Jurrien Timber Family Background:

To start with, there is a past personal situation between the Dutch Defender and his father. Because of that, members of Jurrien Timber’s Family bear their maternal surname. Jurrien was supposed to stick with his Maduro surname. Rather, he chose Timber, a name from his mother’s family.

It is pertinent to note that Jurrien Timber’s Mum, Marilyn, is a single mother. She raised her five sons on her own, and in a highly Christian religious family. Among five of Marilyn’s sons, three of them (Dylan, & twins – Jurriën and Quinten) became professional footballers.

The Story of Jurrien Timber’s Mother:

Marilyn was born on Curaçao, a Dutch Caribbean island. Jurrien Timber’s Mum grew up in a strict Afro-Curaçaoan Catholic family of five children. They always went to church every Sunday. Marilyn, as a child, understood little of catholic rituals, but she was close to God.

Quincy Promes Childhood Story Plus Untold Biography Facts

As a child, Jurrien Timber’s Mum loved Christian songs. Through that, she became fond of music in general. Marilyn soon learnt how to dance and she became very good at it. Thanks to her athleticism and dance talent, she (in her youth) got the opportunity to go to Europe.

Marilyn Timber, alongside her dance group, travelled to the Netherlands and other Europe countries. They were to perform for a period of three months (in Europe) before heading back to their country, Curaçao. Along the line, the 22-year-old (Jurrien’s Mum) changed her mind about returning to her country.

Jurrien Timber’s Mum decided to continue her education in the Netherlands. She applied and got a scholarship to study Dancing in Amsterdam. Unfortunately, something went wrong with her Dance scholarship. In order to adjust to life, Marilyn began teaching Aerobics.

‘Losing my dance scholarship was a tough period for me, but thanks to God, I stood still.’

Marilyn once spoke about her early difficult months in the Netherlands. She found teaching Aerobics very exciting, a feat that made her decide to stay in the Netherlands. With no signs of leaving the dance sector, Marilyn decided to invite her boyfriend (who stayed in her home country) to come over.

The coming of Jurrien Timber’s Father (What actually went wrong?):

Marilyn, a strong woman of faith, found the courage to move on. After her divorce from the father of Christopher and Shamier, she decided to focus more on her job. Thankfully, Marilyn met someone in her dancing world, a man who would later become the father of Dylan, Jurrien, and Quinten Timber.

After Marilyn moved on from her first husband, she met another man. Through that man, she had Dylan and the twins (Jurrien and Quinten).

Suddenly, the father of Jurrien Timber (and his two brothers) decided he wanted a change in climate (a relocation to his homeland).

Jurrien Timber Education:

Without needing any help from their fathers, Marilyn ensured all her sons attend a Catholic school. She enrolled Jurrien and his twin brother (Quinten) at De Spits Primary school. This is a popular Catholic Elementary School located in Gemeente Bunnik, Utrecht, Netherlands.

While at school, Jurrien and Quinten always sat together in class. They would sometimes wear separate coloured sweaters to enable their teachers to distinguish them – as seen below. Back then, the Timber brothers belonged to group 8 of De Spits’ Primary school.

Did Jurrien Timber get good grades while at school?

According to Quinten, his twin brother, the answer is yes. Although Jurrien got good marks, it was his twin brother who studied more often. Quinten, while in school, loved the history subject and disliked mathematics (unlike Davy Klaassen). Both brothers never had time to proceed to higher education.

Career Buildup:

The quest to become professional footballers began in their Dutch hometown of Utrecht. From an early age, Jurriën Timber’s Mother enrolled him, his twin brother and his older brother (Dylan) at DVSU academy, Utrecht. That year was 2006, and Jurien was only four.

Matthijs de Ligt Childhood Story Plus Untold Biography Facts

All three Timber brothers choose Feyenoord because that was easier for their mother to pay a close eye on them. During our period at Feyenoord, Jurrien, Quinten and Dylan would sometimes have to be at the club at 8:00 am. Marilyn ensured zero lateness from her boys.

While at Feyenoord, the bigger Timber (Dylan) often saw himself as the victim of the unbreakable tandem of his twin brothers. Back then, it was always about the two of them (Jurien and Quinten) and poor Dylan was often alone. According to Dylan;

If Jurriën wanted to watch something on television, I would join in and watch with him.

Then, if I wanted to see something, Quinten would ensure that we stay and watched only what Jurriën wanted.

During Jurrien’s youth career days, some of the boys on their team were jealous of the huge attention directed towards him and Quinten. Back then, for the three Timber boys, their daily lives were like a triangle – training, school, and sleeping. The boys also spent more time with the rest of their families.

Mixing School Football:

Playing for a top soccer academy like Feyenoord means Jurrien and Quinten had to leave other things behind. One of which was a very important school tournament. Back then, the Timber twins were top performers in that tournament, as they once reached the semi-finals for two years in a row.

On a particular occasion, Jurrien and Quinten had a problem before another semi-final. The boys had a serious match with their academy (Feyenoord) on that afternoon. Because the Twins were important for Feyenoord, the club refused to let them go for their school competition.

Explaining in an interview about how she manages her son’s faith, Jurrien’s Mum Marilyn, once said;

I made it very practical that we have a family app, where I share Bible texts with my sons several times a day.
Upon receiving my message, they then send a thumbs up or ‘nice, mama’ back.  Sometimes they send a response as a personal message.
I always encourage all my boys to pray themselves, to ask God for what they need and above all, to give many thanks to God for what they already have.
Lately, just before a competition, one of my sons ask to be anointed with oil, the symbol of the Holy Spirit, to have extraordinary power on the pitch. My greatest wish for now is that all the boys are baptized soon.
