The Crusher family consisted of Jack Crusher, his wife Beverly Crusher (née Howard), and their son Wesley Crusher, as well as Jack's parents. During a holo-recording Jack made when Wesley was only 10 weeks old, he mentioned seeing his father and mother in the child's face. (TNG: "Family")

The Pocket TNG novel Losing the Peace revealed that Jack's father was distant, having never wanted a family.

Jean-Luc Picard was a close friend of the Crusher family, something Rear Admiral Brand was aware of when she personally informed Picard that Cadet Wesley Crusher had been involved in an accident while training at Starfleet Academy in a flight trainer in 2368. (TNG: "The First Duty")

A deleted scene from "Family" also mentioned Jack's grandfather Richard Wesley Crusher. The same scene would have also established that among Wesley's ancestors were scholars, explorers, artists with his great-great-grandfather having been a painter with a work in the Prado. Jack had several ancestors whom he considered "heroes": one ancestor fought in the American Civil War – on the Confederate side – in the opening battle of the conflict at Bull Run. Another ancestor died in the surprise attack on Station Salem-One. However, there had also been a Crusher who was a horse thief on Nimbus III.
Several ancestors of Beverly Crusher have also been named, including her parents Isabel and Paul Howard, her grandmother Felisa Howard, and distant ancestor Jessel Howard.
