I have know George and Jean Schardt since 1989 when I moved to South Florida to work at Everglades National Park. George was my work colleague and Jean was my son's 5th grade teacher at RR Moton (Miami). During George's last years of work, Jean would come to the Daniel Beard Center (field station) and volunteer. George, being a German from Pennsylvania was a bit work focused; whereas, Jean was a genuine "People Person". Jean quickly became our "house/work mom" and was greatly beloved by all the staff. She was a wonderful person, a great friend and "mom" to all..

I met Jean at Everglades National Park where her husband George worked. She had been driving him into work and wandered down the hall one day looking to help out anyone who needed it. I put her to work and she became my volunteer and friend from that point on. She was a lifelong learner and enjoyed being at the park. She was willing to try her had at anything with the collections and I always knew a Jean project because of the hundreds of post-it notes she used! There was a period where she got ill and couldn't volunteer but I would go visit her at the hospital and at home. I loved taking my daughter to see her and George before we left Florida. She was always so wonderful with her, happy to see her and you could see the teacher in her come out in an instant. I'll miss you my friend.
