Who is Kristina Sunshine Jung?

Born under the sign of Leo on the 1st of August 1978 in California, USA, Kristina Sunshine Jung is a 39-year-old Hispanic female of Cuban and Colombian descent. She is definitely best known to the world for being the daughter of George Jung, who was one of the closest associates of arguably the richest and most dangerous drug lord of the late 20th century, Pablo Escobar. It is unknown whether she has had any personal successes, as no information about her career is available.

Early Life

Kristina was born while her father was in jail, and while her mother Mirtha Jung of Colombian descent was dealing drugs, which she was also addicted to. Both her mother and her father faced jail sentences during Kristina’s early youth, making her early life quite tumultuous. Her mother stopped using substances three years after Kristina’s birth, in 1981, and her parents divorced in 1984, at which point her mother got custody – well, her father was in jail. Her paternal grandparents are Frederick Jung and Ermine Jung, who made significant contributions to her well-being during her earliest years. They would send boxes of clothing and toys every now and then, mostly on special occasions. However, the gifts stopped when Frederick passed away. Since her mother kept having runs-in with the law, her paternal grandparents asked her aunt to take care of her until she is 18. As a result, she was raised by Marie Jung, George’s sister. As for her education, it is unknown which high school she attended, though she is supposed to have matriculated in 1996. That said, any college education is also a mystery.

Her Father

Born George Jacob Jung on the 6th of August 1942 in Boston, Massachusetts USA, also nicknamed ‘El Americano’, he is a drug trafficker and smuggler who was personally in charge of the Medellin cartel’s cocaine exports into the USA. In other words, more than 85% of the cocaine that came into the US during the Medellin Cartel’s rule was through George himself. In his early life, he attended Weymouth High School and later the University of Southern Mississippi, but didn’t graduate. His criminal life began when he started using marijuana, part of which he would sell instead of smoke in an attempt to remain financially stable. In 1967 he began looking outward, trying to find new ways to expand his little business. He started smuggling cannabis that he himself bought in California into New England. He had a stewardess girlfriend at that point, and with her help, began smuggling marijuana through flights. Later on, he made a deal at Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, where he hired professional pilots to fly airplanes stolen from Cape Cod. At some point, these smuggling flights were raking in $250,000 a month, which is $1.6 million in today’s value. However, he was later arrested and sent to the Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, Connecticut.

George and Escobar

In 1974, while serving his jail time, George met Carlos Lehder Rivas, who then had connections to the Medellin Cartel. The two talked, sharing ideas and interests, and eventually they came to an agreement that George would teach Lehder how to smuggle, while Lehder would connect him to the cartel. They were released in 1975, and Pablo’s first smuggling flight happen in the same year. It was Jung’s idea to use single-engine airplanes, which carried around 660lbs (300kg) of Pablo’s cocaine per flight – each kilogram was valued at $10,000, and with five Colombia-California flights on a daily basis, Jung was effectively making $15 million every run, or In the close to $5 million every day. He kept most of his money in the national bank of Panama, where his earnings were laundered. However, this deal didn’t go on for too long, since in 1980 Lehder cut him out from the deal, but Jung still kept his smuggling business even though he was no longer affiliated with Escobar. He was finally found and arrested in 1987, at his mansion on Nauset Beach in the vicinity of Eastham, Massachusetts. He actually skipped bail, but was subsequently found participating in other illegal activities, and betrayed by an acquaintance.

His Reincarceration

Jung was released in 2014, and spent two years on parole but was then arrested for violating it on the 6th of December 2016. Jung’s close sources claimed that he was arrested for making a paid promotional appearance under the arrangement of his manager, but that this was perceived as a legal offense since the appearance wasn’t cleared by his parole officer.

What is Kristina Sunshine Jung’s Net Worth?

Have you ever wondered how rich Kristina Sunshine Jung is, as of mid-2018? According to various authoritative sources, it has been estimated that the current total of Kristina’s accumulated wealth is close to $300,000, while her annual earnings are unknown. That said, her father’s net worth is at the moment estimated at $10,000, but it is certain that he made much more than that over the course of his criminal career, but it’s unknown where this money went.

Body Measurements

Concerning Kristina’s physical attributes, her vital statistics, height and current weight are unknown. Her body shape is generally described as regular, while her hair color is light blond and her eyes are light brown.

Social Media Presence

Due to the major influence of social networks, it is nowadays a regular thing for active celebrities to nourish a close and active relationship with their fans, for the sake of increasing the popularity of the projects they’re working on, and thus their own net worth. However, Kristina doesn’t seem to be too interested in keeping up with this celebrity trend, as her presence on social media networks is almost nowhere to be found. Her Facebook and Twitter accounts don’t exist, while her Instagram profile is private and has over 20,000 followers. Although supposedly reconciled with her father, an open association with him may not be desirable, so it’s possibly better for her to stay out of the spotlight.
