Ronald Lee Wyden was born on May 3, 1949 in Wichita, Kansas.

Ron first became a member of the House of Representatives for the state of Oregon in 1980, helping to shape the iconic Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, which laid the foundation for freedom on the internet. He eventually won a senate election in 1996 and is currently the senior senator and the head of the senate congressional delegation for Oregon.
Ron has been married twice, first to Lauree for 20 years, and next to Nancy Wyden. He is the father of five children.

Jeff had his high school education at David Douglas High School before receiving a bachelor’s degree in International Relations from Stanford University in California and a Master’s degree in Public Affairs at the Woodrow Wilson School at Princeton University.
In over three decades of Jeff’s political career, he served as member and speaker of the Oregon House of Representatives for 10 years (1999 - 2009), before becoming a senator in 2009.
Jeff married Mary Sorteberg in 1992. They have two children together.
