Jean and Don moved to Stockton in 1965 to open their first McDonald's franchise, which she was still involved with until her passing.
She was well known for her generosity, kindness and endless energy. Jean's hard work, perseverance and diligence served her well, as they continued to open new franchises in San
Joaquin County. She was a strong leader with a good business sense and she touched all whom she met.

She was also on the committee for the original Ronald McDonald House at Stanford. Jean was very active in the San Joaquin County community including: Hanot Foundation, ARC of San Joaquin, Omega Nu, Ladybugs, and the Adult Activity Center. She was a huge fan of the UOP Tigers basketball team, often traveling to their out of town games.
She was a loving wife, a caring mother and a doting grandmother who loved to spend time with her family. Her six grandchildren affectionately called her "Gogo", as she was always on the go, especially when she spent time with them in Aptos.
She will be missed and is survived by her husband Don, and two children: Nancy and Craig (Cathleen). Jean is also survived by her grandchildren Carli, Meghan, and Dylan Schrader and Corey (Jennifer), Brad, and Taylor Johnson.
