She was born on July 10 in Worcester Massachusetts to the late Edward J. Tucker and Agnes Mara Tucker; Jean was a graduate of Classical High School and Clark University. Jean's life was filled with adventure and her career took her to many places, doing things that most women of her era never had the opportunity to do. While attending a dance with her sister at the Statler Hotel, in Boston, across the street from the Coconut Grove Nightclub fire on November 28, 1942 Jean was one of many individuals pressed into service that long and cold night by Boston Fire and Police personnel to help comfort and transport scores of victims of the inferno. She spent a winter skiing in Aspen and sailed on the Andrea Doria. Jean worked for several years as a journalist at the Worcester Telegram, the Manchester (NH) Union Leader, the Catholic Free Press, and the Springfield Republican before coming to Hartford in the early 1960's to join the Hartford Courant. During her years at the Courant, she covered stories in locations from Hartford to halfway around the world. She traveled to Pakistan in 1963 to report on First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy's visit to that nation. Jean was the Courant's civil rights reporter throughout the 1960's, detailing those issues for her readers wherever the story took her. She reported from the March on Washington and in Selma, and the funeral of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and highlighted discrimination in housing and employment in Greater Hartford during those tumultuous years. In the early 1970's she joined Hartford's CBS affiliate, now known as WFSB, as a television news reporter. During her time there, she also worked as an anchor and as Editorial Director. Not content to sit around after she retired, Jean became a volunteer at the American School for the Deaf and a docent at the Wadsworth Athenaeum. In Naples, she volunteered by teaching English. Jean is survived by her brothers Donald S. Tucker and his wife Marguerite of Wilmington Ma, Edward J. Tucker, Jr of Naples FL and Robert N. Tucker of Vernon, CT and her brother in law Philip Kravsow and his wife Midge and her sisters in law, Elaine Schultz and Frances Greenblatt. In addition, she is survived by many cousins, nieces and nephews and grand nieces and nephews.
