Kris Jenner before her empire: see the mom-of-six during her high school years

A look at the momager before she created her multimillion dollar empire

The  Kris Jenner  we know today basically runs the world. From being at the helm of Jenner Communications to raising six uber successful children, the world’s most famous  momager possesses a spark and determination that very few have. The San Diego-born talent manager and businesswoman has gone on to show the world just how you run a family business with flawless precision. After high school, it was reported that Kris also had her sights on becoming a mother rather than going to college, so the brilliant businesswoman went on to pursue other opportunities until she married Robert Kardashian in 1978.

Many have always wondered what the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star executive producer looked like in her teen years prior to her going on to create the multimillion dollar business that she has today. Thanks to MyHeritage In Color™, we get to see the famous momager in full color like never before.
