Richard Mondzak
May 29, 1962 — July 31, 2016
Richard Mondzak, a private chef whose passion for his craft was only exceeded by his love for his family and friends, passed away on July 31, 2016 at the age of 54.
Richard was born in Fort Ord, California, on May 29, 1962. He enriched all through his heart's work, the manifestation of the good in humanity, deep friendships, his love and legacy of grace, generosity and mischievousness. His primary years were spent in San Rafael, California and later in Sacramento. In 1989 Richard settled into Belvedere where he resided for the past 27 years.
Mr. Mondzak began his culinary career at Wolff's, the highly regarded French restaurant in Sacramento, and Mount View Hotel in Napa Valley. He also catered private events in Napa Valley and was discovered and hired by the Perkins family from Belvedere as their personal chef. Richard quickly became a part of the family.
Richard could always be found making friends in every corner of the globe, sharing his love for cooking, reading, entertaining, and making memories with all who crossed his path. Mr. Mondzak cooked for Kings of countries, Presidents of capital, the famous, the wealthy, and surely added extra ingredients to dishes he prepared for those he loved and cared for so deeply. Everyone who knew him will miss his generous, kind, gentle, sweet and considerate soul. 
He was preceded in death by his father, retired US Army Lt. Colonel Joseph Mondzak, maternal grandparents Mr. & Mrs. James Beavers, Junction City, Kansas, paternal grandparents Mr. & Mrs. Joseph Mondzak, Phillipsburg, New Jersey. 
Richard is survived by his mother Sherril Mondzak-Proctor, brother David, Junction City, KS, sister Denise Souza, niece Audrey Souza Gray and family, Platte City, MO, stepmother Jan Peterson-Mondzak, and stepsister Kami Peterson of Lincoln, Ca, along with extended family, colleagues, dear friends, and his beloved 4-legged companion "Perky Perkins".

Personal Finance: Sacramentan went from math nerd to Fed President

By Claudia Buck (cbuck@sacbee.com)

SAN FRANCISCO – He's not a household name like Ben Bernanke. And he'd easily pass down a city street unrecognized.

But as an economist, John C. Williams holds one of the most prestigious and powerful jobs in the country.

Brainy, amiable and relatively young, Williams presides as president and CEO of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, the biggest and perhaps busiest of the Fed's 12 regional banks.

From his 12th-floor corner office on Market Street, he's got a sweeping view of the Bay Bridge – along with a sweeping perspective of the nation's and the world's economies.

And he's well aware of the direct impact that the Fed's decisions on economic policies have on all of us.

"It doesn't matter if you're a Wall Street titan or working a regular job," said the 50-year-old economist. "Even though we're four years past the worst part of the recession, there's still a lot of worry and concern. And it affects us all."

In a recent interview over Peet's coffee in his paneled office, Williams touched on everything from global economics to his Sacramento boyhood. For someone who works in a world of billions and trillions ("You'll never hear the word millions from me," he jokes) and within a heavily fortified building guarded by armed federal officers, he's refreshingly down-to-earth.

Describing his childhood in Sacramento's River Park neighborhood, Williams admits that he was a "math nerd – but in a good way." He liked Monopoly, Little League and "Star Wars." As a teen, he invented his own fantasy board games.

Growing up, his family's dinner table conversation often swirled around politics and current events. His dad, Robert Williams, was legislative adviser to four politically diverse governors, from Edmund G. Brown Sr. to George Deukmejian.

His parents, and an older brother who works at Intel, still live in Sacramento.

Looking back, Williams says those family conversations sparked an interest in nonpartisan, public policy work, similar to how he views his role today at the Federal Reserve.

He's a Phi Beta Kappa who powered through three economics degrees – at UC Berkeley, the London School of Economics and Stanford University. But his fascination with economics got started in his very first Econ 1 class at Berkeley in 1980.

"By far, the hardest econ class I ever took was at Berkeley," he says, mainly because it forced him and his classmates to wrap their brains around economic concepts of how the world works: incentives, taxation, supply and demand.

While he and many of his fellow students struggled over theory, he says, eventually there was a light-bulb moment.

