ARCO Alumnus Jeanette Crumpler was an ARCO employee on the 41st floor of the ARCO Tower from 1984 through 1992. An Executive Receptionist, she tells us it was a wonderful job.

We often hear about the wonderful ARCO staff that contributed so much to the company, and Jeanette’s recollection is no different, she tells us “The people were so nice to me and made me feel a part of the ARCO "family" each day. I enjoyed talking to and seeing people not only from the ARCO Tower but from all of the many other ARCO locations. The diversity of people from everywhere and their experiences were so interesting to me. My fondest memories of working at ARCO were the people, their professional attitudes and the many kindnesses they extended.”

Jeanette took early retirement to care for her terminally ill son; after he tragically passed away she began her writing career. Having majored in Journalism while attending college she became the first female sports writer at SMU. With reference to writing Jeanette’s impressive credentials include a column in “Gals in Sports”, covering numerous events, completing eight books, over 150 articles, 650 interviews and many features and articles for various publications.

In addition to her writing career Jeanette has been an interpreter for the deaf for forty years. She presently serves on the Board of Disciples for Trinity (DOT) a non-church related 501c3 charity that completes invaluable work serving more than 2600 terminally ill children, women and men annually. Having served on this board for 15 years she has written two books for them and is a passionate ambassador for the organization. Jeanette is active in other organizations too and even served on the Cultural Affairs Commission of the City of Dallas.

Jeanette remains an avid gardener and took part in tomato seed trials for the National Gardening Association for over 35 years as a member of their test panel, completing this role for several other seed companies too.
