Barbara Jeske was 63 when she died on September 3, 2014.
Barbara was born in Grand Haven, Michigan to Raymond and Ruth Jeske and resided in Clifton Park, New York for the last 22 years of her life.
She was formerly a member of St. John’s Lutheran Church of Grand Haven, MI and Redeemer Lutheran Church of Stuart, FL. Barbara attended Michigan State University, and became a member of the harem of Keith Raniere.
She was a pre-Vanguard harem member.
After Vanguard tired of her, Barbara lived with her dogs.
She brought a lot of people into ESP and was given the Purple Sash, the highest rank, along with Pam Cafritz, another harem member who is also deceased.
Barb’s father Raymond outlived her as did her sisters, Beverly and Cynthia, and her brother, Brad. She was predeceased by her mother, Ruth, and brother, David.
Barb – despite being the highest ranked on the stripe path, a Purple – died broke and in debt.
She was not a Keith-built millionaire.
In fact, she did not make millionaire status despite not paying taxes. Here is a federal tax lien filed against Barbara in 2007 for $126, 953.
She died of brain cancer. Keith told her when she first started feeling unwell that she had carpel tunnel syndrome.
Here are a few pics of Barb.
Many slaves in Raniere-world owe their ruination to Barb, and yet she possibly was unaware of the harm she did to others…
