Juan Williams was born on April 10, 1954, in Colón, Panama. He moved to the United States at the age of three as an immigrant with his family. His mother, Rogelio, was a seamstress, and his father, Rogelio, was a boxing trainer.

Juan earned a scholarship to the Oakwood Friends School in New York. He completed his graduation in 1972. During his tenure, he offered his services as a representative of the student body. In addition to his studies, Juan was interested in extracurricular activities and participated in several events. He played for the baseball team and represented his squad as the captain. Juan also loved to play basketball and competed in many games at the national level.

After finishing high school, he went on to attend Haverford College, which was a liberal arts college. He received his Bachelor's Degree in Philosophy from Haverford College in 1976.


Juan has been married to Delise Susan since 1978. They have three loving children from their marriage. Raphael and Antonio are their two sons, and the name of their only daughter is Rae. They have been married for close to 40 years.

Following his father's footsteps, Antonio, the first son of the family, became an intern for Senator Strom Thurmond in 1996. Antonio also tried running for a seat on the Council of the District of Columbia, but he lost to Tommy Wells.

During an interview conducted by Yahoo News on why he became a Republican, Antonio brought to light some delightful details about his father. When asked to describe his dad in his own words, he said he thought he was a straight shooter who tries to be as direct and honest with his opinions and views as possible. Antonio credits his dad for pushing him to pursue his career.

His other son, Raffi, studied anthropology and played lacrosse at Haverford College. The same university Juan attended in Pennsylvania. Raffi currently works as a press secretary to Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson and is also a Republican like his older brother.


After completing his college graduation in 1976, Juan started pursuing his dream of becoming a journalist. He joined The Washington Post as an intern the same year he graduated.
