Tony Dokoupil Wiki: Age, Early Life, Parents, and EducationTony is the son of Ann and Anthony Edward Dokoupil.

However, this way of life began crumbling when it was discovered that his both parents were drug addicts and worked with Columbian drug cartels. His father left the family when Tony was ten years old, and from then on he was raised by his mother, with whom he moved to Maryland. Stricken by his parents’ mistakes, Tony managed to get away from the problems and continue his education. After finishing high school, Tony enrolled at George Washington University School of Business in 1999, from which he graduated in marketing and communications, obtaining a double-major in those subjects four years later.
