Chief of Staff|President George H. W. Bush
One year ago today, Barbara Bush passed away. In honor and memory of the former First Lady who was loved and admired by so many, a very special episode with a woman who had a front row seat to the remarkable lives of both Barbara and her beloved George, the 41st President of the United States. Jean Becker worked along side the Bushes for the past 30 years, 25 of them as the former President’s Chief of Staff after he left office. Just two and a half weeks ago, she closed the doors of the Office of George Bush for the last time. In her first sit down interview since then, Jean shares just a few of the treasure trove of stories rolling around in her head. Some will make you laugh, some might bring a tear to your eye, and some, regardless of your politics, will remind us all how the former President and First Lady embodied civility.
