Jean Pond

November 2008

Jean Pond retired from Adult Careers, a nonprofit company she founded in 1983 which, over its 10 year history, found 6,000 jobs for displaced older workers.  She applied the skills she gained since her 80th birthday when she acquired her first computer to mentor and inspire others at the Lakeview Senior Center's computer lab in Orange County, California.

She had been a Citizen Ambassador for People to People's International conferences in Russia, Ukraine, Lithuania and the People's Republic of China as part of a professional delegation exploring aging issues as well as representing US seniors. Jean's trip to South Africa in the same capacity was for the Initiative for Education, Science and Technology. In 1996, she was a US delegate to International Geriatric Congress in Cuba. Jean's posts, chairmanships and awards were simply too numerous to list.

We will miss her as as SeniorWomenWeb's Ambassador-At-Large. Her active support of the website was a treasured gift.