"It all started to make sense. To me, economics uses a lot of math but it also talks about how human beings behave and interact. Somehow it all clicked in my mind."

Berkeley's current Econ 1 professor, Martha Olney, pays close attention to the Federal Reserve's actions. She's met Williams, heard his speeches and followed his votes on the Federal Reserve's operating committee, which meets eight times a year to adjust U.S. monetary policy.

"The role of the bank presidents is, among other things, to have their finger on what is happening to the economy of their regional district and to convey that to the rest of the board," says Olney. Having watched Williams from afar, she observes, "he seems to be doing a fine job."

Williams' father, the retired state attorney, says his son has a unique ability to relate to people. "One of his greatest strengths is his ability to deal with anybody, to handle people in any circumstance, from any walk of life. He understands the value of other people's work, no matter what their (job) is."

A researcher at heart, the younger Williams has published more than 50 professional papers, some with chewy titles like "Robust Estimation and Monetary Policy With Unobserved Structural Change."

Perhaps fittingly, one of his research specialties is "monetary policy under uncertainty and imperfect information."

It's a perfect academic recipe for unsettled times and one that Williams embraces.

One of the Fed's primary roles is to set policies that achieve two main goals, maximum employment and price stability. But, "How do you make a decision where three Nobel Prize-winning economists come to three completely different conclusions?" Williams asks.

Dealing with economic uncertainties is a constant. "But today, given that we're in uncharted waters, doing policies that we don't have as much experience with, it's even more true."

He says economists have to rely on the best estimates they have to make their decisions, but always be willing to change, adapt or delete policies that no longer work.

For the Federal Reserve, that decision-making takes place largely behind closed doors at its every-six-weeks monetary policy meetings. The 19 participants – the 12 bank presidents like Williams, plus the seven-member board of governors chaired by Ben Bernanke – come from diverse backgrounds: government, academia, business. Without live cameras, Williams says, there's a free-flowing debate that's candid, polite and nonpartisan.

"I honestly do not know the political affiliations of people in the room. It's not about politics. Some have more conservative or liberal views. But it's startling how narrow our focus is: How's the economy doing and where is it going? How are our policies calibrated to best achieve our objectives: maximum employment and price stability? … That has nothing to do with whether you're Republican, independent or Democrat."

In the last few years, the Fed has taken some unconventional steps, such as "quantitative easing." It's now buying up to $85 billion a month in mortgage-backed securities and long-term Treasurys to keep interest rates low and stimulate the economy.

He acknowledges the "difficult trade-offs" to that strategy, namely that savings accounts, CDs and money-market funds earn almost nothing.

But the overall goal is to "speed the economy back to normal. … If we weren't lowering interest rates as aggressively as we are now, my worry is the economy wouldn't get enough momentum to get us back to normal."

He and his wife, Audrey Lyndon, a UC San Francisco nursing school professor, live with their two teenage sons in the Bay Area. For security reasons, he declines to say exactly where he lives.

He says the Federal Reserve, where he started his working career as a research economist in 1994, is a complex structure that's hard for anyone to grasp. But he credits Bernanke for making a greater effort at communicating "who the Fed is and what we do."

Williams promotes the Fed's consumer outreach efforts, which include teacher training, bank tours and social media. "I don't tweet, but the bank does."

While federal tax cut extensions earlier this month averted a leap off the fiscal cliff, it only "kicked the can a couple months down the road," says Williams, who says the tough decisions still lie ahead with Congress and the president.

"It's striking that every single economist – whether in the congressional budget office, in academia or elsewhere – all agree that federal fiscal policies are unsustainable over the next 10 to 20 years. … They need to change taxes and spending. Until we have a long-term fiscal solution … the uncertainty is going to weigh on people."

Despite his insider seat at the U.S. economy's decision-making table, the third-generation kid from Sacramento seems remarkably unaffected by his stature.

