Jean worked shoulder to shoulder with Paul as they established Mishler Realty and Mishler Enterprises; all while raising their two sons, Kim and Kris, whom made her very proud.

Their travels also included many cruises visiting many foreign island ports, a trip to the Holy Land, and several European Countries, as well as numerous trips to Las Vegas and Atlantic City.
