Berkeley Stories is a monthly series featuring the extraordinary ordinary people all around us. The people that make Berkeley the unique place it is, and whose hands have touched our lives in unseen ways.
This Month, meet Jaco Roesch. By bicycle the world is his Route 66—to China and beyond. Berkeley is his home. (Or is it Jupiter?)
BHS. UCLA. Music. Couch-surfer. Wild camper. Laborer. Teacher. Spain. Morocco. Turkey. Uzbekistan. China. Tibetan Plateau. Thailand. New Guinea. But always back to Berkeley.
Let’s hear his story.
