Today's Featured Biography

 

 
Jerome Wilhelm


When I left O'Connell, I headed north to Villanova University, in accordance with the requirements of my father, who refused to pay for me to attend Virginia Tech. He thought I would be around too many friends and neglect the studies. So instead, I headed off to Philadelphia, which turned out to be a mecca of girls colleges. And those Jersey girls introduced me to a new world. After graduation I returned to DC and an amazing multitude of new experiences.
After college, Uncle Sam pointed his finger at me and I enlisted in the army instead of being drafted. White House Communications Agency (the military group recently in the news for their connection with the Secret Service - Colombia scandal) was looking for someone in the army with a college degree in accounting. As a lucky result, I was sent to DC to their facility in Georgetown, believe it or not. While there, i was picked to acquire 2 kegs of beer every Friday, with funds collected the week before, for a get together after duty hours at the facility. Four and a half days a week, I was a Budget and Fiscal specialist, and the other 1/2 day I was the "Keg Man". The XO and I would tap the first keg and test it for human consumption, which always took more than one glass each to be sure. After the service, I became a CPA.
During the time I was roaming around the DC area, I met my wife, Rosemary Romeo, through an introduction by her roommate, Kathy Becker (nee Murphy), both of them from the class of '65. Rosemary has been a Fairfax County school teacher for many years. We had 5 children, and 4 of them have grown to be very successful in their careers and at parenting. We have 8 grandchildren with the oldest not yet 5. By the end of the summer, we will have 9. I am known as "Silly Pop-Pop" to my grandchildren because of the way I clown around with them.

"I have to tell you that I LOVE your site! I have used it to plan several reunions now and I so appreciate your efforts and support. Thanks so much!" 7/9/2014

"This is the supreme class reunion program out there. Those other sites charge you for almost everything you use or research. My advice to all the classes out there - give yourself a break including your wallet, and do the organization yourself with the fine help of this awesome program. Classreport is the Epic Smart way to manage your class activities and reunions. We consider this program as a legacy to our classes." 5/22/2014