As his father notes: "You'd never know what he does for a living. When people ask, he just tells them: 'I'm an economist.' "

DENISE WOODBURY 80 OBITUARY

From the SUU Alumni Magazine, Fall 2010 (Cedar City,UT)

SUU is filled with stories of faculty who have forever impacted students, and Denise Woodbury was no exception. A brilliant scholar, dedicated teacher and engaged community member, Denise touched all who met her in her career spanning nearly a decade. She passed away May 2, 2010 and will be truly missed.

Born at Tachikawa Air Base in Tokyo, Denise was always a skilled academician. She graduated from high school at just 15 and from BYU at the age of 18. Denise went on to complete her Ph.D. from the University of Utah and later earned a master's degree in psychology and two other master's degrees in education fields.

In her tenure as an assistant professor of business administration and then associate professor of finance, Denise was a mentor to thousands of SUU business students. "She genuinely cared about students, both academically and personally," says R. Kim Craft, chair of the SUU Department of Economics and Finance.

To carry on her legacy, the Woodbury family has established the Dr. Denise Woodbury Endowment for Business Students Scholarship to help business students attend SUU. Donations can be made to the SUU Advancement Office, Attention: Lori Blackner, 351 West University Blvd., Cedar City, Utah 84720.

WOODBURY, Denise
Our beloved daughter, granddaughter, sister, aunt and friend, Dr. Denise Woodbury, died May 2, 2010 in Cedar City, Utah. Denise was born October 30, 1964 at Tachikawa Air Base in Tokyo, Japan to Captain John Bryce Woodbury of the United States Air Force and Ranae Raymond Strain Woodbury. She was the third child of four --the only girl--with two older brothers and one younger. The family returned to the United States when she was six months old and for the next several years was stationed at many locations and moved often. Denise often remarked that she never had a really close friend that she enjoyed for more than a year or so and then had to leave them. Denise attended a private school in Sacramento, California, going through an individualized program for 7th to 9th grades in just six months. She went directly to high school since she was too smart and the teachers couldn't teach her anything new. She graduated from high school at the age of 15 and entered college. She graduated from BYU at the age of 18 and was the youngest to do so up to that point, besting her brother John, who received his diploma from BYU at 19 and following in the footsteps of her father, John, also a BYU graduate. From that point on she couldn't stop learning and completed her PhD from the University of Utah. While teaching at Florida State University, she earned a Master's Degree in Psychology and also in subsequent years earned two Master's Degrees in various educational fields. She also taught at BYU-Hawaii, Weber State University, and twice at Southern Utah University in Cedar City. Denise was a dedicated educator and served as a professor of finance at SUU in addition to being an advisor to the SIFE club and former President of the Faculty Senate. She truly was a mentor to thousands of students. Her greatest achievement in working with many students was the SIFE program for Students in Free Enterprise--a service organization in the field of business. She received much recognition for her endeavors, including here being the recipient many times of the Sam M. Walton (Wal-Mart) fellowship award. Denise was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and held many callings including primary teacher, young women's and Temple worker. We are certain a joyous reunion is taking place on the other side as Denise is reunited and preceded in death by her mother Ranae, both her grandfathers, Everett Strain and William Evans Woodbury. Also her grandmother, Verda S. Woodbury. Denise is survived by her father, John Bryce (Joyce) Woodbury of Lawton, Oklahoma (Fomerly of Sacramento, California), grandmother Rowane Bowen of Sacramento, California and brothers John Bryce II (Sharon), Bevan J. (Tammy) and Michael Scott Woodbury, all of Sacramento, California. Funeral services will be held on Saturday, May 8, 2010 at 9:00 am at the Cedar Westview Ward Chapel, 1650 West Center Street, Cedar City. Viewings will be held Friday, May 7, 2010 from 7:00 - 9:00 pm at Southern Utah Mortuary, 190 North 300 West Cedar City, Utah and on Saturday from 7:30 am to 8:30 am at the chapel prior to funeral services, all under the direction of Southern Utah Mortuary. Online condolences can be sent to www.southernutahmortuary.com. The family requests donations be made in Denise's name to the "SUU Dr. Denise Woodbury Endowment for Business Students Scholarship" in care of the University's Advancement Office Attention: Lori Blackner, 351 West Center Street, Cedar City, Utah 84720.

