Judy grew up in Wheaton, Illinois and met John while they both attended the local high school where they started dating when Judy was a sophomore and John was a senior.

After they’d both graduated, the couple moved to NYC so Belushi could chase his showbiz dreams, and they married in 1976.

Of course, John’s career took off … and Judy appeared alongside him in other projects like “Animal House” and the original ‘Blues Brothers’ film.

Pisano and Belushi were married until he overdosed on a combination of cocaine and heroin in 1982. She later married film producer Victor Pisano in 1990. We’ve reached out to members of Judy’s family … so far, no word back.
