to Jesuit Today. This issue provides a glimpse into the end of another outstanding year at Jesuit. It was a year filled with alumni achievements, student successes in the classroom and on the field, service to those in need around the world, celebrations of community, and generous support from our volunteers and donors. While space doesn’t allow us to share all that was good about the 2011-2012 academic year, we think you’ll agree it was a year that brought us many reasons to be thankful.

Jesuit College Preparatory School of Dallas

The formation of Men for Others is the defining trait of Jesuit Dallas. We share insights into how Men for Others are formed from the perspectives of three men who are both alumni and faculty members. As we celebrate graduation with the Class of 2012—recognizing the achievements of this brotherhood of exceptional young men and sharing their college destinations—we do so with confidence that they will continue to be Men for Others as they find their place in the world outside the walls of Jesuit.

We look forward to the year ahead—the school’s 70th— and invite you to participate in the life of Jesuit. Check out the upcoming events listed on page four and mark your calendar for fall football, homecoming festivities, service opportunities and more.

In Memoriam

Message from the President May is a very exciting month in the Jesuit calendar. Who can deny that graduation, which takes place on the fourth Saturday of May, is special? While the graduation ceremony is a milestone event, it actually holds little meaning in academia as the allimportant transcript, rather than the diploma, certifies that one is a bona fide graduate. So I feel comfortable proposing that another May activity may actually be more important in the life of a senior. That is the Senior Mass and Breakfast, an annual Mother’s Day celebration. At Jesuit, we honor the bond of a mother and her son throughout the four years of a student’s life. As I watch mothers drop off their sons at Jesuit for the first time, I imagine the thoughts and emotions running through their minds. I have often wondered if Mary had similar feelings when she knew Jesus was about to embark on his Father’s work. There is a bronze by Robert Nicpon entitled “The Call of the Father…The Will to Serve” that captures the emotion and thoughts of this event. It depicts Jesus as a young man, pulling away from his reluctant-to-let-go-of-him mother. What always strikes me is that Mary and Jesus have their right hands clutched, fingers entwined over Mary’s heart. Jesus is taking steps, with his left arm raised forward, obviously looking toward the future, a future that will require Mary to let go of her son. As painful as the separation process is for parents and sons, it is indeed part of the plan that was set in motion from the first day those sons were dropped off at Jesuit. During his time at Jesuit, each young man has been given the ability to realize his dreams, to continue to listen to God’s voice in guiding his actions and to help to bring God’s Kingdom through his work. We wish each member of the Class of 2012 all of God’s blessings as he goes out into the world as one more Man for Others.

Michael A. Earsing

Baseball Hall of Fame game and Alumni Family Day activities added to the fun as Rangers Baseball took to the field in the revamped ballpark in March. Players appreciated the new dugouts, fans enjoyed the upgraded bleachers, and announcers appreciated the premium press box. Before a great night of baseball, longtime favorite coach and Jesuit Sports Hall of Fame member Rufe Bruton ’55 warmed up to throw out the first pitch while Agustin Gonzales ’94 outfitted his boys in Rangers gear to take the mound as winners of a pre-game contest.

When Charles Edmond ’58 visited Jesuit on April 30, it was his first return to the school since he became the first black student to graduate from the school in 1958. Accompanied by his wife, Ruth, and family members including his son, his sister, and his nephew, Edmond met with classmates and spoke to students about his experience attending Jesuit in the segregated world of 1950s Dallas. The Dallas Morning News covered the historic visit, which Ruth and Charles Edmond promised would not be their last.

NEWS+NOTES Peggy Haden Woman of the Year At its spring luncheon, the JWA recognized Peggy Haden as its Woman of the Year for more than forty years of service to Jesuit. It would be difficult to find a volunteer role at the school that Peggy has not filled. She continues to lend a hand wherever she’s needed, even if it requires crawling on the floor to remove tape after the Christmas Bazaar. Shown here with Mike Earsing, a highlight of the event was their impromptu duet of a favorite from Guys and Dolls.

Remembering Jim Walsh James Gerard Walsh, who lived a life of dedication to Jesuit Dallas, died peacefully May 1. He began his 47-year career of service to the school as the varsity basketball coach and history teacher. Later roles included athletic director and vice president of development. He was instrumental in the creation of The Jesuit Foundation, for which he served as president. His commitment to service extended to the Dallas community, particularly to Catholic causes and institutions, as well as national and international institutions. The Jesuit community mourns his loss but celebrates his legacy of generations of Jesuit students.

