Jean was born in East Boston in 1938, the daughter of Vincent and Albina Crescenzo. She moved to Malden at an early age, and she graduated from Malden High School with the Class of 1956. In 1958, she married her sweetheart, Frank P. Gortot, and the two settled down in Malden to raise their family. They shared nearly 40 years together until Frank's passing in 1996. Jean worked for the federal government for many years, first with the Federal Department of Transportation, and later in a security role. She retired in 1995.
