Jill is a graduate from Simmons College School of Retail Management. She began her career in textiles as an Assistant Buyer in a department store to become the Vice President of Jockey Hosiery. She joined her husband Zarin, owner of Zarin Fabric Warehouse - an institution on New York's lower East Side since 1936 - as a marketing consultant soon after they married. Jill is a licensed real estate salesperson in New York. She is devoted to her family and is a dedicated mother to daughter Allyson. She is also quite fond of the littlest member of the Zarin clan, Pomeranian, Miss Bossi.
In January, 2018, Bobby succumbed to cancer after a long and courageous battle. 2019 has been a turning point in Jill's life with the much-celebrated graduation of Allyson from Sotheby's Institute of Art in London and her expanding business empire into interior decor with the highly successful inaugural year of JillZarinRugs.
Jill is the first Housewife from NYC to set up a Ustream Channel where she can host live chats with her fans. For more updates and information sign up for Jill's newsletter at http://jillzarinrugs.com/ .
