Kris Jenner was born Kristen Mary Houghton on November 5, 1955, in San Diego, California. Her father, Robert Houghton, was an aircraft engineer. Kris has one younger sister named Karen.
When Kris's parents divorced in 1962, her mother sold the family home in the Point Loma area of San Diego. Kris and her mom and sister then moved to Clairemont, California, where Kris attended Longfellow Elementary School.
A year after her parents' divorce, Kris developed a cancerous bone tumor. Fortunately, the cancer did not spread. After undergoing surgery to remove the tumor, Kris was given a clean bill of health.
A few years later, Kris's mother remarried to businessman Harry Shannon. Three months after moving to Oxnard, California, Harry's business partner ran off with all the company's money. As a result, the family moved back to San Diego.
When Kris graduated from Clairemont High School, she was far more interested in "getting out in the world" and becoming a wife and mother, than in going to college.
On July 8, 1978, Kris married a successful attorney, Robert Kardashian, whose best friend was athlete and actor O.J. Simpson. Kris became fast friends with Simpson's wife, Nicole.

In the 1990s, Kris was devastated to learn that her friend, Nicole Brown Simpson, had been killed and that Nicole's husband, O.J. Simpson, was being accused of her murder. Kris's ex-husband, Robert Kardashian, gained national fame by serving as Simpson's defense during his highly publicized trial. In 2003, Robert Kardashian died of esophageal cancer.