Occupation: Retired Air Force. Freelance writer, artist; Executive Director of non profit ministry, also do occasional home remodeling repair work.
Bio: Right after graduation moved to Plant City, FL with family where I went to work at Kraft Foods Inc. on clean-up crew then the following summer I worked maintenance during the plant shut down. While there I received Christ into my life and was called into the ministry. I attended bible college for one year. When I got laid off from Kraft due to the near complete wipe out of the orange crop in 1982 I went to work as an industrial painter when I got laid off from that I went to work for a wholesale plant nursery. After getting tired of the unstable job market I joined the US Air Force in 1984. Became a medic and was assigned to Keesler AFB in Mississippi. Got married in 1985 to my first wife. Left the Air Force for a short time in 1988 to go into full time ministry in Newberry, Florida. Things didn't work out with that job, so I returned to the Air Force and moved to MacDill AFB in Tampa, Florida
while there I got a free trip to the Saudi desert for the Gulf war. Went to Germany in 1993 and my son was born that year. I spent 5 1/2 years in Frankfurt GE stationed at the now closed Rhein-Main AB. Continued college there and studied art and business concurrently at the University of Maryland. Left Germany in 1998 and was stationed it Holloman AFB in New Mexico. Became a recruiter in 2000 and moved to Dothan, Alabama. Left Alabama in 2004 and went to Charleston AFB in Charleston, South Carolina where I won another free trip to the desert this time to Kuwait in support of OIF/OEF. Divorced in 2005 after an extended separation (trying to keep it together)while wife and kids remained in Dothan, AL. Remarried in 2006 to my current wife Theresa. I retired from the Air Force in November of 2006 and started a remodeling business in Charleston. God called us to move to the mountains of North Carolina to open a Christian retreat center and move into full time ministry, so we up and quit everything and moved to Spruce Pine, NC in April, 2007.
Trivia: I'm writing a book, which is almost complete and hope to have it publisher ready by the end of this year ('07)
Friends: Robert Horner, Shawn Helton, Marcy Duke, Marc Usilton (Michelletti), Max Wise, David Goff and many others whose names escape me right now. I've lost contact with all of them. I was saddened to learn of David's and Marc's deaths. I had been trying to find Marc for several years, but never reconnected.
Hobbies: Writing, painting, photography, guitar, running, hiking, backpacking/camping and bicycling.

Memorable_teachers: Mr. Botello. He was like my best friend and he taught me more than just photography; he taught me about life. He introduced me to the work of Man Ray, which has shaped my art. Mrs McKenzie who loved my creative writing so much that she passed me in her Expository writing class even though I didn't do so well. Mr. Wilcox from metal shop, mostly for his wisdom.
Favorite_memory: Slap boxing on the quad and hanging out at the wall near the art classes watching girls and dreaming about what life will be like when we finally left Encina. 
Story: I spent a lot of time in the darkroom of B-4 and when I finally came out in my senior year I met a lot of people who didn't even know I went to the school. They did an article in the school paper about me being holed up in the darkroom and that was pretty cool at the time. My favorite story involves a substitute teacher in Mr. Rollins World History class. He had to go out for extended jury duty and we went through a number of substitutes. Our class was divided with the bad kids on the teachers left and the good kids on the teachers right. I was on the left (need I say more). We (the bad ones) would throw paperwads and shoot spit wads at the sub and the next day we would have a different one. Then "she" showed up, I don't remember her name, but she wouldn't back down no matter what we did she came back and she changed my life. She saw potential in me and encouraged me to live up to my potential. I switched sides and turned my grade from an "F" to a "C" and I think eventually a "B". I wouldn't have graduated without her help. That was also the catalyst to me meeting new people and being discovered by people who didn't even know I was there.

comments: After graduating Indian boarding school (a cross between prison and military) where I was on the football, boxing (all year), track, rodeo (bull riding), and track teams. I went the University of Utah, who's symbol (not mascot was the Ute). Ute is and Indian tribe native to Utah. As the Ute symbol a casting director spotted me and asked if I could ride a horse bare-back like that in front of a camera. After asking how much the pay was, I said "Hell yeah!" and ever since I've been acting and doing stunt work. Later married someone half my age, also in the industry. I also have done many commercials and print work (modeling), calendar shoots and Tech. advising on Native American subject matter (At the U of U I majored in cultural anthropology, and speak several Native American languages). I think many people at Encina didn't know I was multi-lingual, even close friends, because I only spoke Lakota to family members. Most recently I was in the Steven Spielberg mini-series "Into the West" as White Crow. Some of my other work can be found on imdb.com. Weird life huh?

