Background details of Samuel Lightner Cusick

Sam Cusick was born 30 years ago in Provo, Utah on 5th April 1994. His parents, Todd and Jennifer Jill Gillette Cusick raised him and his 3 siblings in Salt Lake City and they were a family of 5 until recently, in 2019 when Jennifer sadly passed away. His brothers Jacob and David and sister Anneka Cusick are all alive and well, although it seems like there isn’t much more to know about them, and that is because they remain largely low-key.

Samuel attended the Timpview High School and played footballer for the school team while he was there. He then got to Utah Valley University in 2010, where he studied Business Administration and General Management. He briefly attended Brigham Young University where he pursued a second degree in International Business Study, but he never completed the program as he transferred to another school. Samuel would later go on to enroll in Arizona University in 2016, obtaining a Master’s degree in Business Communications and Analytics, all by the end of 2017.

What does Samuel Lightner Cusick do for a Living?

Samuel Lightner is currently a businessman with a couple of investments tied to his name. The doting husband and father began navigating a career in the murky waters of the business world after leaving college in 2014. Later that year, he launched a web building company named FlyNyx. The company was designed to build and manage websites for small and medium-scale e-commerce websites. Although the company stopped operations the next year, the information remains on his LinkedIn bio.

Business it seems isn’t Samuel’s only area of expertise as the 30-year-old worked as an assistant football coach at his former high school, Timpview High School. The job however was short-lived as he only coached the team for about 6 months: From June 2014 to November 2014. At the moment, however, Samuel works as a project manager at the CMC Rock construction company in South Pelican Point, Utah.

He has also volunteered at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints as a full-time missionary, a role he has been carrying out since 2013. The former football coach has grown his Instagram page to nearly thirty thousand followers, and sometimes he posts pictures of himself at work.

How he met his wife Lindsay Arnold

It might come as a little surprise, and maybe like a fairytale also, but Samuel Cusick and Lindsay Arnold had always known each other – at least since they were teenagers. The two were high school sweethearts for years and not even fame or money could come between these two starstruck lovers. They continued dating even after they had both finished high school and famously got engaged while they were on vacation in Africa, on the 9th of December in 2014.

The ecstatic Lindsay made the revelation on her Instagram page saying, “just when I thought our day in Africa couldn’t get any better… We are engaged!!” Friends and fans alike trooped to the star’s Instagram page to send their good wishes. At the time of their engagement, they were both only 20 years old. Samuel isn’t the type to speak a lot, but Lindsay herself confessed that she had loved Sam since she was only 16 years old and was excited to spend the rest of her life with him.

Are Lindsay Arnold and Samuel Lightner Cusick still married?

On 18th June 2015, Samuel Cusick exchanged vows with the love of his life at the Salt Lake Temple of Mormon at exactly 10:30 a.m. Both were only 21 years old when they solemnly pledged their loyalty and love for each other with nearly 150 guests as witnesses. The bride was decked in a gorgeous, lace-trimmed, ballsy wedding gown, and she and her groom looked like the perfect couple as they walked together through the Sleepy Ridge estate.

As usual, the gorgeous Lindsay gushed over her wedding to Cusick saying,  “when people say their wedding day is the best day of their life they are not kidding. Everything from planning each little detail to experiencing the finished product made me the happiest girl in the world.” 

Both of them have continued to remain blissfully married and on Arnold’s Instagram, there are tons of pictures of both of them engaging in one outdoor activity or the other. They obviously enjoy each other’s company very much and if pictures are anything to go by, they intend to stay married for a long, long time.

Do they have kids?

It is usually expected for a married couple to immediately get to work with making babies but Samuel and Lindsay decided to take their time. Apart from both of them being extremely young when they got hitched, they were also extremely busy professionals in their respective fields.

Lindsay’s career as a dancer, in particular, had her moving across the country often, to participate in one dance competition or the other. And so it was a pleasant surprise when she made the announcement on Instagram that she and Samuel were going to become parents soon. The arrival of the new baby was announced in March 2020, and a baby shower was thrown for Lindsay by her family and friends in September later that year at the Wild Oak Venue in Utah.

On the 2nd of November 2020, Sam and Lindsay welcomed their first child, a beautiful daughter named Sage Jill Cusick. She was born a full week before her expected date through a Cesarian operation Because she was a breech baby. Thankfully, mother and daughter made it out safely. Little Sage Jill was named after Samuel’s mother – who passed away the previous year in 2019. She is only a year and four months old and is the couple’s first and only child at the moment.

What is Samuel Lightner Cusick’s net worth compared to his wife’s?

From working as a start-up owner to becoming a project manager at the CMC Rock, Cusick has established himself as a highly capable businessman, gathering plenty of experience in guiding people, writing business plans, and skillfully executing tricky business projects. Judging from the skills required to carry out all these jobs, it is clear that Samuel is making good money, possibly running into thousands of dollars per job.

However, his net worth has not been made public, as he seems to prefer keeping his earnings private. His wife, Lindsay, has no such need for privacy and her net worth is estimated to the tune of $2 million, as of 2021. To date, we do not know who is the richer of the two and we might never know… Unless Samuel Lightner Cusick chooses to publish his earnings one day.

Lindsay Arnold is a famous and well-known American choreographer, known especially for her multiple appearances on the reality show Dancing With The Stars.
