Who is Cheryl Flake?

Cheryl Flake is an American housewife who is famous for her cooking skills, but is also the wife of Arizona senator Jeff Flake. She was born in Arizona in the mid-1960’s but the exact date is not known to the public. Her nationality is American, her ethnicity is white, and she is a very religious Christian.

Who is Cheryl Flake’s husband Jeff?

Jeff Flake was born in Snowflake, Arizona, on 31 December 1962, and is a politician, a senator for Arizona from 2013 to 2019. He finished high school with flying colors and went on to study at Brigham Young University which is located in Provo, Utah, graduating with a bachelor’s degree in international relations, after which he obtained a Master of Arts degree in political science. He is also very religious as his wife is, and in the early 1980’s he got the chance to become a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, in South Africa, spending a few years in this church and learning to speak Afrikaans. After returning to the US, he worked as an Executive Director for the Goldwater Institute. His political career started in 2001, when he was elected as a Republican to the House of Representatives of Arizona for the 1st congressional district.  He remained until 2013, when he was succeeded by Rick Renzi, having been elected as a senator for Arizona. His political career wasn’t that successful, and in early 2018 he announced that he wouldn’t be in the new elections of 2018. He was succeeded by the new senator Kyrsten Sinema.

Early life and education

Cheryl has spent her whole life in Arizona. She had a good childhood and was keen on graduating from the Brigham Young University. In the early 1980’s she got her degree from the college and finished her education.

Cheryl and Jeff Flake

Meeting her love Jeff

The two were studying together at the BYU in Utah where they met. In an interview he did for the East Valley Tribune in 2007 he said: “She cut my hair while we were at collage, and she still does” – that is how they met, and they eventually tied the knot in 1985. Some sources say that they held a big wedding with approximately more than 250 guests, after they graduated from their university that same year.

Family life and private life

Soon afterwards they had their first child, and today they have five children named Alexis, Ryan, Austin, Tanner and Dallin and one grandchild. Today they apparently all live together in their massive house in Mesa which they bought in 1999. According to some sources the house was bought for $450,000 but today is worth more than $650,000.

Cooking career

Since Cheryl was really young she was in love with cooking, and today cooks for her family. She has even written books on cooking that got her more attention from the public than she had ever hoped to have. In most cases her daughter Alexis helps her with the cooking, every Sunday cooking a big dinner for her family. Her cook book is called “How to Feed Your Summer Crowd Without Going Crazy”.

Drama with a local sheriff

In 2015 Cheryl and Jeff had to sue their neighbor who is an Arizona sheriff because he accused their kids Dallin and Austin of killing 21 dogs; they sued the sheriff’s office for $8 million. After the local judge reviewed all the evidence, he decided to drop the case against the Flakes and ruled in their favor. There was enough evidence that the dogs died from heat and dehydration.


There is no information about her height or her weight. She is a natural blond with dark brown eyes.  She stands at an average height.

Social media

She does not have any social media profiles, but her husband does have both an Instagram and a Twitter profile.