State service, working in the acccounting and clerical fields.  August, 1996, my family moved to a turn of the 20th century, two story, farm house in the rural county of Colusa (50 miles north of Sacramento.)  My second husband (Forrest) singlehandedly renovated the home from the foundation up.  I was communting to Sacramento from College City to work and in 1997 I was fortunate to find a State job 15 minutes from my home in Williams.  I have worked in Williams for the past eight years with the exception of a 9 month temporary assignment in Yuba City.  In 2001, I divorced my second husband.  I am making plans to continue my education and to actively pursue those dreams I had in high school.

I am now at Harvard University, working as a network analyst.
Trivia: you could say I am restless, and that anything I have set my sights on, I have achieved... now I am considering my versatility and convincing demeanor as possibly the preparation for work as a high-level diplomat specializing in Russian and Chinese foreign relations, in my latter years as I age and grow in wisdom.

I am also a trained coluratura soprano and am actively involved with different sacred early (baroque and before)music groups in Maine and the Harvard University community...
Friends: Well, none of them mentioned me as a best friend... but, Sandy Conley, Dave Lester, Kelly O'Dell, Misty Tenney etc... yeah, I know I was a loner and restless on the face of the earth, but I had lost touch with everyone but Sandy - who I owe so much to, for saving me from a pretty unstable dysfunctional family life over the years...

Rusty Vardy and Bryce Cordes, for the Summer School Environmental Investigations course... they were cool. The course was outdoors, with backpacking and learning about edibles and natural history.
And Finally, my ALL TIME MEMORABLE AWARD goes to:
ERIC DAHLIN!!!!!!! God knows, how he put up with me cutting the rest of my classes and spending the days in his ceramic studio - doing what-not.

but mostly, I recall the total comfort and love from my friends there, as I had a terrible home-life and this was my island of stability for three years...
Story: umm... maybe not, I am not sure what the statute of limitations would be for some of the things my friends did...
BUT, I can share, that recently, Sandy had been thinking about me alot, as I had slipped off the radar, and I got in touch with her, and she had heard from Dave Lester, and put me in touch with him. Damn, it feels good to talk to my friends, we really have not changed...
And there is always that certain ESP, so that anyone close to me that wants to find me, can focus their thoughts and their radars and I will call them back asap!

EX-BOYFRIEND HELD IN WOMAN'S STABBING DEATH
  A 24-year-old woman was found stabbed to death in her downtown Sacramento apartment Sunday morning, and her ex-boyfriend was arrested Sunday afternoon in connection with the killing, police said. Tonia Seabron, 662 N St., died
Saturday night after being stabbed several times in the chest, according to Sacramento Police Sgt. Ronald Meadors and the county coroner's office.
  Arrested was Reavous Van Thomas, 32, of Sacramento, who had told the apartment manager Sunday morning that Seabron wasn't answering the door when he knocked. He accompanied the manager, Vern Gore, who opened the apartment, and they found the victim's body on the bedroom floor and notified police at 7:49 a.m. There were no signs of forced entry to the second-floor apartment, part of the Capitol Towers complex three blocks west of the state Capitol, Meadors said.
  Thomas, who had been with detectives throughout the day, was arrested at 4 p.m. Meadors said Thomas had been stabbed in his leg and was treated at University Medical Center. Meadors declined to say how Thomas had been injured. Meadors said Thomas would be held without bail at the Sacramento County Jail, and would be booked on unspecified murder charges later this week after the homicide detective confers with the district attorney's office.
  According to police, Seabron and Thomas moved into the N Street apartment about a year ago with her toddler son. Thomas lived there until a few months ago, when Seabron broke up with him, although the couple still socialized, Meadors said.
  After Seaborn's body was found, police placed the toddler in his grandmother's custody. She was visiting her daughter from Memphis this weekend, but was not at the apartment when the slaying occurred. She and other family members arrived Sunday morning while police were still inside, Meadors said.
  Gary Chartrand, a cartographer who lives in Sacramento and commutes to San Francisco to work, said he often heard the couple fighting in their apartment above his. Manager Gore described Seabron as a "really nice lady" and a good resident who always paid her rent. Several months ago, however, other residents had complained about loud noise from her apartment, he said.
  Gore saw Seabron Saturday and said that she joked with him about wearing green on St. Patrick's Day. "She was really happy the day before, with her mother here," Gore said. He said she recently got a new job.
  Chartrand said he had a group of friends over Saturday night and didn't hear anything in the apartment above him. The neighborhood had its share of domestic disputes and drunks, but "never anything like this," he said. "This complex has a pretty good reputation for security," Chartrand said. "I'm sure this will rock the whole community for awhile."

