My wife is Annette Schiffer. We met on a blind date on May 1, 1965, and have lived in marital bliss since December 22, 1968. She is the most caring, sexy, wise, and wonderful woman I know. Annette is a college advisor, helping high school students become acquainted with colleges, scholarships, and application processes. She worked for eight years at Tucson High Magnet School, where she founded the College and Career Center. She has also worked at the Luz Academy, a charter school in Tucson, as well as Edison High School in Alexandria, Virginia. She is currently at the Greater Washington College Information Center, Washington, D.C. Her passion is to help economically disadvantaged students find their way to college. She loves animals, especially birds, and we enjoy bird-watching together.
Our oldest son is Adam Joseph Schiffer (right in the picture below), who was born on October 2, 1973 in Fayetteville, Arkansas. He received his Ph.D. in political science at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, in 2003. Adam's specialty is American Studies, especially the interaction of politics and the media. He is, among other things, an avid baseball and basketball fan, lover of popular music, and an awesome writer. Adam is Assistant Professor of Political Science at TCU, Fort Worth, Texas. He takes teaching far more seriously than his old man.

Our second son is Jeremy Alan (center-right in the picture). He is the only native Tucsonan in the family, born on October 31, 1977. Jeremy graduated from Carleton College in 1999, where he majored in anthropology-sociology. Until summer 2004, he was the computer security specialist at Columbia University in New York City. He attended Fordham University law school in Manhattan, receiving his degree in 2007. He is currently an associate attorney at Akin Gump Strauss Hauer and Feld, in Washington, D.C., specializing in energy, land use, and environment. Jeremy has many interests, including computers, biking and hiking, and playing the clarinet.
