                  Jennifer (Aviles) King  Port Angeles, WA      
     Real Estate Investor/Dance Coach
    I attended Walla Walla College where I met my husband, Lance, that November. He is my soul mate and best friend. We were married in May 1994 and now have 3 children, Alexandra (10), Dylan (8), and Ashley(5). Since Lance and I are self employed, we work side-by-side 24-7. I home school our children which to me is a great joy and opportunity. I also started a new dance program at Peninsula College and am having a blast watching the program grow and working with the students. My life is busy but happy and full!

    I moved to North Carolina just after high school.  After 5 years of playing it was time to come home, finish my college degree, meet my wife and start a family.  Lora and I met in 1998, had our first child in 2002, graduated from PSU (business school) in 2003, our second child in 2004, moved to Bend in 2004, our third child in 2005 and now it's 2010.  Where has the time gone?
    Favorite memory:  Having a full head of hair!  It was spiked with gel and I was so picky about how it laid on my head.  Those days are long gone!
    The memories are faint!  I'm sure I wouldn't recognize many of you today.  I would sure be tough for you to recall, betcha!

     U.S. Navy Submarine Officer
    After leaving West Linn, I went to University of San Diego on a Navy scholarship.  I've been a submarine officer in the Navy for 13 years now.  I was on a submarine out of Groton, Connecticut for 3 1/2 years.  Then went and spent 2 years getting a masters degree.  Spent 3 years as Navigator and Operations Officer on a submarine out of San Diego.  Went to shore duty in Washington, D.C. for two years.  Now, my wife, Amy, and our two sons, Brian (6) and Greg (3) live in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii where I'm the Executive Officer ("XO") of a submarine.
    Favorite memory:  In school, my favorite memories are of photography class and developing film in the dark room.  It seems like nobody uses film anymore - it's all digital (don't I sound like an old fogey).  Outside of school, my favorite memories are getting away from West Linn to the Oregon Coast to go scuba diving in Tillamook and Newport.  I make it back to West Linn once every few years to visit my parents, and it's amazing to see how much changes each time I go back.

    Well, just looking up old friends, I attended WLHS until my Sophomore year and transferred to Harbor High in Santa Cruz, CA.  I am married and have two wonderful children.  I have been in the USCG for almost 11 years and have enjoyed every minute of it.
    Favorite memories, hmmm... The TP trips, Keith I still owe you!  Oh, and that great party I decided to have... Think every cop in West Linn showed up for that one, funny my parents still remind me of that after 13 years...