Bio: Let's see......I went to Sac State, on the 5 year plan, and graduated with a degree in Psychology in 1985; 2 months later I married my college sweetheart and we just celebrated 15 years of married bliss this past August! I have 2 wonderful children, T.J.(10) and Katie (7) and have been working fulltime also.

Kids: Thomas John (T.J.) turned 10 in September and he is our brainiac!! He has green eyes like his Dad and is tall (I know, obviously he got my hubands' genes)and handsome. T.J. plays Little League, as well as, he loves to play golf; he also loves his Game boy and riding his scooter. He is in Scouts and had his first campout last summer!  He is our actor and loves to tell jokes. Katie Marie is 7 and is our tomboy! She loves sports even more than her brother. She has been playing Little League since she was 4 and last Christmas, asked Santa to bring her catcher's gear for Christmas! She also loves playing with her Barbie dolls, especially in the tub,(where Ken always seems to be drowning and Barbie has to help him....). Her dream is to play basketball at Stanford (hey, her pediatrician said she would be 5'10"). The personalities are totally different, but they both seemed to inherit the sense of humor and making jokes gene (can't imagine where that came from......)and they are truly the joys of our lives!

Occupation: Employee Benefits Supervisor
Bio: Since graduation in 1980, I attended two years at American River College.  I 1984 I got married and moved to the Modesto area.  I have two children, Joey is now 14 and a Freshman in Clayton Valley High, and Emily is 12 and she's in 8th grade.  I went through a divorce in 1990 and soon after that met my soul mate, which I am happy to say I am now married to.  His name is Mike and he has three children (14,12,10) from a prior marriage.  We moved to the Walnut Creek area in 1998 and we love it here.   Mike and I both work for the same company, which makes life very interesting.
Friends: My best friend at Encina was Daphne Pechart.  I also hung out with Leane Trevelyan and Marcy Honeyman.  Unfortunately because of all of my relocations, I have lost touch with everyone at Encina. 
Hobbies: My all time favorite hobby would be SHOPPING.  I am a seasoned veteran at it.  I must admit that I am not very athletic, however I did play flag football in Encina.  Oh yeah, and my other favorite hobby STARBUCKS. Mike and I love to travel, but with five kids it's sometimes hard to get away.  He is an avid golfer, so we often will getaway LaQuinta in Palm Springs.
Kids: My kids are the most wonderful things in the world.  They are my life.  We have a lot of fun with them, as they each have their own personality.  Between the two of us we have five kids, between the ages of 10 and 14, so I will be working for a long time to get them all through college.
Grade_school: I went to school in Iran, came to Encina as a Sophomore in 1977.

