As Jane Knapp, I played in Memphis, TN, Nashville, TN, and Summit, NJ and began playing tourneys around 1970.

After marrying Bill Eason in 1974. I began playing as Jane Eason. Bill and I played tourneys in the New York and the north Jersey area, and lots of home Dupe and strong home team games with our best friends, Bob and Linda Sartorious and many other wonderful bridge-playing friends from NY and NJ. In a given night, our 2-table home team games included several national champions.

My favorite games in the north east were the New Jersey Double K. O.'s at Essex Bridge Center, where, with the Sartorii, we had the pleasure of playing long matches against some of the strongest players in the area.

Most frequent tourney team mates, besides Bob and Linda, were John Rengstorff and Billy Erickson. 

I'm still trying to figure how I managed to stay away from the bridge table for 20 years before returning about three years ago, but I think it was the call of the great outdoors.

During my absence from F2F duplicate, I played on the microsoft zone as jobanjo. And I currently play with bots on BBO as MawJ. (I love the bots!)

My bridge jobs include directing club games at the King of Clubs in Summit, NJ, and at MA Lightman Bridge Club, Inc., in Memphis, TN. I've taught off and on for 50 years. And I proof-read a couple of World Champion Books and one edition of the Bridge Encyclopedia, under the direction of editor Henry Francis. 

Bill and I currently live on a farm in north MS, near Memphis and the ACBL. Our house mates are two wonderful dogs and a cat. And we have recently thinned a herd of seven horses, three ponies, a mule.

Other hobbies include genealogy, online word games, driving my mule, horseback riding, and dining out with the our long-time friends, the Oshlags.
