"Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don't wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future. Think how really precious is the time you have to spend, whether it's at work or with your family. Every minute should be enjoyed and savored. "
—Russo family quote.
The Russo Family is a wizarding family that has it's roots back in Italy (and possibly back to Ancient Rome) who at some point emigrated to United States, more precisely New York City. It's younger generations had also Latino heritage.

The Russo Family does have alliences. Jerry and Theresa are on greatt terms with the Hudbars. Jerry is greatt friends with Joshua Dunbar while Theresa is best friends with hufflepuffer Carole Hudson.

Not only the parents can get along with each other, even the kids does have nice bonds. Justin is best friends with Finn Hudson and Max best friend Liam Dunbar is dating Alex.

Like the Hudson family, the Russo's doesn't share a good bond with the Malfoys either. Jerry and Theresa always stood up for Carole when Lucius showed up.


Its earliest known member is Ignacius Russo, a wizard that made the first joke book on giants. Two generations later his great grandson, Duke, would marry a sorceress named Rose. They would have three children: Kelbo, Megan and Jerry Russo, the three of them were wizards. Jerry fell in love with a mortal named Theresa, and because wizards can't marry mortals, Jerry gave his powers to Kelbo causing a grudge with their sister Megan because she wanted Jerry to give his powers to her and her powers were minimized when Kelbo got the powers. Jerry and Theresa got married and have three children: Justin, Alex and Max Russo. They are wizards being trained in power by their father, an ex-wizard. They are the main family of the series but the mainest character of the series Alex because she is in nearly every scene in every episode.
