Jim Boeheim's wife Juli Boeheim,
- Our research into the wives of college basketball coaches has taught us one overwhelming fact: college basketball wives are invariably charitable. Juli Boeheim is no exception.
Many college coaches are involved with a foundation called Coaches vs Cancer before he met Juli. When the two got together, they created an event called the Basket Ball which is a black tie fundraiser with all proceeds going to cancer foundations. The event is entering it's 13th year having raised more than $4,000,000 for cancer research in that time. It's also spawned additional events in Philadelphia, Albany, Connecticut, Buffalo and more. The couple also runs The Jim and Juli Boeheim Foundation, which is set up to help children in central New York, and also raise funds for cancer research. In a cool fundraising move, they are currently selling a comic book entitles The Adventures of Orangeman and Orangewoman which chronicles the history of Syracuse athletics through the eyes of the superhero protagonists derived from the SU mascot.
Individually, Juli has won two awards for her work in the community. In 2005, she was awarded as the Syracuse Citizen of the Year for her work in the community to help others.
Jim and Julie were married in 1997 after having been introduced at the 1994 Kentucky Derby. The couple has three children together, sons Jimmy, Jamie and Jack. Jim also has a daughter, Elizabeth, from a previous marriage.
