Early life and education
DePrisco was born on August 30, 1955 in an unknown city in the US, most likely Massachusetts.
His parents are Maria DePrisco and Francis DePrisco, and he has a sister named Deirdre E. DePrisco. His family was quite wealthy and very business oriented, and DePrisco was influenced by them to become known among entrepreneurs. Apart from this little information, nothing is known about his education and childhood life.
DePrisco is the owner of one of the largest jewelers in the world called AM DePrisco Wellesley. The shop was owned by his parents, but he bought it from them in 1995 and worked independently for 10 years.
In 2005, the store was moved to Washington Street in Wellesley, Massachusetts, USA. The brand specializes in making diamonds and other types of expensive jewelry and has opened another store in Downtown Boston, Massachusetts, as well as one on Cape Cod in Osterville, Massachusetts.
Marriage to Lisa Niemi
DePrisco first made headlines in 2011, when he began dating Lisa Niemi, an actress and ex-wife of popukar actor Patrick Swayze. Born on May 26, 1956 in Houston, Texas, USA, Lisa Niemi is known for her numerous appearances in films alongside Swayze.
They performed together in “Steel Dawn”, “Urban Cowboy” and “Grandview, USA”, but the most famous title is “One Last Dance”. The couple married in 1975 and remained married until Swayze died in 2009. DePrisco is said to be the couple’s close friend, staying by Niemi’s side after her husband died.
They started dating not long after Swayze’s passing, and DePrisco proposed to Niemi on December 28, 2013, and the couple tied the knot on May 25, 2014 in an intimate ceremony at The Mar-a-Lago Club, located in Palm Beach, Florida, one of the largest and most expensive resorts in Palm Beach, built in the 1920s.
Despite being held on such a luxurious estate, the wedding was rather private, just for the couple’s family and close friends. Niemi’s wedding ring is an expensive cushion-cut diamond eternity band, and she also has a second band that matches DePrisco’s. Their wedding dance was choreographed by Deirdre, De Prisco’s sister, who works as a professional ballroom dancer. The bride was apparently gorgeous in a long, white dress, while De Prisco wore a classic black and white suit.
Since both were in their late fifties when they married, the couple has no children.
Lisa Nieni married Albert DePrisco 5 years after the death of her previous husband (Patrick Swayze) from pancreatic cancer.
Niemi also had no children with Swayze. It’s been said that she was pregnant when she married her first husband, but miscarried, after which she was told she could not have children.
Although she remarried, Niemi still often posts photos on her Instagram profile where she remembers her late first husband. When asked about this, she once said, “I must say that the love I have for Patrick has never conflicted or competed with my feelings for Albert.” She also stated that she thinks Swayze would be happy that she remarried, and that the man she chose to marry is DePrisco.
Despite being a millionaire, DePrisco has always done well to keep most of his life private. He is the face of Children’s Trust of Massachusetts, the organization that works to end child abuse in Massachusetts, and is their proud sponsor. “Children’s Trust of Massachusetts” works through a huge network made up of more than 100 innovative and creative community foundations that seek to help children in need. In 2017, DePrisco donated a piece of jewelry to the silent auction held at the annual Children’s Trust Gala.
Another foundation that DePrisco supports is “Make-A-Wish Foundation Massachusetts” as well as their Rhode Island’s Diamond Raffle which is always on display at the fundraising gala. In 2015, DePrisco donated a pair of Tahitian diamond and pearl earrings, which sold out for about $15,000. All proceeds from the sale went to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
DePrisco is not active on social media while his wife Lisa Niemi has a Instagram account.
DePrisco earns most of his income through his jewelry business that he has owned for decades. As of April 2020, DePrisco .’s net worth is estimated around $40 million. On the other hand, his wife has a net worth of about $1 million.
The exact dimensions of DePrisco have not been disclosed, but judging by the photos we can see that he stands at an average height for a man, with a weight slightly above average for his height. He has light blue eyes and blond hair that has now turned gray.
