Jean currently serves as secretary to the National Stearman Fly-In Board of Directors. Jean grew up on a farm in Warren County. She has been married to her husband Dennis for 50 years on June 10, 2022. Since Dennis worked for Burlington Northern RR and Amtrak for 39 years, Jean is more familiar with trains than planes, but being on the Board she has quickly learned quite a bit about a Stearman. Dennis and Jean have two children and four grandsons. They spend a lot of time at the basketball court watching two of their grandsons play basketball. Being on the National Stearman Fly-In Board has been a fun and exciting experience for Jean meeting new people and making new friends.
