We all need to feel like we matter, no matter what age, no matter who we are.

Legally Separated and Unemployed with a Year to Kill – What Will Jeanne Do?
A unique and timely set of circumstances create the perfect storm for a woman on the cusp of multiple changes. Her somewhat flippant decision to volunteer sets the stage for profound relationships you won’t soon forget.
When the housing bubble burst in 2008, Jeanne Corvese Hussin found herself at a fork in the road. She could either continue her job as a senior vice president for a mortgage banker at a significant pay cut or take the year-long severance and travel with her son, Jason. She chose the latter.
With the help of divine inspiration, Jeanne Corvese Hussin decided to volunteer. It was the only logical choice given the extra time she found herself with when her conversations with men online proved fruitless. Unfulfilling was an understatement. Jeanne knew there was more to life, and she was about to find it.
She found her unlikely solution at a local assisted living facility volunteering her time to memory care residents in a ward ironically named Recollections. The characters she meets will color her world and yours in her new book, I See Old People©, a true story about how small acts of kindness lead us to extraordinary love and connections that defy our wildest dreams.
Equipped with her new lease on life, Jeanne finds love again in an unexpected twist. I See Old People© confirms that it’s never too late. It’s not just a book, it’s an experience that will leave you forever changed. Pick up this remarkable memoir and step out of the ordinary.
I See Old People is much more than a book; it’s an experience.
