About Aging But Dangerous

Jean Ketcham, Co-founder/CEO

Jean Ketcham is Aging but Dangerous. Years ago, she made the conscious decision to live a life of fun, spirit and style, and she’s never looked back.

Jean is a former small business owner, top performing regional sales rep, and talk show host. She’s also a proud parent, an avid skydiver, and a cancer survivor. To put it mildly, Jean is up to any challenge.

After retiring, Jean discovered that 55+ women were not living up to their true potential. Their social circles were shrinking and their lifestyles were becoming less stimulating, less adventurous. That’s when Jean, along with Aging but Dangerous co-founder Suzanne Bates, became committed to making a difference.

Jean began organizing meetings where women could connect and share experiences, insights and strategies to help them enrich their lives. She brought in speakers on a wide variety of subjects to empower women to take control of the aging process; she also produced special events like 55+ fashion shows, skydiving outings, and an infamous “colonoscopy party.”

Before long, Aging but Dangerous was attracting National attention. Jean was asked to appear on talk shows and in major publications like Time Magazine. And now, Aging but Dangerous is entering a new phase. Jean has recently begun establishing local chapters where women can discover what it means to become Aging but Dangerous in lively, fun-filled monthly meetings.
