Lee Goldberg and His Wife First Met in Pre-school — Inside Their Family
WABC-TV’s chief meteorologist, Lee Goldberg, has been very fortunate to find a wife with whom he can share the trials and tribulations of life and create their family.
He and his wife, Jessica Goldberg, have known each other since their school days. Later, they shared their wedding vows. As of now, they have a marital bond that has lasted over two decades.
Lee Goldberg Met His Wife Four Decades Ago
The Goldbergs’ love story dates back to their pre-school days. The now-married couple first met each other around 1975, when both of them attended the same pre-school.
They became good friends and stayed in touch with each other. Their friendship, eventually, turned into a romantic relationship when the meteorologist asked her out on a date in 1986.
Jessica said yes, and the rest, as they say, is history.

Twelve years after their first date, on August 16, 1998, Lee and his partner took the most significant step in their relationship and legalized their bond by getting married.
A fine example of their amazing marital life can be witnessed through Lee’s Twitter post from August 16, 2019. It was the day of their 21st wedding anniversary, so he posted some lovely pictures alongside a heartfelt caption.
"21 years of marriage. 33 years since our first date. 44 years since we sat next to each other in our nursery school class photo," he began the tweet. He added he was fortunate to plan the future and have a family with "such a special person."
"Love you Jess. Happy Anniversary!" he wrote, ending his message.
Lee Goldberg and His Wife Have Two Children
The meteorologist and his wife are blessed with two children.
The father-of-two usually shares updates on his family and kids’ education on socials.
For instance, on June 23, 2020, Lee proudly shared moments from his son’s virtual commencement ceremony as he graduated from North Eastern University’s class of 2020.
He did the same when his son got enrolled at Cornell University in April 2021.

Likewise, on August 22, 2020, the weather forecaster shared an emotional post as his daughter returned to complete her studies at Syracuse University after a six-month break due to COVID-19.
Lee's daughter, who turned 21 on May 28, 2021, is an aspiring designer and has been studying design at the university.
In July 2021, he posted a picture of his daughter on two distinct dresses and then expressed his pride, saying that the dresses were designed by his daughter herself.
Apart from that, he flaunts family pictures from their vacation and festive celebrations.
For instance, on August 8, 2020, he shared some lovely family pictures where they could be seen relishing their vacation at Bar Harbor, Maine.
