This page features death notices and information about funeral services pertaining to deceased members of the Jesuit High School community. The page is frequently updated and is based mainly on information contained in the death notices published on Times-Picayune and in the N.O. Advocate. The list of deceased is also compiled and printed in Jaynotes, Jesuit’s alumni publication. Jesuit alumni who live outside the metro New Orleans region are encouraged to email information about their deceased loved ones to Maura Owers. Her direct phone at Jesuit is (504) 483-3947. Inquiries and questions about information for In Memoriam should be directed to Maura.

For In Memoriam listings prior to June 1, 2013, visit Jesuit’s website archives.

  • We ask that you provide ONLY one relationship that the deceased individual has to a Jesuit alumnus. We will confirm all other alumni relatives.
