She graduated valedictorian from Aransas Pass High School in 1945. After high school she attended college at Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas, where she received a degree of Bachelor of Science in 1949. She began her career at Burbank Vocational High School that same year as a physical education teacher.

Upon the birth of their first child, Jane became an elementary school teacher in Ozona where she taught for 30 years.

In Ozona, Jane was a member of the Wesleyan Service Guild of the Board of Missions of the Methodist Church, a Girl Scout leader of the El Camino Girl Scout Council, member of the Order of the Eastern Star and was a lifetime member of the Texas State Teachers Association. After moving to Fort Stockton, Jane became a member/officer of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution. She served on the Chamber of Commerce, the altar guild of First United Methodist Church of Fort Stockton and was an active member of the Norman Read Chapter of the Order of the Eastern Star.
