Michael A. Goorjian, 53, is pretty famous in the world of acting and filmmaking. You might know him from his role as David Goodson in the TV movie David’s Mother, for which he won an Emmy back in 1994. And if you’ve ever watched Party of Five, you’d recognize him as Justin, Neve Campbell’s boyfriend in the show. His other famous credits include Amerikatsi, an Aremian comedy-drama film.

Meanwhile, the multi-talented individual is a married man. Since 2015, he has been married to Jolie Goorjian (née Martin), as evident from his late dad Peter’s obituary. Jolie, who comes from English ancestry, complements Michael’s rich Armenian and Scottish-American heritage, creating a beautiful blend of cultures within their family. Michael is also a father of one son.

Let’s learn more about his relationship and find out more about his partner.

He Wed on New Year’s Day

Goorjian and Jolie tied the knot in a very secretive ceremony on New Year’s Day January 1st, 2015. Their wedding was so private that it remained under wraps, a move consistent with Michael’s secretive nature, and something his fans have noticed throughout his career.

He has never publicly mentioned his marital status, leaving fans to piece together this aspect of his life on their own.

He Have Appeared a Few Times In Public with his Wife and Son

Michael and Jolie have made a few public appearances together despite their usually private nature. For instance, on January 8th, 2009, they stepped out together for the premiere of Michael’s movie, Ambition to Meaning, at the Lloyd E. Rigler Theatre at the Egyptian, Los Angeles. This rare public outing provided a glimpse into their life as a couple. At that time, they were just boyfriend and girlfriend.

More recently, in 2023, they were seen at the International Oriental Film Festival of Geneva. Their son, Anton, was also in attendance.

These appearances, though infrequent, give fans a peek into their relationship and collaborative support for each other’s professional endeavors.

Michael Goorjian’s Wife Is a University Lecturer

Jolie is a San Francisco State University lecturer where she primarily focuses on the English Language & Literature department. Her academic journey included studying French and Geology at SFSU. Jolie, 50, started her teaching career with middle school French and has significantly expanded her reach by teaching Literature and Critical Thinking to inmates at San Quentin Penitentiary and providing English and French lessons to children in Siberia and Russia.

Her teaching philosophy centers around critical active pedagogy, aiming to create an inclusive and engaging classroom environment. Jolie emphasizes the importance of incorporating students’ experiences into the curriculum, promoting student agency, and fostering a supportive community that extends beyond the classroom walls. This approach not only enhances learning but also builds a strong, connected community among students.
