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.

Now that their sophomore seasons at Boise State are complete, Sperbeck of Jesuit High School and Vallejo of Nevada Union return to class Monday riding a wave of momentum, hungry for more.

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.

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.”

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.”

Ex-Olympian Stember to race in Run to Feed the Hungry
Michael Stember '96 will run to raise money for the American Indian Public Charter School

From the Sacramento Bee

By Sam McManis

Picture Aretha Franklin timidly answering a cattle call for “America’s Got Talent” or Robert De Niro deigning to do community theater.

That, at first blush, seems to be what former Olympic middle distance runner Michael Stember will be doing when he pins on a race bib for the 18th Run to Feed the Hungry in Sacramento on Thanksgiving.


UC Merced Connect: Small is big for busy student
Ian Donahue ['08] knows a thing or two about small class sizes.

From the Sacramento Bee

Coming from a private high school in Sacramento, Ian Donahue knows a thing or two about small class sizes.
The 21-year-old UC Merced senior who attended Jesuit High School has been having flashbacks to his high school days lately, especially in courses for his materials science and engineering major, which often have as few as 10 students per class.

The small size of the newest UC campus was a major reason for Donahue’s decision to attend UC Merced, as well as the people on campus.

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.”
