When I asked if you remembered your Jan Plans, several of you responded. * Sonia Turcotte Fois remembers spending sophomore Jan Plan in Mexico. Her son, Andrew, who is majoring in business and minoring in film at NYU, was in Florence, Italy, this year for his January term. * Tom Eyman remembers hiking up the ski trails at Sugarloaf because there was no snow. His older daughter graduates from Bates this spring, and his youngest two are at Smith. * Lisa McDonough O’Neil worked at the Morning Sentinel and actually had her own byline! Lisa recently started an executive-recruiting consulting business focusing on pharmaceuticals and R & D in the food and beverage industry. * In September Deb Clark Nelson and Kathy McCulloch Wade spent a week in Barcelona, where they drank lots of cava, sampled the local seafood, and relived their junior year abroad. * Jamie Hansman started a small investment management firm about 20 years ago, and he’s still at it. He lives in Duxbury, Mass., and has a daughter who’s a junior at Harvard, another who’s a freshman at BC, and a son in high school. Jamie sent along a picture of him, Elliott Pratt, and a host of others from our era at the service for Sam Koch ’79. You can see it on our class Facebook page. * After 14 years, Becky Brunner-Peters left Credit Suisse and is now head of legal and compliance at Vontobel Swiss Wealth Advisors in Zurich. Her daughter just started at the University of St. Gallen (Switzerland), studying law and economy. * Ali Domar’s seventh book was due to be published in January. It’s a stress-reduction guide for pregnant women. Her daughter started at Hamilton in the fall. Y Mark Garvin, president of the Tree Care Industry Association, was at a conference in Palm Springs in January and ran into the new president of the board of the American Society of Consulting Arborists, Barb Neal. * Inventor and engineer John Sylvan was honored by the Milton (Mass.) Foundation for Education as an outstanding graduate of the Milton public school system. John and Peter Dragone ’79, believing there was a need for a single-brew coffee system, started the company Keurig. John lives in Needham with his wife and four kids and is currently working at his new startup company, Zonbak, hoping to forever alter the way people heat their homes. * On a terribly sad note, Rev. Jane Dibden was killed in a tragic automobile accident this January. Jane was pastor of two churches in the Oklahoma Panhandle. She leaves behind a husband and five children. Jane would have been touched to know how many of our classmates wrote to me expressing their sadness and shock. We were all lucky to have known a woman of such great faith and innate goodness. We’ll remember Jane and other members of our class at our reunion, June 5-7. I hope to see you all there.
