Here is a brief description of the last 50 years of my boring life. After graduating from Maryland I was commissioned as a Marine Corps Officer, and moved to San Diego. During this time I picked up a MBA from U.S C., was in the Far East and returned home in one piece. I then decided to go to dental school at Maryland, went back in the Navy on a scholarship, got out and went on to become an endodontist.  I had a practice in Towson, until 2000, when I sold it to the woman who had been working with me.  She asked me to stay on part time for a short while and I am still there. The Maryland winters got to much for me so we built a home on the water in Highland Beach, Fl. (between Boca Raton and Del ray Beach).  I started playing a lot of golf and fishing and after a couple of years became tired of the genteel life and found a young endodontist in Boca Raton who needed help a few days a month. So now, I work in Towson every Tues and Wed and in Boca Raton every other Thur and Fri.  I have been doing this for 8 years and like the pace.  I feel it keeps me young.  
I just celebrated my 44th wedding anniversary with my wife Amalia. We have two sons, 4 grand kids who all live in L.A.  We have traveled the world several times and now spend about 6 weeks in LA and split the rest between Md. and Fl. 
The most exciting thing that happened too me is a Star Wars metaphor.  I saw the Dark Side, but the Force was with me.  Last August I had an unwitnessed cardiac arrest at a gym in Boca.  The young man called 911 started CPR and hit me with paddles with no luck.  A police Lt. heard the call and arrived and repeated it, no luck my heart was still stopped.  Finally the EMTs arrived, shot me with epinephrine and my heart started.  I was on life support for 2 days and the prognosis was extremely poor.  After 3 days I started to respond and the rest is history.  The Force was with me.

Senior Public Health Advisor, NIH Single Again 3 2016-06-28 17:24:38
Hi All --
 
I’m grateful to look both back in time and forward into the future. Here’s my journey …
 
After WJ, I went to the University of Pennsylvania in Philly – majored in psychology and took lots of liberal arts classes, without much thought to a career.  Amazingly when I look back, I got married at the end of my junior year. He started medical school in Philly while I completed my senior year and a Masters degree at Penn.   I taught fifth grade in the city of Philadelphia, resulting in my being impressed by teachers the rest of my life. In 1972 he graduated from medical school, and we drove from Philly to an internship year in Arizona.

Over the next several years, I traveled both peaks and valleys that hadn't been on my original map, by any stretch of my imagination.  
 
My husband abruptly left and moved to California, and after the divorce in 1974 I moved back to the DC area.  I became a legislative aide to the new director of the heart institute at NIH – getting to see first-hand how Congress, committees, and staffers operate. I've followed politics ever since – a mix of political science, media, sociology, communication, values, culture, history, power, policy, and more – some great, some ... well, I'm sure you know.
 
In 1977 I re-married, to a lawyer I’d dated for many months and lived with for a year, while one job at NIH kept leading to another.  After 10 years I left NIH for consulting, thinking I would have more time and flexibility for family life with my husband and by then my daughter and son. I ended up being the DC-based liaison for an Australian-based company that invented the first cochlear implant for the profoundly deaf. I never made it to Australia (still a goal), but the work was inspiring.  Other consulting years included helping NIH transition to those new-fangled computer machines, and doing a fellowship with the Innovation Network.
 
Another son also came into our family during those years, at one point leading to having a kindergartener and two high school students at the same time. (There's a book in there somewhere ...) 
 
In 2000 I went back to NIH, where I’ve been working full-time ever since. In 2003 my marriage unexpectedly ended; parenting and career continued. I’ve loved each new opportunity I’ve had at NIH, including developing partnerships with mental health organizations, cancer advocacy groups, and a national consortium for workplace wellness.
 
Now my children are all grown, doing well, and spread from coast to coast. I’m super-grateful to be healthy and have built a good life with family, friends, work, and many enjoyable  interests. I’m planning to retire from NIH in early 2017, and have even started to date again … so if you know any guys who would like to share life’s adventures with kindness, resourcefulness, trustworthiness, and humor, feel free to let me know :-)   I wish you all health, happiness, and good spirit !   (janejacobs36@yahoo.com / 240-498-0553)

Retired Married 6 2016-08-01 19:52:57
I'm pretty certain we didn't realize that we were such a privileged group of kids, attending one of the best schools in the country, growing up in the Washington DC area during the 60's.  The different paths we took, the trials and errors, the successes I read about in the bios confirms the fact that we had an amazing platform from which to launch our lives. At the 50th I saw so many faces I remembered (alas the names often failed me) and I realized that I really only played my way through high school.  School was never very important to me but I was compelled to study enough not to embarrass myself between my 2 genious brothers. 

I realized college wasn't making me happy so I went off to fly the skies of United Airlines for a couple of years. Then marriage to Ray Stangleland took me to Cleveland. While Ray was at Case Western Reserve Med School, I began a career in retail where I was a buyer in Designer Sportwear and loved travel to markets in Europe. 

After our divorce, I moved downtown to begin an exciting single life of travel.  3 days after moving into my new aprtment, I met my next door neighbor and a year later we were married! So much for making my own plans, when God had something else in mind for me.  Our daughter Regan was born 2 years later and we moved to Denver.  

While Charlie ably supported us as VP Trust Officer in Banking, I moved through several jobs from Designer Clothing Buyer to Personnel Management in the Oil and Gas industry, to Administrative Manager of a small manufacturing company, to Exectuive Assistant to the President of Einstine's Bagles, and then following my boss to assist in developing a new company taking the lead in the Cosmocuitcal industry to, at long last, early retirement in 1999 when we moved to Henderson, NV. 

However, retirement only lasted long enough for a 3 week trip to Europe. I joined the staff of a new church plant. This is the job I loved the most of all the ones I've had and was blessed to stay for the next 10 years! 

A quick explanation about the "6" cihildren: Charlie brought 5 from a previous marriage.  After his divorce, their mother married and took the kids with her to Australia. One by one, they returned and have sought him out to reconnect and we are overjoyed to include them and our precious grandchildren in our blended family. 

Now we live in Gilbert, AZ (near Phoenix) and are true desert rats; loving the daily sunshine. We hike, golf, swim, enjoy a wonderful group of friends, most of all we love to travel. On our own, we've driven throughout Europe, Spain, and Ireland. We've enoyed several scuba dive trips to the Caymans. Through some amazing tours, we've stood on the Great Wall in China, sailed the Danube, spent a week at a cooking school in Abruzzo, Italy, attended a general assembly of Pope Francis in St. Peter's Square, and safaried in the Serengeti! We have a trip to the Holy Lands on the calendar for this coming November.

One of my favorite quotes is from Patrick Dennis in "Auntie Mame": "Life is a banquet but most poor bastards are starving to death!" Well, it's safe to say, "Life with Charlie keeps me well fed!"
