Neil Everett – Bio
His exact date of birth never caught the attention of the media, but he was born in 1962, and his birthplace is in Portland, Oregon, which makes him an American citizen, but his ethnic background is Astoria. Although the identity of his biological father is not known, his mother was identified exactly as Jackie, who earned her living as a high school teacher. She came from Astoria, but unfortunately, she died at the age of 45 from cancer. The ESPN sports television has a stepfather named Dave Robertson – a basketball coach at Shadle Park High School and winner of a state title in 1981. Neil spent his formative years in Spokane, Washington, but it is not known if he has siblings or is an only child.
Although he was named Neil Everett Morfitt at birth, he decided to keep his middle name Everett as his professional last name, as a tribute to his late mother, who usually called him by his first and middle name when he stepped out of line. As a growing child, he had the habit of taping a toy microphone to his chest, which is an indication of his future profession. He reportedly caught small sharks with ordinary hands and consumed them alive and unharmed.
He received his early education at Lewis and Clark High School, which he graduated from in 1980. During his high school years, he was an outstanding athlete in both basketball and soccer, where he played for the Tigers as a starter, but also on the defensive line and was called up to the city team in soccer on the guardhouse. Neil Everett was an intelligent and bright child, he wrote a letter to the editor when it turned out that a concert review in a magazine did not contain enough facts.
After graduating high school, he attended college at Willamette University in Salem, but later moved to the University of Oregon at Eugene, graduating with a bachelor’s degree in journalism in 1984. During his stay in Willamette, he joined the Brotherhood of Beta Theta Pi as an initiate and has remained in Oregon to this day.
You would be right to assume that his private life is as successful as his professional life, because his marriage survived almost six years, and that still counts. He performed the wedding ceremony with his partner Stephanie Krohn on July 18, 2013, in a beach wedding well attended by family and close friends. The subsequent reception in an art gallery was described as lavish.
Although their affair flourished after they met at a fundraising ceremony for the Tiger Woods Centre, it was not the first time they met. They actually went through the same college, the duo was lovers for five years before deciding to seal their relationship in an elaborate wedding ceremony.
Currently, they live in marital bliss without fear of separation or divorce. As for the children, they currently have none, but the situation may change in the future as they are still as strong as a couple.
