Marina Squerciati Facts
- She was raised in New York and later on, she relocated to Chicago.
- In September 2019, court documents claimed that Marina was the daughter of the late Manhattan financier John R. Jakobson and that while the mogul had promised that she would be named in his will, there was no provision made for her. Supporting documents have indicated that Jakobson paid for Squerciati’s nanny, as well as her tuition fees for her education.
- Marina has stated that the price of her keeping quiet about her furtive father for most of her life was “extraordinary” with her losing the chance to bond with Jakobson and being denied to ever get to know her half-siblings.
- She has played the same character of Officer Kim Burgess in different TV shows including Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (2011 and 2015) and Chicago Justice (2017).
- She has more than 600k followers on Instagram, as of May 2020.
