There are now five drink sizes at Starbucks: Short, Tall, Grande, Venti, and Chuck Cross

Chuck Cross, former Director of Consumer Services for the Washington State Department of Financial Institutions is on his way to the other Washington to serve within the Conference of State Bank Supervisors.

From late 2002 through 2005 he investigated Ameriquest Mortgage and served on the multi-state Executive Committee for the country’s second largest predatory lending case, which was filed and settled in March 2006.

  1. Jillayne,

    Sounds like my kind of guy…taking names and kicking ass is he?

    Nice meeting you at my party the other night…sorry you arrived late after I was a bit out of it…hope I didn’t scare you by banging on the glass table. Splain to Jonathan up there…I write the way I speak. I’m more scary in person 🙂

  2. Ardell, you are not scary in person. Tell Kim thanks as well! We enjoyed meeting you! Sorry Kerry was too shy. She wanted to come and meet you, but I told her she would HAVE to be social and come out of her shell in new places with new faces. So much for that. Anyway, thanks for the invite and Pasta.

  3. Hi Reba,

    LOL. Because Chuck Norris could round-house kick all the predatory lenders out of the universe.

    I’m not a rabid Noriss fan, my 13 year-old introduced me to the Chuck Norris random facts website; she thinks they are hilarious. Chuck Cross is highly regarded in the industry here in WA state, not quite as much as Chuck Norris’ fans adore him, but Cross has done lots of good work here in WA state, including taking down some p-lenders locally and nationally plus working with the industry on the long-anticipated state licensing of loan originators, effective Jan 1, 07.

  4. Jillayne, no substance here just fact, took your class yesterday, (real estate 2.0) and here I am blogsurfing for the first time and in by chance mode i find you. Great class, informative fun interactive exercises that make the content stick to your brain. just a hey and an attaboy.

    Thanks again Larry

  5. Hey, thanks, Larry! I did notice that at the first break you and Lynette had a small crowd gathered around your table as she was one of the only four agents in the room with a blog. I’m sure I’ll see you in class again soon.
