Jessie, who turned 109 last January, explained "'My secret to a long life has been staying away from men. They're just more trouble than they're worth". "I also made sure that I got plenty of exercise, eat a nice warm bowl of porridge every morning, and have never gotten married."
The 109-year-old has been independent her whole life, working hard since she was 13 and didn’t take any vacation. Her last job was a waitress.
"I have never had to depend on anybody," Gallan said during the interview, "but I'm fine."