Occupation: Office Technician
Bio: Hello Class of 1980!
I don't know if any of you remember me , I was the Football "trainer, taper" with Anika Swisher I can't remember if that was for the 1979 or 1980 year.  But you football players and Basketball players would remember. I was a displaced Freshman, I should have gone to Sacramento HS , but my parents moved to Campus Commons so I spent my 8th grade year at Jonas Salk and H.S. of course at Encina.  It was definitely tough since I didn't grow up with a lot of you who went to Encina.  I hung out with Marla and Anika and alone too.
Trivia: I have had a great life being able to travel several times to Europe and also living in the former Yugoslavia back in 1985-1986 and also working for a Tour Organization called "Yugo-Tours of London. I was a Hotel Representative on the Makarska Riviera on the Adriatic sea.  After my stent in Yugoslavia the next year 1987 I was in France and went to a private language school and also was an "Au Pair" taking care of a child for my room and board.  I am bilingual in French and Serbo-Croatian. I really feel blessed about all of the opportunities I have had, not to say that it was all that easy.  So while a lot of you were going to college and getting your degrees I was trapsing across Europe and learning a lot of hard lessons.  I wouldn't have done it any differently. In 1989 I married my husband he was French , but unfortunately the marriage didn't last.  He's back in France and I am here were I should be, I guess?   I have a lot of hobbies, travel, language, sports and Salsa dancing...Well it was nice to be able to add a little something to the Encina website...Presently I work for the State of California at the Trade & Commerce Agency as an Office Technician..One more thing Mr. Psiasas was my favorite teacher, he taught French and was a very inspiring teacher he loved France and loved his job.  Unfortunately he died from cancer..

I was married in 1990 and also, unfortunately, recently divorced.  I have two beautiful boys (Jack age 7 and Jeffrey age 5) that I devote most of my time playing sports, fishing, camping, skiing, and helping out with school work.
Friends: I still keep in contact with and have family get-togethers with the Scott Simon family, the Steve Perata family (1979 grad) and the Mike Skube family.  I recently caught up with my old buddy Paul Sheehan--Paul hasn't changed in 20 years--the years have only made him more sarcastic and quick witted!
Hobbies: As often as possible, I enjoy going snow skiing, water skiing, playing sports, and doing anything in the outdoors.  I also have a side business (H2JM Master Builders) that keeps me busy building custom casework (wall units, kitchen & bathroom cabinets, etc.)
Kids: My boys are very different and a lot fun.  Jack Andrew Meier (age 7) is very outgoing and theatrical whereas Jeffrey Adam Meier (age 5)is more shy and loves playing sports.  They both currenty attend Capital Christian School, however, we plan to enroll them in the Folsom Unified School Distric in 2001.  In case you didn't notice, both boy's initials are JAM--I could never slam dunk a basketball but now I have two JAM's!

Occupation: Director of Strategic Planning
Bio: I now live in Kansas City, thanks to Jennifer Smith-Tierney's wiley ways (when I came to visit her in 1992, she only drove me down the grandest boulevard in KC and introduced me to what-turned-out-to-be-the-only gorgeous single men in KC).
     Needless to say, I am still single, but happy with my 15 year-old cat Tasha and 8-year-old appaloosa gelding (nickname:Foster the Destroyer) that bucks me off with some regularity.
     I work for a global engineering-construction company, and was lucky enough to get some travel in to London and the Middle East some years back. Cairo made the largest impact - it was dirty, smelly, loud, crowded (18 million people in the city), and the food was terrible (and I like middle eastern food), but I loved every minute of it. To be seventies-ish, it was a trip.
Trivia: Lived in San Diego for 12 years, worked for Home Federal Savings & Loan of San Diego that went down the tubes with the rest of them. Moved to Kansas City to work for Black & Veatch in 1992.
Friends: Jennifer Smith (now Tierney), Kim Dimitras (still Morgan?), Sara Gannon (whatever happened to her?), Lori Burgess-Booth, Michelle LeMaire, Fran and Jill Sheetz, and oh how I hope I am not forgeting anyone. I never could find my niche in High School (sound familiar?) but I think we had a great class. Everyone was really nice and calm. I don't think I appreciated how lucky we were, but I do now. High school is tough for all women that I know. I was as insecure as the next person, but everyone seemed kind of supportive of each other, in a quiet way.
Hobbies: Horseback riding (hunter/jumper, trail, some dressage), snow skiing, reading about emerging diseases, and, lately, font design. My friends are disgusted and tell me I will never get married (but I nevertheless keep them up-to-date on emerging diseases - don't feed hot dogs to young children as there have been numerous listeriosis problems in the last few years, which is extremely hard on the very young and very old). And stay away from sprouts, Sacramento.
Kids: I have bored you enough already, and I am sure you don't want to hear about my horse.

