Born on June 11, 1957, in Brooklyn, New York City, Joan refers to herself as an Italian American of “half Sicilian and half Abruzzese” descent. Before meeting Ariana’s father, Edward Butera, she had a son named Frank James Michael Grande Marchione with Victor Louis Marchione, an Italian-American physician.

The CEO of Hose-McCann Communications, a provider of total communications solutions for use on land and at sea, Joan married Edward Butera in 1992 in Manhattan. They moved to Florida in 1993 when Joan was still pregnant with Ariana.

An American graphic designer, photographer, and artist, Edward Butera separated from Joan Grande in 2002 when Ariana was 8. He is also of Italian descent.
