"He was a very clean-cut fellow
until he moved to Texas."


Jack B. Keller, Jr.


Jack Keller was born in Louisiana, raised in Southern California, matured in the central highlands of Vietnam while in the U.S. Army, lived in Colorado Springs and San Francisco, and moved to San Antonio, Texas in 1992. He married his high school sweetheart, Donna Bennett, in December 1994. They subsequently bought and moved to a small spread in Pleasanton, Texas, 30 miles south of San Antonio.

Jack attended El Paso Community College (since renamed Rocky Mountain Community College) in Colorado Springs in the mid-1970ís, where he was student body president and wrote his first computer program (in COBOL). He graduated magna cum laude in history from The Colorado College (Colorado Springs) and studied Russian history and historiography at the University of Colorado (Boulder). He retired from the U.S. Army Reserves in 1994 with the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. He currently holds a civil service position with the United States Army.

Jack is still a history buff and currently studies Texas history. His interests are flyfishing, landscape gardening, writing poetry and prose, oil painting, computer graphics, and winemaking. He collects stamps of the United States and Sweden, M.I. Hummel figurines and Christine Rosamond artist proofs. He and Donna recently buried an English Springer Spaniel named Colita. Jack is currently President of the San Antonio Regional Wine Guild. He drives a Dodge pickup (Donna drives a Cadillac!), listens to early rock 'n roll and modern country and western, and is a member of The Pierce-Arrow Society.

Jack can usually be reached by email, but is on vacation and has turned off his address.
