First year working at Jesuit: 2008
Julia Clark is a member of the Office of Advancement. As the Director of Annual Giving, she is responsible for raising money for the operating budget to meet the gap between what a family pays for tuition and the full-cost of a Jesuit education. Born in Fresno, CA, Julia worked in the telcom industry for 21 years before retiring. She is the mother of Neil (JHS ’07) and Katie (SFHS ’12). She began her professional relationship with Jesuit in 2004. In her spare time she loves to read, entertain, and spend time with family and friends.
Fr. Edwin B. Harris, S.J., is now on his 4th “Tour of Duty” at Jesuit High School. He entered the Jesuits in 1963 after having graduated from St. Ignatius High School in San Francisco. Most of his active Jesuit career has been associated with Secondary Education, including assignments at St. Ignatius College Preparatory (San Francisco), Bellarmine College Preparatory (San Jose), and Jesuit High School (Sacramento). He has an MA in European History and an M.Div. in Theology.
Maureen Banchero Longyear is the Vice President for Advancement of Jesuit High School. She is responsible for designing, directing and evaluating all advancement strategies to address the annual operations, long-term capital and endowment needs.
Mrs. Longyear is a native of Sacramento where she attended Loretto High School before attending Santa Clara University. Maureen transferred to the University of California, Berkeley and was awarded her Bachelor of Science in marketing from the Haas School of Business. After pursuing a successful career in media sales, Mrs. Longyear “retired” to raise three children, John ’99, Michael ’01 and Kate (Loretto High ’06). In 2003 and 2004 Mrs. Longyear co-chaired the Jesuit Auction as a volunteer and accepted a position in Development. In 2006 she was named Director of Development and was promoted to the Vice President for Advancement in 2012.
