Ask Ron Olson to talk about himself and he defers: "My wife, Jane, is the interesting one." Ask Jane, and she demurs: "There's not much to say. Shouldn't you focus just on Ron?"

"If there's a marriage made in heaven, this is it," Jane says with a smile. "It's grown in romance (since) the empty nest."
