Jean is a native of Troy, Pennsylvania where she learned to sew at a young age. Jean has mastered many crafts, including quilting, knitting, crochet, counted cross stitch, and is a master seamstress. Her interests in developing and sewing sunshades for T@b trailers developed when her daughter, Jenn Grover, charged her with making a custom sunshade out of a designer tarp. Jean worked to refine and improve her original design and opened her shop to the T@b community in 2018.

In her first year, Jean enjoyed interacting with her customers over the Internet and the opportunity to meet them in person at the 2018
üCAMP rally in Sugarcreek, Ohio.
