Mini Bio (1)

Geroge Jung was born August 6, 1942 in Weymouth, Mass. He began as a smalltime marijuana smuggler in the 1960s, but in jail met Carlos Lehder who had connections with Pablo Escobar, and thus was born the first large-scale cocaine smuggling operation into the United States. Over the span of several years Jung accumulated nearly $100M in a Panamanian bank account. He is presently a resident of La Tuna Federal Correctional Institute, scheduled for release around the year 2014. Jung's story is the basis for the 2001 film Blow, directed by Ted Demme.

He has one daughter, Kristina Jung
