She later ran the Hollandale Cafe with first husband Rod VanWyngeeren. The two were later divorced. Jeanne then started her dream job with the Freeborn County Sheriffs Department as a jailer.  For many of those years she worked to develop and implement several programs to help inmates when released.

Jeanne married Dennis Jaspersen on July 20, 2002.  Together they spent many wonderful years with remodeling and landscaping projects at their home, many fishing get aways and other travels.
