She and her twin sister were the first and second of four children. They were raised on the Oak Hill Ranch off of Old Airline Road. Jean was a descendant of proud California pioneers. Traveling overland in an early wagon train, the first members of the family arrived in the Mountain View area in 1851. The family has been in the Hollister area since 1870.Jean graduated San Benito County High School in Hollister with her twin Elizabeth A. Betty Hill on June 13, 1941.

They were married Dec. 21, 1943 in the St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Paicines, CA. Betty served as her maid of honor. When Don shipped off to Europe during WWII, Jean stayed busy raising her first child and was an active member of the Aircraft Warning Service (AWS), the civilian arm of the Army's Ground Observer Corps.
