Theo Nathan Epstein was the EVP/General Manager of the Boston Red Sox and is currently the President of The Chicago Cubs.. In 2004 he engineered the first World Series championship by the Red Sox in 86 years and a second in the 2007 season. Epstein was raised just a few miles from Fenway Park in Brookline, where he attended Brookline High School, played baseball for the Warriors, and dreamed of working for the Red Sox. Epstein began interning with the Baltimore Orioles in 1992. Meanwhile, Epstein attended Yale University where he lived at Jonathan Edwards College and served as sports editor of the Yale Daily News, and graduated in 1995 with a degree in American Studies. Eventually he took a job in the PR department of the San Diego Padres; soon Epstein would become the team's Director of Baseball Operations. While working for the Padres, he studied full-time at the University of San Diego School of Law, where he earned a Juris Doctor degree and passed the California bar exam in 1999. In January 2007, Epstein married Marie Whitney, a volunteer at Horizons for Homeless Children and they have a baby boy, Jack!

Paul Epstein

Born 60 seconds before Theo, Paul is, technically, the middle of Leslie and Ilene Epstein's three children.  Raised in Brookline with sister Anya and twin brother Theo, Paul graduated from Brookline High and headed off to Wesleyan a short 25 minutes from Theo and Anya at Yale. While playing soccer and studying classics, he discovered a passion for working with youth when he became a Big Brother. The experience completely changed the direction of his life and he embarked on a career in social work. After working in residential treatment at The Home for Little Wanderers, where he met his lovely wife, Saskia Grinberg, he earned an MSW from BU in 1998. He is  a social worker at Brookline High School and co-founder, with his wife Saskia, of the only youth community center in Brookline - The Brookline Teen Center.  In 2005, he co-founded the Foundation to be Named Later with Theo.  He and Saskia live in Brookline with their two beautiful children, Annika and Ezra.

Epstein's grandfather Philip G. Epstein and great-uncle Julius J. Epstein won Academy Awards for the screenplay of Casablanca, while his father served as head of an English department at Boston University.
