Former Town Crier Interns Send Greetings from Washington, D.C.
Crystal Zeh and Jeff Kosseff, Town Crier interns in 1998, welcomed their first child, Julia Madeleine Kosseff, in February, and sent the above photograph of mother and daughter. They are posed in front of a framed edition of the Town Crier from July 27, 1998, which features Crystal’s lead story on excavation at Fort Michilimackinac.
Mr. Kosseff worked at the Town Crier for two summers, 1997 and 1998, and following graduation from the University of Michigan, he and Ms. Zeh were married and went to Portland, Oregon, where he wrote for the business page on the Oregonian. He was transferred to the newspaper’s Washington, D.C. bureau to cover Congress and studied law at Georgetown University at night, earning a law degree in 2010.
He reports that he is now practicing media and technology law at a Washington, D.C. firm which includes pre-publication review of broadcast and print stories for media clients. Meanwhile, Ms. Zeh, who was graduated from the University of Michigan with a degree in English literature, runs the records management program at the Commodity Futures Trading Commission.
Writes Mr. Kosseff: “We eagerly read the Town Crier and love to keep up with Island news.”
