Jean Ketcham

Jean Ketcham is the epitome of living dangerously with fun, spirit and style!  Her roles as homecoming queen, tennis competitor, business owner, parent, sales executive, entrepreneur and cancer survivor converge to give her the credentials for her sage leadership of this organization.
Known for her “2 Cents Worth” editorials where she shares her opinions whether you want to know them or not, she demonstrates courage in bringing forth subjects we often hesitate to talk about such a “chin hairs”, sex and incontinence!  An avid reader & researcher Jean is always aware of the latest trends in healthy living, fashion trends, skin care and adventures, especially if they include wine!  She annually leads the charge on skydiving and is already planning this year’s Martini Jump Skydive event – check the Events Calendar for the date.

Her most recent “dangerous activity” is convincing her husband of the need for Micha – a delightfully cute puppie – who has introduced them to all sorts of fun learnings including a squeaky toy!

As the CEO of Aging But DANGEROUS, Jean is excited to create events and services that support each of us in the aging adventure while retaining great style, strong spirit and significant fun!

C. Suzanne Bates

Suzanne co-founded Aging But DANGEROUS with Jean Ketcham in 2009.  Prior to forming the company, Suzanne was deeply immersed in the design community both within the greater Twin Cities area as well as nationally.  Her life has been richly blessed with many unique and interesting experiences from studying in Europe to completing Harvard’s Graduate School of Design Program to owning her own design studio in the Twin Cities market to showing horses nationally to authoring a book and being a magazine contributor.

Aging But DANGEROUS will forever be grateful for the leadership, creativity and energy Suzanne has provided.  We are excited to follow her new adventures with the same enthusiasm, humor and spirit she brought to us!
