About Jeanni

Jeanni Blume

Diamond Life Master

I am Jeanni (St. Jean) Blume, a bridge player, ACBL Director, Registered Teacher, Club Manager, Paid Partner, and Life Master since 1982 with over 7,200 masterpoints.

My family moved to Pembroke Pines in 1958.  I met Paul Blume at our 30th class reunion.  We were in the first graduating class of Nova High School in Davie.  Paul and I married August 2002, and we invited all bridge players in three counties to celebrate at our reception at Pompano Beach Bridge Club.

I am constantly thinking of you and how to help you reach your bridge goals, whether they be masterpoints or just your personal best.
