The daughter of medical missionaries, Jean was home-schooled in China as a child, and attended high school in Manteca, CA. She is still active with Stanford Associates as an emeritus member of the Board of Governors. She also remains active on the board of Cap & Gown, and often wears the lapel pins she has on in the photograph: a ruby-studded “S” for 40 years of volunteer service to Stanford, a Stanford Centennial pin, her Class of ’47 pin, and a Stanford Associates pin. Jean was an employee of the Stanford Office of Development for over 20 years, where she got the Parents Program up and running.
Jean’s favorite quote is, “Take your cookies when they’re passed.” It’s also the title of her memoir. She currently lives in Sunnyvale, CA.