Day in the Life of a Refugee


On March 28, the Terry Center was transformed to allow students to experience two separate refugee camp situations. One was modeled after the Kakuma Refugee Camp in Kenya, Africa while the other was modeled after Asian refugee camps, including those serving Bhutanese refugees in Nepal. During A Day in the Life of a Refugee, students gained appreciation for the struggles of displaced persons while the evening presented opportunities for the broader community.

What an Evening

Up to the Challenge

Thanks to the support of hundreds of volunteers and generous supporters, 2012 Celebration Auction Co-chairwomen Jackie Costanza and Debbie Bradshaw not only threw a great party, An Evening in the Wine Country, but were able to present a check for more than $631,000 to President Mike Earsing and Chairman of the the Jesuit Foundation Finance Committee, Michael Marz ’74. The funds provide financial aid to students whose families could not otherwise afford to send their sons to Jesuit. Mark your calendar for April 13, 2013, when the Celebration Auction will bring you a fun-filled Run for the Roses at the Omni Hotel Dallas.

2012 Challenge Drive Chairman Joe Coleman, assisted by Co-chairman Chris Barnet (R-L), leads parents of current students to surpass last year’s record-setting $882,000 raised. Contributions to the drive help the school bridge the gap between tuition and the full cost of educating each student. This year’s drive will culminate with Challenge Drive Sunday on October 14.

edro Arrupe, S.J. challenged educators to train “men for others” during a speech in Valencia, Spain, in 1973.

Since his radical challenge to the prevailing view of education, this call has taken root in Jesuit schools and universities around the world. Recently, Principal Tom Garrison ’92 faced an opportunity to show his commitment to living as a “man for others.” His decision and a conversation he later had with the senior class raised several questions: How does such a lofty ideal become real? How is it put into action? How does a school form “men for others”? What follows are experiences of three alumni whose perspectives as both former Jesuit students and current faculty members offer unique insight. summer 2012

Above: The class of 2012 listens as Garrison shares his personal story. Previous Page (top to bottom): Senior photos of Tom Garrison ’92, Raul Ornelas ’01, and Tim Murphy ’06.

Tom Garrison ’92 The members of the Class of 2012 gather for their final class meeting and Tom Garrison begins to speak, “…Teach me to be generous. Teach me to serve you as you deserve. To give and not to count the cost….” I’m going to share a very personal story. It’s not easy for me to talk about, which you’ll understand, but you’ll also understand why it’s important to share the story. “This story begins with a 44-year-old man in Germany. He might have been on vacation with his family. He might have been worried about a child. He might have been looking forward to his daughter’s wedding. He probably ignored the symptoms for a time—rationalized them away. Eventually he couldn’t ignore the pain in his bones, the bruising, and the fatigue. He saw his doctor and was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia. Treatment began with great hope for success, but he found himself getting sicker. He received the news that his only hope for survival was a stem cell transplant. Family members were checked, but none was a match. His team of physicians checked the donor registry in

16 |

Germany but found no match. Registries across Europe failed to produce a match. “November 4, 2010 was a busy day for me. We were having a bone marrow registry drive on campus but as the day passed, I hadn’t found ten minutes to walk to the Terry Center. Father Postell stopped in to see if I had registered and strongly encouraged me to make the effort. I am grateful that he did. It’s easy to rationalize that we don’t have time or someone else will do it. This brings up the first of three lessons I want to leave with you today. The lesson is to take advantage of opportunities. Registering meant little to me at the time, but it literally meant the world to someone else.” Ten months after Garrison joined the bone marrow registry, his life and the life of the man in Germany became entwined. Garrison found he was the only match in the world and his donation was the patient’s only hope for survival. After confirming that he was still willing to become a donor if further testing proved him suitable, the process of donation moved with unusual urgency since the waiting recipient was near death. A phone interview sought to determine Garrison’s general state of health, particularly the health of his blood. Questions focused on behaviors that

could result in sexually transmitted disease or disease associated with illicit drug use. Garrison tells the senior class, “This part of the process and subsequent tests to determine my suitability as a donor introduces the second lesson I want you to remember, especially as you go to college and all the temptations that will bring. Remember that your body is on loan to you. Take care of your body. You never know when you will be called on to help someone else.” As Garrison struggled through the emotions that come from being so closely tied to another man’s mortality, he learned that 47% of people who match a waiting recipient decline to follow through with a donation. With the words of St.

