Carolyn and Marc Lore: Daughters

The couple have two daughters together: Sierra and Sophia.

Sierra is thought to be around 21 years old. Sophia is younger at about 18 years old.

Speaking about striking a balance between work and raising his kids, Marc Lore said back in 2009: “These days, I tend to work after the kids go to bed as well. My kids are both involved with sports, and I don’t think I’ve missed one of their games. It’s important to fit that stuff in. I think I’ve struck a pretty good balance, but it’s not always easy.”

Lore continued: “Sometimes I eat dinner with the kids, sometimes not. Often it’s close to their bedtime after I eat, so I will read them stories and put them to bed. Afterward, I catch up with my wife, talk about her day. Then, I go in to work. I have like a little mini office off the bedroom.”
