About Me

Jim Tennermann

I was born into a middle-class family in New Jersey in 1959. I went to public school and later to Syracuse University, where I received a BA in liberal arts. I’ve always worked in technical fields, and I’ve taken time out in my career to travel and explore other interests. I have lived in the greater Boston area since 1983. I have been very lucky to meet and marry a lovely woman and to ultimately buy a small house and live modestly outside of the city. In many ways I’m just an average person.

I am extremely grateful for all the medical professionals who treated me and kept me up and running and just as grateful for friends and family who have supported me again and again.
