Hi, Jim Vossen here. For a long time I have been putting off writing about my life. Oh, I've started here and there trying to write my life's story and for some reason or another I've gotten interrupted, but, I'm hoping that this is the beginning of "The Story of Jim Vossen".

I have decided to write my story in different chapters. I will probably write and complete most chapters not-in-order of my life's story. I will try to be as accurate as I possibly can. In most cases I will use real names.

I will be writing about where I was born and raised, my parents and my sister, the schools I went to, my grammar school days, my junior high school days, my high school days, my businesses, my jobs, my first marriage, my children, my fights with the law, my fights with government agencies, my early days of radio and television, my present days of radio and television and of course my current life with my wife Mary Lou Tedder Vossen.

"The Story of Jim Vossen"


I was born on December 30th, 1949 at Children's Hospital in San Francisco. My Parents were Arthur and Virginia Vossen. I lived at 2307 29th Avenue in San Francisco until July 1970 when I married Carol Lee Stahl of 44th Avenue. I was 20 and she was 17. I have a sister about 8 years older than me, named Carole. Though I never considered Carole as my half-sister, she did have a different father and her maiden name is Carole Popoff.
