Jessie Wile Stern ’60 – Silver Spring, MD

Since I retired from a 35-year career in medical photojournalism, I have pursued my hobby-turned-business in jewelery design and teaching (www.basicallybuttonsandbeads.com). I still Jazzercise four days a week, as I have for the past 38 years. My husband Marc and I have been married since 1962 and we have three grown children and five teenage grandchildren. Travel is a highlight of our lives. In 2013, I visited friends and relatives in Palm Springs, San Francisco, San Antonio, and the Canadian Rockies of Alberta. With Marc I explored the New England states looking for designer beads and photographing fall foliage. (October 2013)
