Joan Tisch Net Worth: $2.8 Billion

Joan Tisch is an American businesswoman, who has an estimated net worth of $2.8 billion, which she inherited from her late husband. Together with Wilma Tisch, her sister in-law, they control the vast family fortune that was built by their deceased husbands, Laurence and Preston Tisch. The two brothers started a small hotel in New Jersey and turned their business into a diversifying corporation, eventually having three publicly traded companies and two entirely owned subsidiaries.

 In 1959, the Tisch siblings gained control stakes in Loews Theatre and continued to acquire new firms in the following years. Joan owns a 6.6% stake and she also inherited 50% ownership of the New York’s Giant football team, which was bought by her late husband in 1991. Her son Jonathan, together with Wilma’s son, Andrew, serve as the co-chairmen of Loews Hotels. Joan Tisch holds a Bachelor of Art / Science from the University of Michigan. The widow was married to Preston Robert Tisch, with whom they had three children, Laurie, Steve and Jonathan.
