An avid learner, Jean also achieved a Masters Degree in Educational Administration/Supervision and served as a school principal in New Jersey.
As her passion for learning transferred to a hunger and thirst for learning about the source of the living waters, Jean made two trips to Eretz Yisrael in the 80's seeking "to know" (Yadah) her Creator in a deeper way. She then joined Ron composing, recording and performing their Messianic music throughout New Jersey and New York.
Jean has co-produced and recorded five CD's to date in a wide variety of musical styles from jazz, pop, standards, international favorites in several languages to Messianic Israelite music.
The duo now make their home in Naples, Florida where they have recently completed a highly successful three year run as The Peter Duchin Duo at the Ritz-Carlton, Naples. They perform in a resort hotel as a duo and with their bands and orchestra for area private social and corporate functions.
Ron and Jean continue to share a passion for learning about their Israelite heritage and for writing and recording Messianic Israelite music for the edification of the body of true believers in Messiah Yahushua.
