In 1960, Jayne’s life took a beautiful turn as she met and married Jack. They raised their family of five children in Norwood, NJ.  They were longtime members of Immaculate Conception Church and St. Anthony’s Church in Northvale and served as co-directors of the adult and youth choirs, sharing their love for music and faith with the community.  When her husband wanted to start a musical trio, Jayne learned to play the bass and joined the group, entertaining for years at weddings and other events. 

After raising her family, Jayne pursued her love of art, studying oil painting at the NY Academy of Art and the Art Students League in NYC.  She also studied at the Ridgewood Art Institute in Bergen County, where she later taught art classes and served on the Board of Trustees. Jayne’s talent as a painter was recognized and celebrated, as her works were exhibited in numerous national, museum, corporate, and one-woman shows. She continued her artistic journey into her retirement years in Cape May, NJ, teaching art classes at the Ocean City Arts Center in Ocean City, NJ.  Her paintings are displayed in private collections throughout the US, and she was also represented in several galleries in NJ and Delaware.
