

Jack became interested in playing the guitar when he was around five years old; his father often listened to music when at home, and he bought Jack his first guitar. Jack started watching tutorial videos on YouTube, and had already learned to play various songs by the time he enrolled at Boise High School in 2015. During his four years there, he was physically quite active, and played various sports, including soccer and football, while he started going to the gym at the age of 17.

He matriculated in 2019, and then enrolled at Dartmouth College, from which he should be graduating in 2023.


Jack’s career

Jack is hoping to become a successful guitarist, however, his parents are urging him to try out other things as well; he has completed an internship at NASA Ames Research Center.

Love life and girlfriend

Jack is highly secretive when it comes to his love life, and hasn’t spoken of any girls or boys whom he has perhaps been with. This is mostly why there are rumors circulating the internet, concerning both his sexual orientation, and current relationship status.

Some of Jack’s ‘fans’ believe that he’s gay, and that this is why he hasn’t spoken of the girls whom he might have dated; some have even claimed to have seen him kissing a male friend, but no evidence has been provided to support these claims, nor has Jack commented on this.

There are also some who think that he’s today dating a girl who can be seen featured in a picture which he hrecently uploaded onto his Instagram account, but this hasn’t been confirmed either.

As of December 2021, Jack seems to be single, hasn’t married and doesn’t have children.

Hobbies and other interests

Jack is a huge fan of animated movies, and a couple of his favorites are “Lilo & Stitch”, “How To Train Your Dragon” and “Megamind”. He also likes to watch Hollywood movies; his favorite actors are Vin Diesel, Jim Carrey and Robert Downey Jr, while some of his favorite films include the franchise “Fast and Furious”, “Bruce Almighty” and “Avengers: Endgame”.


Jack is physically highly active, and has four to five training sessions at the gym every week, thus his muscular body.

Summer is his favorite season, as he enjoys going yachting, swimming in the ocean and sun tanning at the beach. He still likes winter, and can both ski and snowboard.

Jack is into travelling, and his father’s wealth has made it possible for him to visit several US states, as well as a couple of European countries, including France and Switzerland.

Who is Matt Lauer?

Matthew Todd Lauer was born in New York City USA on 30 December 1957 – his zodiac sign is Capricorn, and he holds American nationality. He was raised alongside his sister April Lauer Stone, by their father Jay Robert Lauer who worked at a bicycle company, and their mother Marilyn Lauer who was the owner of a boutique.

Matt was physically quite active during his teenage years, but was still mostly interested in journalism.


Upon matriculating in 1975, he enrolled at Ohio University’s Scripps College of Communication, School of Media Arts and Studies, but quit after he started working at the TV station WOWK-TV as the producer of their noon newscast; he eventually returned to the same college, and graduated in 1997 when aged 39.

He became an on-air reporter in 1980, and hosted many shows in the ‘80s, such as “PM Magazine”, “Made in New York” and “Fame, Fortune and Romance”. He began working at the TV station WWOR-TV in September 1989, and Matt hosted their show “9 Broadcast Plaza”.

He gained recognition in 1992, when he joined NBC as a co-anchor of their show “Today in New York”; he went on to co-host many of their shows, including “Live at Five”, “The Today Show” and “Weekend Today”.

Between 1998 and 2011, Matt travelled around the world, and had his own segment “Where in the World is Matt Lauer?” in the NBC’s “Today Show”; he reported from numerous cities all around the world, each time from one of the most important city places.

It was revealed by NBC News on 29 November 2017 that Matt’s contract with them had been terminated, because a female employee had accused him of sexual assault, claiming that he had been molesting her since the 2014 Winter Olympics, in Sochi, Russia.


It has been said that Matt forced the girl to have anal sex with him in his hotel room, and that she later occasionally had sex with him without wanting to, but agreeing because she was afraid for her career. Since 2017, two other women have come fourth and claimed that Matt had sexually abused them.

This also influenced Jack’s marriage, as his wife officially divorced him on 7 September 2019; the two had separated two years earlier, around a week after he was accused of sexual harassment. For around half a year now, Matt has been in a relationship with Shamin Abas, a businesswoman who is the CEO of her own marketing company.
