They currently live in Princeton where Jackie owns her own coaching and consulting business, Key Solutions, where she helps people discover solutions from within. Maddi loves to dance and Wes is a wiz with the soccer ball. The building gene runs strong, as this little man is a natural with the tools. As a family, they enjoy downhill skiing, camping, and gardening. They sponsor local sports teams and enjoy sharing random acts of kindness.
Ted’s younger daughter Laura, is an elementary school teacher who is active in road biking, coaching rep basketball and running local fundraisers. Together her and Jeff Yomans live in Plattsville. Jeff has two children, Ashton and Eden. As a family they love going to the cottage, boating, and fishing.
Jackie and Laura’s favourite childhood memories are of the weekends they spent boating at Turkey Point. They would be required to be “up and at em” by 6am to go fishing, because the “Early Bird Gets The Worm.” As young kids and teenagers the best way to ensure the girls were up is to promise them a stop at the swimming sandbar and a foot long hot dog at Dover on the way back to the Marina.
Both girls were amazed the day they saw their dad show off his skills as a solemn water skier.
Ted has a passion for old Corvettes. When the girls were young Ted would take them to the car shows and register the cars in their names.
