Jaynee Nance’s Biography

Despite the increasing interest in the members of the Nance family, there has been little background information about Jaynee Nance. She has opted to keep her life away from the public, and as a result, there is very little information about facts such as her place and date of birth.

Her husband, Larry Nance Sr, spent fourteen seasons in the NBA between 1981 and 1994, during which he played for two teams, the Phoenix Suns and the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Professionally, not much is known about Jaynee Nance and she is widely believed to have lived as a housewife, raising their children and taking care of the Nance family.

While Nance’s family prominently includes Larry Nance Jr, a player for the Cleveland Cavaliers, other members include her husband, Larry Nance Sr, who played for the Phoenix Suns and the Cleveland Cavaliers.
