Jean was born in Haverhill, MA on May 1, 1959. She attended high school at Pinkerton Academy in New Hampshire and later attended Farleigh Dickinson University.

Jean loved being a mother and a grandmother. She was an animal lover, great baker, liked gardening, enjoyed arts and crafts, and really loved people, especially children and older people. She had a gift for making others happy.
