Jacob Nicholas Caan is famous as the son of Oscar-nominated late American actor James Caan

Who is his mother?

His mother is actress and designer Linda Stokes

She is the fourth wife of his father. His father’s first marriage was to Dee Jay Mathis

They were married from 1961 to 1966. His second marriage to playboy model turned actress Sheila Marie Ryan only lasted for a year. 

They got divorced in 1967. He married for the third time to Ingrid Hajek

They were married for four years, from 1990 to 1994. His final marriage was to Linda Stokes in October 1995

It was his longest marriage that lasted for nearly two decades.

His parents fought for his legal and physical custody

His parents, Linda and James, marriage went smoothly until it went down the rocks in 2005. 

For the first time, his father filed for divorce in 2005, the second time in 2009, and the last and final time in 2015, citing irreconcilable differences

They had worked through their marriage before finally ending their marriage in 2017. 

In the court filing, his father said he was bound to take embarrassing movie roles to keep up with his wife’s spending. 

He stated that he is no longer willing to participate in films and television shows, detracting from the 50 years he has spent building his reputation. 

He also asked for physical and legal custody of then 16-year-old Jacob stating that he would like Jake to spend at least 50 percent of his time with him, as he will be available to parent him and produce the necessary provisions a teenage boy needs. 

In response to the petition, his mother fired back, saying their son was coming with her.

How many siblings does he have?

He has an elder brother James Arthur Caan who is three years older than him. Besides that, he has an elder half-sister Tara born in 1964 to his father with his first ex-wife. 

Then he has elder-half brothers, Scott Caan and Alexander James Caan, who returned to his father from his second and third marriage, respectively. Scott is an actor.

Scott, during an interview with Extratv, when asked about the advice from his father that he remembers or will carry on with him, said he always had a close relationship with his dad, and there was nothing that needed to be that wasn’t said. 

He is one of the most incredible human beings of all time and the best dad, he added. 

Talking about the advice, he said his father always told him to keep his head down when you are fielding a ground ball, adding humorously that there‘s always sports with him. 

And his favorite lesson his dad ever taught him was that if somebody does something you don’t like, you ask them not to do it, and if they do it again, you can hit them.

His father turned down the role of Superman.

While appearing on Howard Stern Show, his father talked about passing the famous Superman role to Christopher Reeve, which was first offered to him.

According to him, Superman was initially written by Mario Puzo, who wrote The Godfather, and it was all tongue-in-cheek. 

He went on to explain, describing a scene that is when Clark gets devastated because Louis Lane falls madly in love with Superman. “Physically, the office is set up in the Daily Planet. 

So, to get to Clark Kent’s office, you must pass through Lois Lane’s office. So, one day Clark is so pissed off that she is in love with Superman. 

He says, Screws it. And he rips his clothes off, and he’s got his Superman costume on under there. And he says, “Louis, come in here! She comes in and looks at him, ‘That sweet Clark, but you are no Superman. And she walks out”, he said.

Besides that, he also said that Marlon Branda, who starred alongside him in The Godfather, begged him to take the Superman role.

His father died at the age of 82

His father sadly passed away at the age of 82

He died from cardiac arrest on the 6th of July, 2022, at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles.

He also had chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and congestive heart failure.

Net Worth

Jacob lives out of the spotlight, so his exact net worth is under review. 

However, as a son of a legendary actor, we have the net worth of his late father. 

His father had a net worth of $20 million at his death.


He was born on the 24th of September, 1998. He is currently 24 years old.
