Physics teacher Mr. Lawrence Simon ’13 is one of the newest members of our staff at Jesuit High School. Just like other faculty alumni, Mr. Simon once roamed the halls as a student. However, physics did not come to Mr. Simon naturally.
Jesuit High School was thrilled to welcome back the classes of 1968, ’78, ’88,’98, and ’08 for Alumni Weekend, which took place on Oct. 12-14. Each of those classes had their own reunion on Saturday night, with other events taking place throughout the weekend for alums of any class that wanted to participate. Over 200 alums joined us throughout the weekend, and each one of them seemed to enjoy the festivities.
Jon Rotz ’92 walks around 1200 Jacob Lane as Jesuit High School’s Assistant Director of Admissions and as an Assistant Varsity Basketball Coach, but it wasn’t too long ago that Rotz was walking to class on these very same grounds. Rotz recalls fondly his time as a student at Jesuit High School, and recognizes how his time as a student impacted his decision to join Jesuit’s staff.
In this day of fast moving communication, having up-to-date contact information is critical to keeping our Alums in touch with the latest news at Jesuit, and to help our Alumni stay in touch with each other.
It has been 8 years since our last directory project. Therefore, we are partnering with Publishing Concepts (PCI) to help us with our “Stay in Touch” project. PCI is an industry leader, with university and high school clients from across the nation.
PCI is contacting all of our living alumni – 9,891 Marauders – via mail, email and phone calls, inviting you to participate. We understand that some may have questions about this project, so are providing some additional information. We want you to know that their request for your information is being done our behalf, and that your info is safe and secure.
