Who Is Joshua Kushner? Karlie Kloss’ New Fiancé & Jared Kushner’s Brother
He’s been an entrepreneur and venture capitalist since 2012. Kushner founded and became the managing partner of the investment firm Thrive Capital in 2009. In 2012, the year he began dating Kloss, he co-founded Oscar Health, a $2.7 billion healthcare startup. He’s also the son of real estate mogul Charles Kushner. Their family net worth is an estimated $1.8 billion, according to Forbes.
Kusher attended Harvard University for both his undergraduate and graduate studies in business. Before moving to Massachusetts, he was born and raised in New Jersey.
Though he is close to his brother Jared, who is the son-in-law and senior advisor to President Donald Trump, his spokesman said he’s a “lifelong Democrat” and didn’t vote for Trump in the presidential election. Kushner’s future bride has also said she voted for Hillary Clinton in the election, but refrains from publicly commenting on her political soon to be in-laws.
Kushner told Forbes last year, “It is no secret that liberal values have guided my life and that I have supported political leaders that share similar values. But neither political party has a monopoly on the truth or on constructive ideas for our country. It’s important to open-minded and learn from differing opinions.”
For the most part, these two have kept their relationship out of the spotlight aside from attending a few events including this year’s Met Gala and posting pictures on social media.
This year, Kushner attended both the Women’s March and the March for Our Lives event. However, he later said he was only “observing” the Women’s March.
According to Axios, Kushner donated $50,000 to March for Our Lives.
Reportedly, Kushner is very close to Ivanka Trump. He apparently refers to her as his sister, not his sister-in-law.
