#2 Alum Update: Jamie Call-Schipaanboord

I figure since I've been asking for updates, I better post one of my own. I went to Montana State my freshman year, transferred to Ricks College in Idaho my sophomore year, and met Jake Schipaanboord on the first day of school. We started dating in the fall of '00 and got married June of '01. We've been married 7 years now and are still going strong. Jake and I finished our undergrad degrees at the University of Utah in '03 (me- BS in psychology, Jake- BA in English.) Jake graduated from the U. of Utah's law school in '06 and we moved to Oregon to look for a job. He accepted an offer in Klamath Falls (4 1/2 hours south of Portland) and we were there for 7 months. Then he was offered his dream job, practicing environmental law at a great firm in Salt Lake. We couldn't pass it up. We moved back to Utah in May '07, bought a house in Nov. '07, and that basically brings us to the present. We have three beautiful kids: Ben (5 1/2), Emma (3), and Josh (1). I'm a stay-at-home mom and love every wonderful (and challenging) minute of it. I'm planning on getting my masters in social work once my youngest is in school, but for now, I'm home with the kiddos.

As for the pictures, the first is a family picture we had taken on Labor Day. The second was taken in June when my son, Ben, broke his arm. The last picture is of me and my youngest, Josh, visiting a Buddhist temple in Malaysia in April.

So, I've received a lot of positive feedback about the reunion and I think we will have a great turnout. The reunion committee is currently in the process of tracking people down. We hope to get e-mail addresses from everyone so please shoot us an e-mail so we can get your contact info recorded:
