Casey’s mother, Caitlyn is one of the most recognizable faces in the American entertainment spectrum and even on others. Among many credits, the most for which people recognize her are a former Olympic champion, a television reality star, and an advocate for LGBTQ rights.
And with her publicly coming out in April 2015, there always has been an interest of people diverted towards her and more often than not even on her family members. While Caitlyn’s daughters from his ex-wife Chris in addition to his former stepdaughters, the famous Kardashians are among the headlines every hour, there are more children from the I Am Cait star who though are a bit shy in comparison to their step-siblings.
Unlike her Kardashian and Jenner half-siblings, Casey is far more private and doesn’t bother with public fame to any extent. Contrary to her mother, Cassandra doesn’t have that much to say for the news hounds as she generally remains buttoned-up to them. Marino, in any case, has sat up for q and a’s though only on a few occasions. Cassandra in addition has always been within the circle of the Kardashians and Jenner’s side of the family. Learn more about her; is she actually close to the Kardashian-Jenner sisters, her somewhat complicated relationship with her mother, Caitlyn, her social media life, her marital front, children, and others.

What Does Cassandra Marino Do?
Cassandra’s line of profession apparently has something to do with house building; she presumably is an interior designer.

Cassandra Is The Mother Of Three Children With Her Husband, Michael Marino
Cassandra is married to Michael Marino with whom she shares three children, Francesca, Isabella, and Luke.
While Casey’s husband, Michael, also appears alongside Kardashian and Jenner’s get-together, similar to his wife, he too is considerably reclusive to social media theatrics. Further Marino is also yet to reveal how or when she met her husband as well as their wedding details.
The couple though seems to have been in a relationship for a long time as apparent from Marina’s Facebook posts.
Cassandra Marino Siblings Including Kardashians And Jenners
In addition to plenty of half-siblings, Cassandra has one elder brother, Burt who was born in Sep 1978. He is the first child of Caitlyn, who has now three children of his own with his partner, Valerie Pitalo. Cassandra’s elder brother, Burt is a professional truck racer. He apparently has loved racing since his father, Bruce (Caitlyn) took him to Karting as a child.
The other sibling includes Brandon Jenner who people might remember from his brief appearances on Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
Caitlyn had Brandon with her second wife, Linda Thompson whom she had married after divorcing Cassandra’s mother, Chrystie.
Caitlyn’s third child and Casey’s first half-sibling, Brandon is a musician, singer, and songwriter. He is also quite popular on Instagram with around 1.3 million followers.

Brody, too, is famous on Instagram with over 3 million people following him.
Her last two half-siblings are the supermodel, Kendall Jenner, and the former youngest self-made billionaire, Kylie Jenner.
Speaking of siblings, one cannot miss Marino’s ex-step sisters, Khloe, Kim, and Kourtney with whom Casey apparently has been on good terms since childhood.
Cassandra Had A Strained Relationship With Her Mother Caitlyn
Caitlyn has always had a bit of a complicated relationship with her close ones be it her daughters (Kardashian and Jenner), her ex-wives, or his older children. And Casey is no exception either.
Caitlyn and her first daughter evidently were bitter for years especially when Casey was growing up. In recent years, however, things are reportedly good between the two.
In a rare interview with People in 2016, Casey, while talking about her relationship with her father-turned-mother, Caitlyn, said,
My relationship with Caitlyn is much better than with Bruce, but we still have a lot of work to do.
Cassandra likewise revealed while the two didn’t talk for years, they eventually started seeing each other every couple of weeks and also talked on the phone. And for that, Cassandra said she was grateful.
She though stated there is still some work left to do.
Marino Relationship With Caitlyn Was Better After Jenner’s Transition Into A Woman
Of her relationship with her mother, Caitlyn, Marino once said that she was trying harder each day, and the softness that the multimillionaire transgender woman showed to her after her transition was something new to her.
Marino added her mother had become happier and more appreciative of her family ever since her transformation.
I think part of that is that when someone is happier, they are just nicer,
said the tall blonde daughter of Caitlyn Jenner. Marino noted her mother, Caitlyn after the transition became interested in talking about girly things with her.
Casey further said how she was really looking forward to exploring more of that with her mother.
Marino Is Also A Regular Of Caitlyn Jenner’s Girls’ Night Out
Vanity Fair reports the first time Cassandra met her mother Caitlyn was during a girls’ night, a gathering the former decathlete began hosting as part of her adaptation.
By the next month, Caitlyn had made her daughter, Casey a regular part of her group. To that, Marino said she felt honored as the gatherings were really intimate.
I am pleased with how beautiful and comfortable she seems every time I see her. She seems to be having a lot of fun with it.
said the LA-born designer on her mother’s new social life.
Caitlyn in the meantime said she was also trying to mend her relationships with her other older children though the former Playgirl cover model stated that was going to be a continuous and effort full process.
With Vanity Fair, Caitlyn admitted she wasn’t present at Cassandra’s birth. At the time, the ex-husband of Chris Jenner was in the middle of his divorce from Marino’s mother, Chrystie.
The other reason for which Caitlyn says she couldn’t come to her daughter’s birth was that she back then was also dealing with an identity crisis.
It was especially the 80s throughout which Cassandra’s then father, Bruce remained absent from her and her siblings’ lives. It apparently took three decades for Caitlyn’s older children to understand why their mother stayed away from their lives.
Cassandra Marino Was Active On Facebook Until Recently
While Marino neatly remains private on Instagram and even on Twitter, until late 2021, the 42-year-old was quite flowing on Facebook. On her now seemingly inactive halted social media stand, Casey has shared a handful of pictures of her husband and her children whilst again not being too revealing about her personal sides.
Is Marino As Rich As Her Famous Siblings Kardashian Or Her Mother, Caitlyn?
Considering her evidently toned-down life far less talked about than her famous mother and half-siblings, although not confirmed, it is only presumable that Casey’s net worth is anything but anywhere as close to as her celebrity relatives.
To have perspective, Marino’s reality star mother has an estimated net worth of over $100million; not to mention, over, on the other hand, her ex-step sisters and half-siblings, the Kardashians and the Jenners have a combined wealth of easily $2 billion and counting. Specifically, in light of that number, it seems a bit far-fetched to wonder and assume, that Cassandra too might be rich in the ten figures league. It nonetheless may be the case that Casey’s net worth is at least in the region of hundreds of thousands of dollars or possibly even millions.
