Jean was a "Miss Westchester Appliance" winner in 1946 which led to a brief career as a suit and dress model in New York. She also worked as a legal secretary and for Lincoln Center as a "Ticketron" lady. Marriage in 1949 brought Jean and Larry to Metuchen, NJ where they raised Larry and Pam. Her love of art brought her to study at the National Academy School of Fine Arts. She studied art history and even dabbled in stain glass. Her art paintings are proudly displayed in Palm Beach and Ann's Choice as well as the homes of her children. Jean was an amazing self taught seamstress and could make anything finely tailored. She had an eye for fashion and beautiful fabrics. The Salernos enjoyed the winters in Palm Beach for over 30 years. European travel was a passion as well. Being a part of IL Circolo, the Italian Cultural Society, the St. Edwards Church Guild and the Palm Beach symphony kept for busy going to galas.
