Jeannie Cook Class of  1967


Jeannie Cook  Portrait by Jeff Fain

  After graduation I attended Miami Dade Junior College for a couple of years and in 1969 I married Dean Duncan from the Southwest class of 1966.  At the time we married he was in the Air Force stationed in San Antonio, Texas.  We live there for about a year, then he completed his four-year stint and decided military life was not for him.  We moved back to Miami.  Our daughter Jessica Margaret was born in September of 1970.  I worked for First Federal Savings & Loan in Miami for 7 years, then an insurance company for about 8 months and then for Burger King Corporation on Kendall Drive for a year and a half.  We then moved to St. Petersburg where we lived for a year and a half then moved to Houston and lived there for 3 1/2 years.  We then moved to Atlanta, Georgia where we've lived for about fourteen years.  I have been working for the American Express Company for the last 17 years.  I work on the team that handles Delta Air Lines, Holiday Hospitality Corporation, National Car Rental, Omni Hotels, Promus Hotels and Harrah's Hotel and Casino's.  We handle them from the merchant side of American Express business working with them on marketing programs and overall strategic relationship.  Dean works for Blockbuster Entertainment, Inc. supervising the construction of their video stores and all their remodeling projects.  We have two beautiful grandchildren, Shelby Katherine who is 6 and Kyle Austin who is 5.  They are the joy of our lives.  Dean travels quite a bit since his territory is from Atlanta south in Georgia and all of the state of Florida.

  My hobbies are reading and music.  I sing in a women's gospel ensemble called "Sweet Spirit" and enjoy the times we sing each month.
