Chris Edison BA ’84


Chris Edison BA ’84 and Anna Edison BA ’85 have been married for more than 30 years and have three children: Molly (Pitzer ’18), a recent college graduate; Jamie (Whitman ’14), a software engineer in San Diego; and Alex (Bowdoin ’13), who is finishing his doctorate in theoretical physics at the University of California at Los Angeles. In recent years, Anna and Chris have met significant health challenges head on and appreciate each day as a gift. Chris was diagnosed with Young-Onset Parkinson’s 13 years ago, is retired, and works hard to keep strong in the face of his disease. Anna was diagnosed with breast cancer four years ago but is now cancer free. She has joined a dragon boat team made up mostly of cancer survivors, who celebrate their resilience by racing throughout the Northwest.
