Speaker Bio
A profile in our local newspaper;
“Jean Yeager is a deep thinking, dry humored, spiritually-minded, and fabulously unique
writer. His subject choices are often unusual and his metaphors always creative. He makes connections between things many would never think of (for example, I recall in one writing session he wrote about a ‘gravel pit wound”’.”
“But best of all, he’s an incredibly likeable man….”
“Yeager, born and raised in Texas, began writing as a teenager. He eventually got into advertising for major corporations, including McDonalds, 7-Eleven, and Coca-Cola, for which he won awards. He even wrote a film for then President Ronald Reagan.”
“In his mid-forties, he left the advertising business and became a consultant of socially- progressive nonprofits. He and his wife moved to Rutland in 2008 after retiring from his job as Executive Director of a nonprofit in Ann Arbor, Michigan.”
