Who Are Nischelle Turner’s Parents?

Turner, who was born on February 11, 1975, has never acknowledged her father in an interview or on social media, and has never shared any information regarding her birth. It could be because Jacqui Turner, a single mother from Columbia, Missouri, raised her. Her mother and her mother’s extended family, which includes her grandparents, have a unique link with her. Her diabetic mother fed the homeless in their community on a regular basis. Turner will never be able to express his gratitude to her for her humanitarian work.

In an Instagram post for Mother’s Day 2020, she commended her mother’s nice nature. She remarked about how her parents raised her to be patient, compassionate, and God-fearing. Her mother has impacted the journalist, who is also interested in humanitarian work. Following her time as host of ET, she started the James and Margie Turner Memorial Scholarship Fund, which helped at-risk youngsters in her community. She is also a mentor for Brown Girls’ Dream and volunteers at the Boys & Girls Club of America.
