Jim Schwartz and his wife Kathy Schwartz are originally from Baltimore, MD and formerly lived in Nashville, TN when Jim was coaching with the Tennessee Titans. The couple has a pair of 10 year old twins (Christian and Allison) and an 8-year old daughter, Maria.
Kathy Schwartz, along with other Detroit Lions’ wives, makes regular appearances at the Detroit Lions Academy, an alternative middle school in the Detroit public school system, mentoring early teens girls to help foster self-esteem.
Some people say that the woman makes the man. If that’s the case, then give the Detroit Lions’ success this season, the pre-teen girls aren’t the only people in Detroit that owe a debt of gratitude to Kathy Schwartz.
