Lauren Boebert is a Republican politician and businesswoman who has a net worth of $400 thousand. That is a combined net worth with her husband, Jayson Boebert, who in recent years has earned nearly $500,000 per year as a consultant.

Lauren Boebert was elected to the US representative for Colorado's 3rd congressional district in 2020 and began serving in 2021. A fervid gun rights advocate, she previously owned the now-defunct restaurant Shooters Grill in Rifle, Colorado. Among many other reasons, Boebert is also infamous for her ties to far-right extremist groups, her anti-LGBTQ views, and her attempts to help overturn the 2020 presidential election results.

Financial Disclosure Report

According to her August 2022 House of Representatives Financial Disclosure Report, Lauren and her husband carry less than $15,000 in a primary checking account and less than $15,000 four additional retirement and investment accounts. Other reported assets include capital gains from something called Crypto Money Movement COIN that's worth less than $15,000 and a handful of other investments that are each worth less than $1,000.

In terms of liabilities, they owe Pennymac bank between $250,000 and $500,000 for a mortgage connected to their personal home in Rifle, Colorado, which according to public estimates is worth between $600,000 and $700,000. The value of the couple's former restaurant business is listed at less than $15,000.

Lauren Boebert is NOT Worth $41 Million

Contrary to a popular internet rumor, Lauren is NOT wort $41 million. That figure came from a parody website which we will not name here. The same website claimed that Boebert owns a luxury yacht, 5 real estate properties, has cash reserves of $16 million and makes $250,000 per month in income. All of these are completely fabricated claims made by a farcical website.

Early Life and Education

Lauren Boebert was born Lauren Opal Roberts on December 19, 1986 in Altamonte Springs, Florida. Her mother was an 18-year-old single mom. For many years her mother has claimed that Lauren's biological father is a retired professional wrestler named Stan Lane. Lauren's mother filed several paternity suits against Lane between 1987 and 1990. Lane took a test in 1990 that reportedly ruled him out as Lauren's father, but the mother persisted. In May 2023 Lane took a second paternity test which once again proved he was not Lauren's father.

When she was 12, she moved with her family to Denver, Colorado. They later moved to Aurora before finally settling in Rifle in 2003. Boebert went to Rifle High School, but dropped out in her senior year after having a baby.

Personal Life

In 2004, when Lauren was 17, he went bowling with a 24-year-old man named Jayson Boeberts. On the night of that first date Jayson allegedly exposed his penis to two women at the bowling alley. Jayson eventually pleaded guilty to public indecency and was sentenced to four days in jail and two years of probation. One month after that bowling alley date Jayson also pleaded guilty to a domestic violence charge that was reportedly against Lauren. He spent seven days in jail for this charge.

Lauren and Jayson married in 2007. Together, they have four sons. Lauren dropped out of high school around 2008 when she became pregnant with their first child. She filed for divorce in May 2023.

Boebert got into legal trouble herself in 2016 when she was cited for careless driving and operating an unsafe vehicle. In early 2017, she was arrested and booked for failure to appear in court.

Boebert became a born-again Christian in 2009.

In June 2023 Lauren revealed that she had become a grandmother after her 17-year-old son Tyler welcomed a baby boy with a girlfriend. At the time of her grandchild's birth, Lauren was 36.

Shooters Grill

After dropping out of high school, Laruen became an assistant manager at a McDonald's in Rifle. Later, following her marriage, she had a filing job at a natural gas drilling company.

In 2013, Lauren and Jayson opened a restaurant in Rifle, Colorado called Shooters Grill. She encouraged the restaurant's staff to openly carry firearms due to a false claim she made that a man was beaten to death outside of the restaurant. Boebert also owned a restaurant across the street called Smokehouse 1776, and had another restaurant called Putters that she sold in late 2016.

In 2017, temporary locations set up by Shooters Grill and Smokehouse 1776 allegedly caused a food poisoning outbreak at a fair in Garfield County. The restaurants reportedly did not have permits to operate their temporary locations, and that they allegedly handled the food without proper hygiene. According to her congressional disclosure forms, the restaurant lost $143,000 in 2019 and $226,000 in 2020.

Boebert caused more chaos in 2020 during the COVID pandemic when she violated Colorado's stay-at-home order by reopening Shooters Grill for dine-in. Her food license was soon suspended, and Shooters Grill was eventually shuttered in the summer of 2022.

US House of Representatives

Boebert decided to enter federal politics in late 2019 when she announced her campaign to represent Colorado's 3rd congressional district as a US representative. Facing five-term incumbent Scott Tipton in the Republic primary, and then Democrat Diane Mitsch Bush in the general, Boebert ran on a campaign that celebrated far-right extremism and gun ownership. She also vocally embraced conspiracy theories promoted by QAnon. Boebert ultimately won the election.

In 2021, Boebert got into trouble with the FEC for using her reelection campaign funds for personal expenses. She eventually submitted documents to the FEC showing that the money was used for rental and utilities bills, and that it had since been reimbursed. However, controversy continued to plague her during her campaign, mostly for the many inflammatory and false statements she made. Notably, Boebert perpetuated the Big Lie that the 2020 presidential election was stolen, and claimed that Anthony Fauci was responsible for facilitating the COVID pandemic. She still managed to pull out the win in the general election, albeit by a very narrow margin.

Political Positions

Boebert opposes women's rights, LGBTQ rights, immigrant rights, clean energy, sex education, gun control, universal healthcare, and safety measures in the control of COVID-19. During the height of the pandemic, she objected to facemasks and vaccines, and was fined for violating Congress's mask mandate.

Among her other positions, she supported the insurrectionists who stormed the US Capitol on January 6, 2021, and subsequently voted to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election. Boebert has advocated for the abolishment of the US Department of Education. She has made racist remarks about other US representatives, including Ilhan Omar.

Boebert Consulting

In 2012, Lauren's husband Jayson launched Boebert Consulting, which works with the Colorado natural gas company Terra Energy. Financial disclosures in the lead-up to the 2022 election showed that Jayson earned $478,386 in 2020 and $460,601 in 2021 from the consulting company. In 2021, Boebert Consulting was classified as a delinquent company by the state of Colorado due to the lack of filings or registered agent.

Real Estate

Lauren and Jayson co-own a 5-acre property in Rifle, Colorado that features a 4-bedroom, 2,700-square-foot home that dates back to the early 1900s. It's unclear when they purchased the property or for how much, but according to House financial disclosures, they carry a mortgage with Pennymac bank that is estimated in the "$250,000 – 500,000" range.
