Life of Jake

by jake cosmos aller

the LIfe of Jake

I was born in Oakland, CA on October 29. 1955. I had all of the childhood diseases at once. Nonetheless, I was a genius as a child, reading at the 16th grade level in the third grade. I grew up in Berkeley, CA, and in. Washington, DC, where my father was Under Secretary of Labor for Johnson and Kennedy. Returning to Berkeley, I graduated from Berkeley High School as the student body president.  I bounced around a bit, including hitchhiking across the country, then graduated from UOP in 1979, joined the Peace Corps served in Korea. Taught ESL and college overseas for several years, went to graduate school at the University of Washington, and then I joined the Foreign Service, serving in ten countries over 27 years. I retired in 2016 to Korea and became a blogger. Most importantly, I met and married the Lady of my dreams in 1982.
