“I chose Emerson because I fell in love with the spirit of inclusiveness and creativity the school offers,” he said. “I knew it was right for me the second I stepped onto campus, especially since it’s located in Boston. Both of my parents were born and raised there, and all of our family is still located in Massachusetts.”
A native of Canyon Country, Jack attended Sulphur Springs Community School, Sierra Vista Junior High and Canyon High School. Local teachers who made a difference in his life include: Sue Hoefflin, Mary Frances Trevino, Janet Yessayan, Michelle Garvey, Ruth Bird, Cheryl Hanks, Ron Kasdorf and Vicki Goodwin.
“I am really grateful that I was raised in Canyon Country, and I absolutely love California … but I like living in a big city on the East Coast,” he said. “I love having both coasts at my availability, bouncing back and forth for breaks and school and family trips.”
