After being a homemaker for many years, in 1973 she and Don started and built Sperry and Associates, Inc.

With tremendous passion and an incredible sense of humor, Jane lived life to the fullest. Family, friends, travel, golf and tennis were among her many joys. She was a proud member of Kappa Delta Sorority, Spanish Krewe of Springtime Tallahassee and Town Club. Jane also gave generously of her time to many local events and organizations.
