Camille Kostek is an American model and entertainment reporter.
She is the daughter of Christina, a gym manager, and Alan, a contractor.
Camille’s paternal grandmother was Mary Jane Marcinowski (the son of Charles R. Marcinowski and Mary V. Rutkowski). Charles was the son of Sebastian J. “Seth” Marcinowski, who was Polish, and of Mary E. Gnatek, whose parents were Polish. Camille’s great-grandmother Mary was the daughter of Anton Rutkowski and Alexandra, who were Polish.
Camille’s maternal grandfather was Victor Alberto Decosta/DaCosta, Jr. (the son of Victor Alberto DaCosta, Sr. and Esther/Essie Louise Shaw). Camille’s grandfather Victor was born in New York, and lived on St. Thomas, Virgin Islands. He and his parents’ race was listed as “Negro” on U.S. Censuses. Camille’s grandfather’s family was from Jamaica, and subsequently moved through the Caribbean. Camille’s great-grandfather Victor was born in Panama, and was the son of Eustace Braganza DaCosta and Dorothea Helen Kirkpatrick. Esther was evidently from Costa Rica, and was possibly the daughter of William Shaw and Catherine Gow. The surname DeCosta in the Caribbean often comes from Sephardi Jewish/Portuguese Jewish settlement.
Camille’s maternal grandmother was named Mary Robinson.
