People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered. Forgive them anyway. If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives. Be kind anyway. If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies. Succeed anyway. If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you. Be honest and sincere anyway. What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight. Create anyway. If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous. Be happy anyway. The good you do today, will often be forgotten. Do good anyway. Give the best you have, and it will never be enough. Give your best anyway. In the final analysis, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.

Jerome Sheehan Artisan Baker – Jerry helped us by supplying us with his delicious artisan delicacies, including pretzels, pies, focacio, and breads. Born and raised in Delaware County – Upper Darby, Havertown and Springfield. Graduated from St. Joseph’s University with a B.A. in German Literature and B.S. in Accounting. Studied in Marburg, Germany for 1 year. After college he began a career in accounting and finance. During his 20+ years in business he lived and worked in Germany for 3 years during which time he traveled extensively for both business and pleasure through all the countries of Western Europe. Also lived and worked in Mexico for 2.5 years. While in Mexico he visited on several occasions Argentina and Venezuela. Lived and worked in Manhattan for 2 years as well.
Eventually made a decision to change careers. Wanted to work with my hands and produce something tangible and that he could be proud of. Ever since the time he studied and then later worked in Germany he was intrigued by the varieties and high quality of the breads sold throughout all the towns, villages and cities of Germany and for that matter all of Europe. Started to read books about breads, did several internships in artisanal bakeries, and took several courses and then began to bake on my own European style breads. Now he bakes full time and serves restaurants, retail stores and farmers markets with his breads.
His contact information is: 793 W. Rolling Rd., Springfield, PA 19064, 484-832-9770, Jeromesheehan54@gmail.com.
