Jean

Jean is a compulsive gambler. She has lost her self-respect, the trust of her loved ones, and lots of money. Now comes the biggest ante of her life.

Listen to Jean’s story on SoundCloud:

Jean’s husband Ray lost property and all savings because of Jean’s addiction. Tired of years of lies and losses, he was going to leave Jean, but he gave her a last chance.

Jean is in a recovery program to overcome the devastating disease. She hopes to return to a normal life after 19 years of ruining it.

Special thanks to Director of the Reno Problem Gambling Center Denise Quirk for assistance with the story.
