    Jerome Cranston is a spouse, father, and brother to two surviving siblings and a son. He is also the grandchild of maternal grandparents one of who originated from a tribal community in what is now Nepal and the other who was Anglo-Burmese.

He holds a PhD (University of Manitoba), Master of Education (University of Lethbridge) and Bachelor of Education and Bachelor of Science (University of Alberta).