he asked his caseworker what else he could do to improve the outcome for the transplant patient, the response was unexpected, “You could be an 18-year-old male.” Garrison realized he had a unique opportunity to share the need for bone marrow donors with more than 200 people at Jesuit who fit that description. This opportunity eclipsed his desire to keep the experience private. As the students prepare for graduation, Garrison tells the class of 2012, “I don’t tell you about this experience because it makes me special. It’s not about me. We all have the power to make life better for someone else. Take advantage of opportunities to do that. As Ignatius said, give without asking for reward. As a marrow donor, you give a gift to someone you may never meet; that person may not even live to enjoy it. The outcome is not in our hands, but the gift is. Finally, this experience has reminded me that life is precious—treasure it.”

Raul Ornelas ’01

Tom Garrison ’92 joins a student in the information commons

Ignatius in his mind, Garrison committed to the donation, prepared to make whichever of two types of donation is required. One involves general anesthesia and marrow extracted from the bone. The other, a peripheral blood stem cell (PBSC) transplant, involves a regimen of medication to increase the donor’s production of hematopoietic stem cells followed by having blood filtered through an apheresis machine. As Ranger Day Homecoming activities ramped up at Jesuit, Garrison began receiving shots of Filgrastim in preparation for a PBSC donation. These shots cause aching bones, and he empathized with the growing pains of teens. Yet, he recognized how trivial his cold-like symptoms were compared to the man in Germany whose immune system was being suppressed in preparation for the transplant. To make his blood as healthy as possible, Garrison eliminated caffeine and alcohol. When

Coming from a family with strong ties to Jesuit meant Raul Ornelas knew Jesuit was the place for him long before he became a student. However, following in the footsteps of his brother Salvador ’92 and cousins, Jose Tello ’91 and Jose Luis Ornelas ’96, Ornelas struggled to find his own path. He recalls with gratitude the care with which Sheryl Row emphasized that he was an individual and shouldn’t try to be the same as anyone else. As he reflects on the process by which Jesuit teaches students to become Men for Others, he concludes that there are several elements working together—the guiding principles of the Profile of the Graduate, four years of community service culminating in senior weekly service, and the women and men on the faculty and staff. To him, the care and guidance that he received as a student helped him become a man who wanted to do the same for others. He recalls the example of former Jesuit President Phil Postell, SJ, with whom he first interacted during a Saturday Penance Hall (PH). Postell invited the shy student to help him water the plants in the courtyard. “I later realized that was a ploy to give me an opportunity to talk. After that day, Father Postell became very influential in my life. I noticed how he listened to people. I watched how he helped everyone and got his hands into the job. He modeled service and he made it fun.”

to welcome home troops stationed overseas, he remembers how important it is for students to know they can make a difference. When it comes to modeling what it is to be a Man for Others, Ornelas concludes that little things have a big impact, “When you stop to pick up trash, you’re saying the community matters to you; when faculty are at games or wherever students are, students realize our care for them doesn’t end at 4:00. The Jesuit community is open and loving and that makes it easy to model being a Man for Others.”

Tim Murphy ’06

Ornelas remembers a morning he arrived late to school and stressed about the day ahead. Seeing him in the hall, Coach Robert Williams immediately noticed the senior was not his usual cheerful self. After a quick conversation, Williams walked the student to then-Principal Mike Earsing’s office where the three talked through Ornelas’ concerns. That day, Ornelas knew he wanted to return to Jesuit to teach, which he has done since 2005. Now that he’s on the other side of the formation process, Ornelas shares the lessons he learned as a Jesuit student with a new generation. In the classroom, he is inspired by the passion and energy Tom Garrison brought to teaching his freshman English class.

When Tim Murphy was a student at Jesuit, he loved the school, and he “heard all the Profile of the Graduate traits, but it wasn’t until [he was] a sophomore in college that it really became meaningful. It was about that time when I realized that others are more important than me.” He believes Jesuit students are more ethically and morally mature than their peers from other schools because the Jesuit process of formation “leads to the awareness that my decisions impact other people.” He began talking with Jesuit Senior Class Counselor Jack Fitzsimmons, who had been his basketball coach, about ways to stay involved with Jesuit. Coincidentally, Fitzsimmons was working to create the Alumni Service Corps (ASC) at the same time, so Murphy was ready to apply to the second ASC class when he was a senior. This period of reflection led Murphy to change his major from economics to education, a change that brought him a lot of satisfaction.

