Jeff Meyer is a retired systems engineer from The Boeing Company, where he provided Research, Development and Technology support to key franchise programs for more than 30 years. Jeff’s boys, Jack and Cooper, joined the chess club in 3rd Grade and it ignited in them a passion for the game. “As their chess skills improved, I noticed parallel improvement in school and home life. They have become more patient, thoughtful, and diligent in completing homework and chores, and they’ve grown in their consideration for others,” Jeff says. Jeff’s daughter Kate joined the chess team in 4th grade simply because of the fun she had tagging along with her brothers at events. “The Madison City Chess League continues to be pivotal in providing the academic structure and resources for my kids success,” he continues. “I want to encourage and provide opportunities for other children in our community to achieve similar success.”