Occupation: RN (neonatal intensive care)
Bio: I worked for the family business (wholesale tire distributor) until it dissolved in 1991.  I met my wife in 1986 and we married in 1991, she's an elementary school teacher (5th grade).  Tired of the tire business, I did some soul searching and decided to go back to college (late bloomer I guess) and become an RN.  I graduated from CSU Hayward in 1997 with my BSN degree.  I couldn't have done it without the patience, encouragement, and inspiration from my wife.  I'm now working in the neonatal intensive care unit at Alta Bates Medical Center in Berkeley CA.  After 5+ years of extraordinary medical measures my wife gave birth to our son Jacob August 12th 1998 (one day after my own birthday, quite the belated birthday gift).  I still stay in touch with Jim and Becky Granroth, lifelong friends.
Friends: I hung out with Jim Granroth, Greg Jordan, Marshall Bliss, Dusty Shaw, Ed Steffenhagen, Bill Knoble, Steve France (all class of 80'), Joe Blair, Dennis Heck, Lonnie West (all class of 81').  I've only stayed in touch with Jim Granroth and Greg Jordan over the years. And, just recently I got back in touch with Joe Blair via the internet (highschoolalumni.com).  I hope I didn't forget anyone, a lot of time has passed (unfortunately) since graduation.
Hobbies: When I have the time I like to golf, snow ski, and play tennis.  I played some softball up until recently (lower back injury).  Most of my rec time now is with my wife and son, which is just fine with me.
Kids: My son, Jacob Tanner, was born August 12th 1998.  Much to my wife's chagrin he was a 12 lb. baby at birth.  Needless to say he was delivered C-section.  I think he'll be a soccer player, he loves to kick the ball around the house.  He loves to watch Barney and Blues Clues.  The funniest thing, when he's excited about something he opens his mouth, raises his arms, and literally trembles, it's a kick to watch him.  Oh yeh, he's now into running and jumping (advancing those motor skills).   He also likes Daddy to throw him up into the air and catch him when he comes down, he's fearless.  He also likes Mommy to read books to him and play games with him.

Heard_about_website_from: I searched for Encina High School reunions on the AOL Find service (it uses Excite!).
Comments: I am looking forward to our 20 year reunion in the year 2000 and I hope someone's planning one! If so, feel free to contact me. I'd
love to help!

Bio: Gee, that covers nearly 20 years and I am given a paragraph? I have been living, mostly. Working at the same job for, ugh, 13 years now, which could be worse if I did not own the company. I have somehow managed to remain in Sacramento, despite every desire not to do so in my earlier years. Today I mainly manage to find time between work, activities and family to try to keep that oh so delicate balance that I have always been so good at fumbling.
Hobbies: I am very active in many sports, operating a sideline business called EcoTours, taking many "ecotourism" type tours all over the world. This year (1998) I have been whitewater rafting in Mexico, kayaking in the Galapagos Islands, hiking in Hawaii and many local California spots, hang gliding in British Columbia and exploring in New Mexico. I spend every other weekend on a tour and it keeps me active and sane. Beyond that, I am an active tennis player and sail at Folsom Lake whenever the wind plays right, which means that I clean my boat a lot while waiting for the six good sail days at Folsom. The remainder of the time, I spend at our home on the coast, relaxing.
Kids: My kids...well, I raised three foster children for 13 years, now each of them in college and me amazed that I survived the teenage years. Even more so that, during this time, I married and, somehow, was talked into my own child, now five years of age and a Kindergarten student at Holy Spirit School. She is quick, sly and smart, getting into all types of trouble and, I am sure, my revenge from heaven for my early days.