Murphy entered the ASC program as his classmates from college were entering the workforce; the contrast made him realize his decision to choose service over pay was countercultural. He reflects that the ASC forces its participants to model being Men for Others, living a life of simplicity and community. After becoming a full-time member of the faculty, he has tried to maintain that focus. As both a freshman counselor and a teacher of seniors, Murphy sees students across the spectrum. He enjoys beginning the process of formation with freshmen, and he appreciates teaching economics to seniors, where he shares not only understanding of how monetary and economic systems and forces work, but the Jesuit call to live in service to others. “When I go on retreats or work with students planning Special Games or the Notre Dame Dance, I see students who are living proof that Jesuit forms Men for Others.“

The Journey Continues As Tim Nguyen, Class of 2012 Bishop Lynch Award winner, addresses his classmates at graduation, it is clear that the four-year formation of Men for Others has taken root. On this journey to become Men for Others, which is far from over, it is worthwhile for us to realize that we too have been this “other”. We aren’t and haven’t always been the “men,” if you will. But just who were the individuals who cared for us, so we could care for others? Who taught, so that we may one day teach? Who coached, so that we might coach? Who gave, so that we can give and not count the cost? In a very real way, it has been our families and teachers living out this Jesuit mission. So as the Class of 2012 graduates, it is my hope that we step out from under our parents’ and mentors’ wings to become the Men for Others for the next generation.

Jennifer and John Gates with son-in-law Will Whitsitt and daughters Jessica and Jordan

A Lasting Legacy From my first day at Jesuit, I learned “you’re part of the Jesuit community.” It’s powerful to realize that people—alumni, classmates and faculty—are there for you. Jesuit continues to show what community means for the rest of your life. Both Jennifer and I grew up in families where giving time and resources to the community was important. We’ve carried that into our own lives and tried to raise our daughters to do the same. We support a lot of worthwhile causes, but when we planned our estate, we had to think about the legacy we want to survive us. We decided not to spread our estate assets over all worthy causes but to concentrate them where they can have the greatest impact. We decided to include Jesuit in our estate plans because we’re committed to providing access to Jesuit and the formation of future Men for Others.

-John Gates ’83 In its twentieth year, the St. Ignatius Legacy Society was founded in 1992 to recognize individuals who make bequests or other planned gifts to benefit Jesuit Dallas students beyond their own lifetime. The generosity of these visionary friends expresses faith in the school’s educational mission, and their support creates a stable base on which to build. By naming Jesuit Dallas as a beneficiary of your will, trust, retirement plan, life insurance policy or financial account, you can make a Jesuit education possible for future generations while retaining control of your assets during your lifetime. We invite you to join those who have ensured their legacy through the St. Ignatius Legacy Society. To inform us of your plans so we can thank you for your commitment to Jesuit’s future or to learn more, please contact Chuck Vinson at 972-387-8700 x347.

Alumni in the News All eyes are on the tall, soft-spoken man as Jared Moossy ’98 talks with an English class of Jesuit seniors. His manner stands in stark contrast to his words as he describes the horrors of war, famine, and exploitation. A documentary photographer who has travelled with U.S. troops in Afghanistan and captured images of life in some of the world’s most difficult circumstances, Moossy explains, “I put myself in harm’s way for a better understanding of the fragility of life and for the realization that this way of life is normal in many parts of the world. I live the life and do the job I do to help [those living in safety and comfort] understand parts of the world they will never see.” Moossy, a graduate of Parsons School of Design, credits Jesuit, particularly Raymond Ochs, with nurturing his interest in the arts and helping him understand the potential to use art as his voice. He describes Jesuit’s dominant role in forming his values and goals and helping him “understand the collective value in humanity and what we can do to help one another.” His work has been published in Newsweek, Time, The Wall Street Journal, Conde Naste Traveler, and Harpers. With a recent photo essay published in Foreign Policy Magazine and Witness a HBO series soon to be released, Moossy relishes the constant adventure with “new people, new food and a renewed sense of life on a daily basis.” Visit to view more of his work.
