Terry Pegula

Terrence Michael Pegula, or Terry Pegula, was born in 1951 in Carbondale, Pennsylvania. He grew up in poverty before using his brain to gain a University degree.

Right after graduation, Terry Pegula loaned a small amount of money ($7,500) from family and friends to open his own oil exploration company East Resources. Luck was with young Terry back in 1983 and the first two sites he exploited struck the black gold, so from then on life changed for Terry Pegula.

He purchased Pennzoil Assets in 2000 to add to his oil and gas drilling empire before a few years later he started selling off. He sold East Resources to Royal Dutch Shell for $4.7 billion in 2010. 

Kim Pegula

Kim Kerr is a South Korean born in Seoul in 1969. Kim’s upbringing is dramatic. She was abandoned by her parents on the streets of Seoul at the age of  just 5 and she was given up for adoption.

In 1974 Kim, only age 5, was lucky to be adopted by the childless American couple Ralph and Marilyn Kerr. Kim lived in a moderately modest household but she grew up without any serious dramas after her very tough early years.

She graduated from Houghton College. Shortly after graduation, she started looking for a job as a waitress, so she could collect money for an adventure trip to Alaska. As it happens she met Terry while applying for such a job in a restaurant he frequented. They fell in love and the rest is history as they say.

Kim and Terry Pegula family and when they married?

Kim and Terry Pegula children – are they involved in the business?
