Life and CareerEdit
Paul was born and raised in North Carolina. She graduated from Mount Tabor High School in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Paul attended Wake Forest University and it was there, during a basketball game that she met her soon to be husband. She initially was a stay-at-home mother when they have children.
A few high school girls from North Carolina will be attending their prom in style, thanks to Jada Crawley-Paul. The wife of Los Angeles ‘Clippers’ player Chris Paul recently hosted a dress giveaway in which she paid for the formal gowns of fifty girls who will be attending their senior prom in May. The young ladies had the opportunity to shop alongside Jada, and select the gown that was right for them. The experience was more than a giveaway as Mrs. Paul interacted with the recipients and shared her expertise on style and etiquette with them. Jada and her husband have given back to society in a number of ways since establishing their foundation in 2005. Chris formed the non-profit in honor of his grandfather, and partnered with The Winston-Salem Foundation in hopes of nurturing the community in which he was reared. The NBA star has since established a scholarship through his foundation that, every year, gives one underprivileged high school student from Forsyth County the opportunity to attend Wake Forest University.
Personal Life Edit
On September 10, 2011, she married Chris Paul in Charlotte, North Carolina. Together they have two children, Christopher Emmanuel Paul, Jr. (born May 23, 2009) and Camryn Alexis Paul (born August 16, 2012). The family resides in a Mediterranean-style mansion in Bel Air, which Paul bought from Avril Lavigne for $8.5 million in 2012.
