Jim Kesey

My name is Jim Kesey, a local author and I am in the process of promoting my newest novel “A Good Place to Die.” I have been a long time member of Kiwanis and for those of you who are Rotarians I apologize. 


I was born and raised in Oregon, a graduate of Colorado State University, an Officer in the Marine Corps and Vietnam Veteran and a retired Juvenile Counselor. My first cousin is renowned Ken Kesey (One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest and Sometimes a Great
Notion). As a result I bring to the presentation stories of growing up with Ken.
