Nan Powell

Nan Jared Powell was raised in Gainesville, Georgia. She attended Brenau College to get her teaching degree. After graduation, she moved to Atlanta to teach elementary school. Her passion for teaching kept her in the classroom for 22 years.

She spent over 30 years in Washington DC with her husband, Jody Powell. After his death in 2009, she settled in Williamsburg, Virginia to be close to family.

She is continuing her enthusiasm for teaching by sharing her genealogy with her family in The Jared Line.


To learn more about Nan’s father, Edmond F. Jared, check out his memoir, One Hell of a Ride.

Ranging from above the Himalayan Mountains to the beginnings of Lake Lanier in Georgia, from solitude of solo flight to the fellowship of family life and civic organizations, and from the discipline of the military to the ever-changing world of business, Ed Jared gives us one “Greatest Generation” perspective on his experience of the twentieth century as he tells us the story of his rich and fascinating life. His life was One Hell of a Ride.
