When she was two years old in the summer of 1994, her mom Nancy got pregnant with her younger brother Jared Goff.
Jared was born on October 14, 1994, six weeks after Jerry finished his 1994 season with Buffalo Bisons.
What Does Lauren Goff Do?
Lauren Goff enrolled at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) and graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in International Development in 2014.
Then again, at UCLA, she pursued post-graduate studies earning a Master’s degree in Social Welfare.

As per an article on Newsbeezer.com in 2019, she worked for CASA, an organization that advocates for foster children in the court.
Jared Goff’s Sister Lauren Goff | Parents
Lauren’s father, Jerry Leroy Goff (b. April 12, 1964), is a former MLB player who played professionally from 1990 to 1997. Now, he works as a firefighter.
Her mother, Nancy Ann Goff, has been a senior mortgage advisor at CrossCountry Mortgage, LLC, since January 2020. Before that, she was a mortgage broker at Terra Mortgage Banking for eight years (2012-20).
Both her parents attended the same high school & University. After San Rafael High School, they enrolled at the University of California, Berkley.
Lauren’s dad Jerry Goff was a budding baseball prospect since his high school days; he was drafted twice (in 1983 & 1984) but opted for collegiate baseball at the University of California, Berkeley.
Then, Jerry signed with Seattle Mariners as the 63rd overall pick in the 1986 Major League Baseball draft.
After four seasons in the minor league system of the Mariners, he sought an MLB career as a catcher with Montreal Expos (1990, 1992), Pittsburgh Pirates (1993-94), and Houston Astros (1995-96).
Father Declined Coaching Offers For Family
After the 1997 season with Amarillo Dillas, Jerry Goff retired from baseball. Even though he was offered deals to pursue a coaching career, he opted out of those.
Why? Because being a coach would have required him to spend years, even decades, away from the family.
By the late 90s, his daughter Lauren was attending kindergarten & son Jared was a toddler, so Nancy wanted Jerry to have stability for kids.
So, the family relocated permanently to the Bay Area. Lauren’s dad Jerry began to work as a firefighter after baseball retirement.
And thanks to the scheduling flexibility of the job, he could spend a lot of time with his family- including game evenings, dancing parties & hide-and-seek competitions.
Lauren and her brother Jared picked sports interests while growing up. Their father, Jerry was there to mentor them. He coached Lauren in softball while her brother saw baseball mentorship.
Lauren Goff Became Emotional At Brother’s NFL Appearance
When Jared came onto the Coliseum field for the first time before the Cowboys game, Lauren’s eyes were filled with emotions. It was also her first NFL game attendance.
She claims that up until that point, she had not been particularly emotional.
Lauren told The Los Angeles Times in 2016 that his appearance in NFL made her feel significantly different than his games at UC Berkeley:
“At Cal it was like he was a local guy so it didn’t really feel so out of this world. When he stepped on the field, I was thinking, ‘This is so weird. That’s Jared out on the field.’”
Proud moment for any sister!
Moreover, in the same interview, she mentioned a funny incident about their recognizable last name, “Goff.”
Lauren said that her client in the phone interview said she ‘had the same last name as that quarterback kid (referring to Jared).’
She even talked about the 2nd episode of Season 11 of “Hard Knocks,” where Jared Goff chose Bieber when asked preference for Justin Timberlake or Justin Bieber. She said that her brother is a huge fan of Canadian singer.
