An Interview with Ken O’Brien ‘78

Ken O’Brien

We know … we know—he was selected ahead of Dan Marino in the 1983 Draft. But the greatest quarterback in New York Jets history (not named Namath) had a rifle for an arm, oodles of confidence and a couple of Pro Bowl appearances. Plus, he’s got one helluva Herschel Walker story.

Tanner Vallejo was raised a linebacker in a family full of them, in attack mode in everything he did.

Alumni Annual Fund Participation
Help us ring in a new era for Jesuit Alumni!

Alumni Giving

Throughout our history, Jesuit alumni have traditionally contributed to the Annual Fund at a 5% participation rate. Previously, we have leaned on our relative youth as an institution to justify our modest numbers. Today, we must turn the page on our organizational adolescence. It is time to ring in a new era and begin participating at a higher level.

Year 2: Be part of the journey!

“We are really excited to let you know about a great opportunity for our Jesuit community.  The Jesuit Gridiron Club is a group of alums, parents and friends who want to support Jesuit High School Sacramento and, in particular, Jesuit Football.  We will get together at games, tailgate at the Holy Bowl, and support the team in a variety of different ways.  For those of us who took a lot from our experience with J-High football, and for those who continue to support the team from the bleachers, this is a great way to get involved.

From Carmichael Patch

By Victor Calderon

Did you “Guess the Jesuit Teacher”?

It’s Colin O’Connor, Patch’s Teacher of the Month for December.

O’Connor is a 2004 Jesuit graduate and is in his third year at Jesuit, teaching English to freshmen and juniors. He is also an assistant coach for the Marauders varsity water polo and swimming teams.

“It made it very comfortable for me,” O’Connor said of returning to teach at Jesuit. “I knew the educational model and it’s a very supportive administration.”


Basketball Update

Jesuit has begun the year with three victories in the book against Nor Cal # 18 Dublin, perennial Sacramento area power Franklin of Elk Grove, and Bishop Manogue of Nevada.  This year’s version of the Jesuit Marauders basketball Varsity Team is hoping to accomplish big things with such a strong core returning and many new additions from last year’s lower levels.

This is right around the time of the year when Dudley Adair’s side business starts to get busy.

The Carmichael native and his wife, who moved from Carmichael to Lincoln about four years ago, are weight loss coaches with Take Shape for Life, a company whose “coaches” sell meal replacements and provide weight loss plans and advice.

“We talk to people starting now with the holiday season upon us,” Adair said. “People seem more willing to listen at this time of the year than any other.”

Hometown Report: [Ken O'Brien '78] supports Raiders’ trade for Palmer

From the Sacramento Bee

By Joe Davidson

Ken O’Brien wasn’t just on the Carson Palmer bandwagon – he was steering it.

O’Brien, the former Jesuit High School [class of 1978] and UC Davis quarterback who had two Pro Bowl seasons with the New York Jets, worked out Palmer in recent months to keep the “retired” quarterback’s joints from rusting.

After learning of Palmer’s acquisition by the Raiders, O’Brien beamed and said he backed Raiders coach Hue Jackson’s claim that Oakland had pulled off “the greatest trade in football.”

Searching for perfection in a Woodland field, Tom Heaton spends countless hours in the sun. Where else would he be? He’s devoted his life’s work to a flower that’s synonymous with bright summer days.

“Isn’t that pretty?” Heaton said with obvious pride when he spotted a luminous white flower edged with pink. “A lot of things out here you’ve never seen before.”

Who knew you could toss spinach into a fruit smoothie and have no one be the wiser?

Eric Olsen, for one. Olsen, vice president of finance and risk at Ray Stone Inc., volunteered himself and the company’s management team to take turns riding a stationary bike outfitted with a blender to produce smoothies for winners of a company fitness contest.

The smoothies were based on a recipe supplied by Partnership for a Healthy California, which also supplied the bicycle.
