Jeff Epstein’s Prep School Students Describe What He Was Like Back Then, The Signs Were All There

This doesn't bode well.

Before Jeffrey Epstein became the well-known repeat sex crime offender with a whole lot of money that knows one really knows where it came from that he is today, he spent the early 1970s teaching at the Dalton School, a private prep-school located on the Upper East Side of Manhattan.

And according to a few anonymous individuals who took his class, the man was just as creepy back then as he is now — describing him as a man who “dressed flamboyantly” had a “thick New York accent” and was “very high energy and dynamic.”

Epstein was brought on to the staff at the Dalton School to teach both math and science by none other than Attorney General Bill Barr’s father and headmaster of the school, Donald Barr.


“What we’ve all been wondering,” one former student of Epstein’s mused, “is how did this guy get his job in the first place, without a degree.”

Barr, who has been described as a “no-nonsense” sort of fellow, reportedly saw promise in the young Epstein who was barely in his early 20’s at the time of his hiring.

Epstein quickly and easily impressed both parents and students during his short time with the Dalton School and in just two short years managed to transition from teaching the children of Wall Streeters to somehow becoming a Wall Streeter himself, with a starter job at Bear Stearns as floor trader assistant.

Students recall the then-teacher telling them that his relationship with Bear Stearns chairman Alan “Ace” Greenberg’s daughter, Lynne Greenberg helped to catapult him into the Wall Street position. Though described as hearsay, it has also been reported that Epstein personally tutored Greenberg’s son, which may have ultimately secured the position.

It was more than 30 years after Epstein left Bear, the details of his finances and where all of his money actually came from still a mystery, that Jeffrey was first nailed for his heinous sex crimes and managed to strike one hell of a sweetheart deal with then-US Attorney in Miami, Alexander Acosta.

It seems the man has a long line of secrecy, weirdness, and downright creepiness to go with his heaping helping of disgustingness these days.
