Who are Adam Thielen parents?
Pete Thielen (father)
Date of birth: circa 1956
Adam is a happy person, as he enjoyed the endless support of his parents in his late teens when he decided to become an NFL player.
His father, Peter Ray Thielen, put lots of effort into his youngest son to fulfill his dream. He played football, baseball, and other sports games with Adam in the backyard of their house. He noticed, that Adam had great hands and could jump rather well. But the boy was not as strong and fast as his peers. No wonder, because Adam, whose birthday is in August, was the youngest in his class.
Later Pete told in his interview, that his decision to send him to school earlier than his peers, was good as it made Adam try harder to be as fast and strong as his classmates.
At first, Pete didn’t take his son’s intention to become a professional athlete. But when he saw Adam’s score at the end of his collegiate career in Mankato, he invited Adam for lunch. Pete asked his son if he was strong and fast enough for NFL. When Adam confirmed, he wanted to try knowing that he could lose, Pete paid for his son’s trip to Dallas to take part in the NFL draft.
Although Adam wasn’t drafted at that time, Pete supported his son. And soon Thielen Jr was signed by the Vikings. Pete boasted into tears when he saw his son on the court with the Vikings for the first time.
Adam’s father was born and raised in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota in the family of Leonard and Estella Thielen. He attended the same school as his son did. After that, he continued his education at Institute for Advanced Conservative Studies. For 30+ years he has been working for Foltz Buildings LLC.
Jayne Thielen (mother)
Date of birth: circa 1960
Adam’s mother always believed in her son’s dream to play for NFL. She used to tell in her interview, that Adam ‘always had a plan” and tried his best to keep to it.
She noticed his talent as an athlete when Adam played golf as a kid. Mrs. Thielen was responsible for the junior golf program at Detroit Lakes. Her son played so well, that even many adult players lost to him.
Of course, she felt happy for her son, when he was signed by the Vikings, his first professional team. But she was even happier when he tied the knot with Caitlin. Jayne calls her daughter-in-law “my girl”.
Jayne has resided in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota since her earliest years. She was educated at Sebeka High School. With her husband of many years Pete, she raised three kids.
