Jean Mitchell Andersen, of Novato, California, passed away on May 19, 2019, she was 60 years old.

Jean was born in Michigan City, IN and raised in Newton, IL. She lived and worked in the hotel and incentive travel business in Chicago, Orlando and Marco Island, FL, Tucson, AZ and several places in the San Francisco Bay area. Most recently, Jean was the West Coast Sales Executive for ClubMed Meetings and Incentives. Jean was a strong-willed, independent person of high energy with a beautiful smile. She brought a ray of sunshine into the lives of everyone she met. She was a creative cook and foodie who loved to travel, dance, softball and to play practical jokes. She was a fun class and team mom and always gave her time, food, attention and hugs to friends and community.

She is survived by her father and mother, Kenneth and Carol Mitchell; brothers, Steve and Doug Mitchell; sisters, Jill Alkhalaf and LeaAnn Slotkin; husband, Kurt Andersen and son, Jack Andersen.

In lieu of flowers, Jean prefers donations to St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital.

She left this world much too early. I am so grateful I was blessed to build a family and community of great friends in our 20+ years together! Kurt
