To begin with, Steve and his three siblings were raised in Chicago by their parents Stanley, a police officer and Jeanette, a beauty school instructor. He was educated at Lane Technical High School after which he served in the US Marines (1982 – 1989). In 1990, he followed his father’s footsteps and started working in the Chicago Police Department, completing eleven years service. Serving in these forces added to the net worth of Steve, although they were also very important for building confidence and learning to reach set goals.
Subsequently, Steve took the position of director of security for “The Jerry Springer Show” (1994 – 2007). For some time he did both jobs as a police officer and director of security, but then resigned from the police and worked only in security. It should be mentioned that he broke into the security work as well in order to be able to participate at the Maryland Wrestling Championships as a professional wrestler. Later, he was invited as the guest of the show “Check, Please!” (2005).
Getting back to his television appearances, he landed some roles as an actor, too. Steve Wilkos appeared in the situation comedy series “Between Brothers” (1997), in the sitcom “The Wayans Bros” (1999) and voiced “The Simpsons” (1999).
