Hello from Brian Paul Kaess, a U.S. Disabled Veteran (10%) living in the South  suburbs of Durango, Mexico. I hail from Chicago and grew up on the North Side. I have been married twice, 1st to Ellen Byrd Elliott in 1986, and 2nd to Mayte Urbina Pereda in 2000. I have one son Paul Jesus Kaess.  

I served in both the U.S. Army and U.S. Marines (in Cuba). I graduated from St. Gregory Elementary School and Lane Tech High School (both in Chicago) and have an A.S. from Northern Virginia Community College and a B.A. cum laude from Northeastern Illinois University. I have worked as a Clerk, Registrar, and ESL Instructor. I taught English abroad in South Korea.

I love pet cats and my hobby is Genealogy.
