Jeran Hooten—Competing for 55 Years and Counting

By Melanie Moore – June 6, 2012

Not just a waterski competitor, Jeran Hooten lives the dream. He and his wife, Janet, and their family, all ski. More, they help out as officials at regional competitions. On a recent weekend, Hooten was Safety Director for a competition and his wife was a scorer. Hooten, 69, is an orthodontist who grew up skiing on Lake Austin. Now the Hootens co-own Frame Switch Ski Lakes in Taylor where they train, host competitions, and provide the space for others to train—including the University of Texas Water Ski Club.
