Jean Marc Pingris, Jr. (born October 16, 1981) is a Filipino professional basketball player in the PBA for the San Mig Super Coffee Mixers. He is a versatile 6-foot-6forward-center who can post up, and block shots. He is married to actress Danica Sotto, daughter of Vic Sotto and Dina Bonnevie. They have two children, a son named Jean Michael, and a daughter named Anielle Micaela.
Born in Pozorrubio, Pangasinan, Philippines, Pingris started his career in the PBA at the 2004 PBA Draft which featured James Yap, Gary David, Ranidel de Ocampo, Rich Alvarez and Nelbert Omolon. Pingris was drafted by the FedEx Express with the 3rd overall pick, but was quickly traded to the Purefoods TJ Hotdogs along with Egay Billones. It is with Purefoods that Pingris established his reputation as perhaps the best defender in the PBA today.
