Dr. Jerome Daniel Schein was born on May 27, 1923 in Minneapolis, Minnesota, the youngest of three sons of Adolph and Jeanette Green Schein. Upon graduation from North High School in Minneapolis in 1941, he attended the University of Minnesota. Dr. Schein received his B.A. in 1946, M.A. in 1947, and Ph.D. in 1958, all in psychology.

From 1958 to 1959, Dr. Schein was an instructor of clinical psychology at the University of Wisconsin. The following year, he accepted a position at Florida State University as assistant professor of clinical psychology. His association with Gallaudet University began in 1960, when he was appointed professor of psychology.

He was the David Peikoff Chair of Deafness Studies at the University of Alberta from 1989 to 1992, and still serves as adjunct professor of education there.
