David Jarmul writes Not Exactly Retired, chronicling the adventures he and his wife, Champa, have been pursuing since mid-2015, when he stepped down as the head of news and communications for Duke University. (His colleagues sent him off with this amazing video.)
David previously held senior communications positions at the National Academy of Sciences and the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. He and Champa met when he served as a Peace Corps volunteer in Nepal, in the same school where Champa was teaching.
Married in 1979, they have been living for many years in Durham, N.C. They have two sons and daughters-in-law and six grandchildren. In June 2016, they began serving as volunteers with the Peace Corps in Moldova, in eastern Europe. They completed their service there in July 2018.
