Personal Interests
Jan is very proud of her three children, Matt, Mark & Jess and three grandchildren – Chance, Katherine and Cooper. She has spent most of her parental life urging her kids to join her for a game of Scrabble, but has begun to move on to influencing the next generation. Jan avoids housework by working in the yard on days off; her husband, Richard’s newest job, after retiring from a career in human resources is to hold down the fort and their unruly dog, Belle.
