Charles Kushner, born in 1954, is a New Jersey property tycoon and ex-convict. In 2005, he stepped down as head of his namesake company, then based in Florham Park, NJ, after he was sentenced to two years in prison. Kushner pled guilty to filing false tax returns, making illegal campaign donations, and witness tampering. His son Jared Kushner, who took over as principal and public face at Kushner Companies, made a name for himself by buying the New York Observer, the salmon-colored weekly paper in July 2006, and marrying Ivanka Trump.

Kushner Sr., who goes by Charlie, founded Kushner Companies in 1985, using the assets of his father’s construction firm. Charlie’s parents, Joseph and Rae, Holocaust survivors from Poland arrived in New York in 1949. In addition to Jared, Charlie and his wife Seryl have another son, Josh, and two daughters, Dara and Nicole. Kushner’s conflict with his older brother Murray, sister Esther, and Esther’s husband exacerbated and perhaps triggered Charles Kushner’s run-in with the law. He hired a prostitute to seduce his brother-in-law and videotape it to retaliate against his sister, bringing him the witness tampering charge, as Esther was a witness for the prosecution on other charges. For his crimes, he spent sixteen months in prison and was released in March 2006. Kushner was a major donor to the Democratic Party, most notably to former New Jersey Governor Jim McGreevey, and a philanthropist focused on Jewish causes.
