Sandra Smith Husband

Sandra is married to John Connelly, a financial television commentator for Fox News and former director of product marketing for CME Group. The couple got married on May 1, 2010. The couple has an age difference of 12 years but Sandra told the Chicago Tribune that the age difference doesn’t bother them.

The couple first met while they were working at Terra Nova Trading, LLC. At the time Sandra worked as a sales trader. Sandra told The Chicago Tribune that her first two weeks on the job were John’s last two. He was leaving to start his own business.

“After a few days on the job. I was eating my lunch on the trade desk and looked up at the TV screen and noticed there was something very familiar about the guy providing commentary on the financial television program. He had on a bow tie. I turned to look at John’s desk — empty. I looked back up and asked the guys on the desk if that was him.” Sandra said.

After John returned to the office Sandra asked him about it and he invited her to try taping a TV spot at First Business News at CME Group.

He coached her through it and after he left she was asked to take over his role of providing the firm’s TV commentary.

The couple soon began dating. A year and a half later Sandra was offered a job with Bloomberg Television in New York which saw the beginning of their long distance relationship.

“I was on a plane almost every Friday night. Flight delays, snowy weather, tight time schedules made it very challenging. But not once did John complain. He has always been so supportive of my career and goals. He fell in love with my family, and I his. We’d see friends. We’d go to church on Sunday. I was still a lector at Holy Name. There was a lot to squeeze in.”
