Although not a graduate of Jesuit High School myself, I often encounter Blue Jay alumni who are successful, fiercely loyal, and always willing to help others unconditionally. When our son William was born, Paulette and I had hopes that he would become a Blue Jay and be exposed to all that the Jesuit community has to offer. After Katrina, like so many other New Orleanians, we were forced to relocate. Our family resided in Fort Worth, Texas for seven years, but decided to return home — just so William could attend Jesuit. We support the school’s Parents’ Annual Giving drive so William and others can benefit from a quality Jesuit education. We look forward to our son’s graduation with the Class of 2017.
