Personal Life

Chris met Marianne Leone in an acting class in 1979, and they married on July 8, 1983. The couple welcomed a son, Jesse, in October 1987, three months prematurely. Three days after his birth, Jesse had a cerebral hemorrhage, which resulted in cerebral palsy. In 2003, Cooper told “The Morning Call” that his son was the best thing that had ever happened to him, adding, “He’s in a wheelchair and he communicates only by computer, but he’s taught me so much because he’s just so incredibly focused. Now he’s in a regular school, which we fought to get him into. He’s an honors student, and he’s doing great.” Sadly, Jesse passed away suddenly on January 3, 2005, at the age of 17, and two years later, Chris and Marianne founded the Jesse Cooper Foundation in his memory. In May 2016, the University of Massachusetts Lowell presented Cooper with an honorary doctorate during the school’s commencement ceremony. Chris and Marianne have adopted numerous rescue dogs, and in an April 2021 post on her website, Leone revealed that she was working on a book about rescues. She also wrote the book “Jesse: A Mother’s Story,” which is described as “an unforgettable memoir of joy, grief, and triumph.”
