10 Things You Didn’t Know About Jeffrey Dean Morgan
8. Early Life
Jeffrey Dean Morgan was born on April 22, 1966 to Sandy Thomas and Richard Dean Morgan in Seattle, Washington. He attended Ben Franklin Elementary School, followed by Rose Hill Junior High, and Lake Washington High School. Growing up, Morgan focused on athletics and excelled at both football and basketball and was captain of the basketball team. He ended up getting a basketball scholarship to Skagit Valley College and had dreams of going pro, but an injury to his knee ended that dream.
7. Owns A Candy Store
Aside from being an actor, it seems Morgan is also a businessman! After a close friend who owned Samuel’s Sweet Shop in Rhinebeck, New York, suddenly passed, Morgan along with friend and fellow actor Paul Rudd and another mutual friend stepped in and bought the business to keep it running. Now, the three men’s wives do most of the work with the candy store and keep it going from day to day. The candy store isn’t his only foray into business either. Before moving to L.A., Morgan had actually started his own graphic design company in Seattle, but said he always felt there was something else he was meant to be doing.
