Jeanette J. Hopper, Wife of William Hopper
There is very little information available about Mrs. Hopper, we know she was married to the late William Hopper, and we know she has a child named Gordon Casimire Williams II. We also know that she tragically passed away from a cardiac arrest episode in 2008 on the 20th of October.
Her Net Worth
Because there is very little to no information available about Jeanette J Hopper, there is, in turn, no information about her career or net worth.
The Life of Her Husband
William Hopper was born on the 26th of January in the year 1915. His parents were William Dewolf and Hedda Hopper. William was born in New York City; he is the only child of his parents; however, he does have one half-sibling, a brother from one of his father’s previous marriages. His half-brother is John A. Hopper.
William had several minor roles in more than 80 films during the 1930s and 1940s. He decided to leave the entertainment industry after he served in World War II. He was convinced by William Wellman, a director, to re-join the entertainment industry. Proof that he did so was his best-known work playing Paul Drake in a CBS series called Perry Mason.
William started his career in the entertainment industry while he was still a teenager doing stage productions. In 1936 under a pseudo name, Hopper received a contract with Paramount Pictures, where he landed several minor roles in films. In 1937 he was given the opportunity to be the leading man in two different films alongside June Travis and Jane Wyman.
William Hopper said that he went into the entertainment industry because that is what his mother, Hedda Hopper wanted him to do.
While in the military during the second world war, he served as a volunteer for the office of strategic services and was a member of the underwater demolition team. William received many awards, including a bronze star during his time in military service. During wartime, William Hopper didn’t focus much on acting other than sometimes using it for car sales in the business he got involved with in Holly Wood. William was married twice in his life, first to Jane Gilbert from 1940 to 1959, and the couple share one daughter. He then married Jeanette Juanita Ward, who became Jeanette J Hopper. They stayed married until he died in 1970.
William Hopper tragically passed from pneumonia on the 6th of March after a stroke on the 14th of February. He was merely 55 years old at the time.
At the time of his death, he had a 4 million U.S. dollars net worth.
