Jan began her career with the Los Angeles County Fire Department in 1999 and promoted from firefighter to engineer to fire captain. She was an avid tennis player, skier, scuba diver and bicyclist. Life for Jan always seemed like a fun adventure, partially because of the adventurous things she did, but mostly because of the adventurous spirit with which she approached everything. Jan had an infectious spirit and zest for life that was her gift to all who knew her. Sister Chatelain died of job-related lung cancer at the age of 52.
