John and Sarah Jaffe Turnbull both arrived on the East End in the early 1980s, but they didn’t meet until 15 years ago. “I heard that John taught a karate class for children, so I called him to see where the program was. My son Max started taking classes, and one thing led to another.”
Married for 13 years, each pursues a number of different interests, including ceramics for her and martial arts for him, and both are committed to public service. “We have a good collaboration,” Ms. Turnbull said.
