Jan met her husband, Andy, twenty-two years earlier, and is proud of her family, particularly as both her sons have grown up without getting into trouble. As her parents died young, Jan has been close to her aunt, Eva Holbrook, and has tried to attribute Eva's tendency to send Matt books and reading related gifts as forgetfulness. Knowing Matt's aversion to reading as a result of his dyslexia, Jan often exchanged Matt's gifts from Eva for money. As with the rest of Matt's family, she supports Matt by reminding him of what skills he does have rather instead of worrying about his difficulty reading.
Along with Vicky Mulholland, Jan is a friend of Celia Jones. She has known both women since their children had been in primary school and from sharing the same babysitting circle. When Celia's son Jago is hospitalized for a mysterious illness, Jan and Vicky take turns accompanying Celia in the Intensive Care Unit as a means of supporting their friend.
