Getting to Know Tom Jelke, Executive Dean for Spring 2013

In his first voyage as Executive Dean, Dr. Tom Jelke shares with us the unique qualities that make him come back to the ship for his sixth Semester at Sea voyage.  Tom is sailing with his wife Rebecca, and sons Parker (a 4-year-old in his second voyage) and 21-month-old Julian, and hopes the experience is truly life-changing for everyone on this journey.

In addition to being an avid traveler who is passionate about the Semester at Sea program, Tom is a black belt in Tae Kwon Do, a competitive ballroom dancer, a deep-water scuba diver, and the President of T.Jelke Solutions in Miami, Florida.
