Jay Leno, Comedian & Television Personality
by Kathy Crockett
Henry Winkler, Director & Actor
I had the privilege of meeting Jay Leno when I was in my thirties. I found him to be very personable, warm and authentic.
I met the “Fonz” on the set of Happy Days. At the time, I was dating the set director for the show and was invited to be in studio. He was very sweet, almost shy and used his character as the Fonz to bring himself out.
Charles Schwab, Founder of The Charles Schwab Corporation
Richard Rogers, Architect
One of Dyslexia Voice’s board of directors, Stephanie Setmire, shared an elevator ride (in San Francisco) with Charles Schwab. It was just the two of them. Stephanie had just finished hearing him speak at a dyslexia event and now was face to face with this amazing person. She asked him one question. “Mr. Schwab, what is your “super power” that has lead to your successes in life? He responded, “I have an amazing ability to know what to do and solve the problem before anyone else!”
Jack Horner, Paleontologist
I’ve met him. He has a great sense of humor and is very down to earth.
