Special thanks to Jim Covington for recording Senator Lourie’s remarks.
Senator Lourie was born and raised in Columbia and is the son of Susan and the late Senator Isadore Lourie. He and his wife Becky have two children and a feisty miniature schnauzer. His son and daughter attend the same public schools Joel attended over 30 years ago. Joel is a graduate of the University of South Carolina.
The Louries have deep roots in South Carolina as Joel’s grandfather opened the first Lourie’s Department Store in 1912. Joel and his family have been actively involved in the civic and business community in the Midlands for decades. Joel was elected to the House of Representatives in 1998 and the State Senate in 2004. He is following the footsteps of his father who served in the South Carolina Legislature for 28 years.
Joel Lourie carefully balances his time between his family, business and public service. In addition to working in the Senate, he is involved with many local boards and commissions. Throughout his career at the State House, he has been recognized by numerous organizations for his work in education, public safety and healthcare.
