Jim and Jean Wells then ...


... and Jim and Jean Wells now.

Jim and Jean Wells were married at the Odell Baptist Church on June 18, 1966. They will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary in grand style, aboard a two-week European river cruise. Jim and Jean both grew up in Hood River and were high school sweethearts.

With Jim in the Air Force, they lived in Texas and Germany for four years before returning to the valley and the family orchard business and to raise their family. They have two children, Cindy and Devon (and Tia), and seven grandchildren, Acacia, Kelsey, Tanner, Myla, Zac, Cooper, and Ian, and they feel fortunate to have them all close by in Hood River.

They keep busy with all of the grandkids’ sports and activities, as well as volunteering in the community and traveling whenever possible.
