90 Virtual Reunions Aplenty

We were disappointed that the reunion had to be postponed, but it has been a lot of fun connecting virtually with many of my fellow Alumni Dawgs for Zoom cocktail hours. The typical shots were fired (primarily at Eggroll), laughs were in abundance and it was great connecting despite the unpleasant circumstances we find ourselves in. The men of Morrissey met up for a virtual euchre game and other Zoom minireunions were held by friends from Grace Hall, Zahm and Pasquerilla West, among others. Vince Martinez will be celebrating 25 years with Bank of America as a director of global commercial banking. Vince lives in Albuquerque with his wife, Susan, and daughter, Claire, 13. They escape from the heat to the Rocky Mountains in their Airstream with their labradoodle, Zoe. Some kids grow up with dreams of becoming an astronaut; Patrick Mullane grew up as the child of one. In his hilarious coming-of-age memoir, Mullane shares tales of his father’s unusual astronaut profession, a secret long-held by his mother, and his often-hilarious efforts to be a person of consequence. Be sure to check out his new book, The Father, Son, and Holy Shuttle: Growing Up an Astronaut’s Kid in the Glorious 80s. Katie (LeJeune) and James Otteson reported that this fall James will be returning to Notre Dame as the John T. Ryan Jr. Professor of Business Ethics in the Mendoza College of Business. For the last seven years, James has been teaching at Wake Forest. They loved their time in North Carolina, but the chance to return to Our Lady’s University was too great an opportunity to decline. They relocated to South Bend this summer. They have four children, including a freshman in high school, two currently in college in North Carolina, and their eldest who graduated from St. Mary’s College in 2016 and works in the Washington DC area. They would love to see classmates as they come through town. Please keep track of us on Facebook at Notre Dame Irish Class of 1990 and at 1990.undclass.org. Go Irish. — Marty Falkenberg; 23 Casselton Road, Raymond ME 04071; 847-323-4717; martin.falkenberg@yahoo.com

91 Quarantine Life, Before and After

I hope everyone is doing well and staying healthy and safe during these times. I am certain we have a lot of healthcare workers, frontline workers and countless others who are working hard these days. We thank you and would love to hear from you as we all adjust to the new normal. Some of my news comes from before the world went into lockdown in March. John Villa writes, “I graduated with you in 1991 but I have no idea who you are and that’s OK. I lived in Dillon and was a biology premed major. I did med school in Syracuse and then did family practice and ER residencies. I am currently the medical director for the Palm Beach County firefighter’s health and wellness center in West Palm Beach. I still do shifts in the ER but most of my time is spent managing the health and wellness center where we care for the county firefighters, their families, and retirees. ... My son Brian lives in Dillon and my daughter Theresa is a freshman in PE. I am terrible at keeping in touch with folks, but I recently reconnected with Tom Tressler, who will have two at ND this fall as well. I stay in contact with Rob Gerberry, Mark Scarmack and Bob Pietrusiak.” Michael Bender writes that daughter Caroline will start as a freshman in the fall as part of the Class of 2024. He also reports, “After we get her to ND and her older brother, Jack, heads back to Virginia Tech for his junior year, my wife Liz and I will be relocating from northern Virginia, where we have lived since 2004, to Huntsville AL. I am vice president of strategy and business development for the defense business unit of Aerojet Rocketdyne. The company moved its defense HQ to Huntsville a couple of years ago and I am finally catching up to it with our two kids out of the nest. You can be sure though that I will not be saying ‘Roll Tide’ once we get there. It will always be ‘Go Irish.’” I also received an essay from Stephanie Snyder about her experience during quarantine in NYC. I have included excerpts here. “It’s like Groundhog Day. Without the alarm. ... If you’re like me, sleep is short and interrupted. I’ve learned to mitigate that sleeplessness with no news after 10 p.m. (hard), no internet after midnight (nearly impossible) and to dive into a mind-numbingly, trashy beach book before bed each night to shut off reality. It is also clear there are the chores I’d been putting off due to lack of time. ... Call me Laura Ingalls. Yes, living in the city has its advantages. But the one disadvantage has always been laundry. Back to Laura. I stocked up on Woolite, took my Halloween decor ... out of its bin, stuck the bin in the tub and I hand wash just like Laura. I could really use a washboard. I get it now. I’ve learned that going out for drinks and touching my face are two of my favorite things. I tip what never seems like enough at the grocery. ... In March they shut down restaurants and bars. I was at one; the police came in and kicked us out. Then business stopped, shelter-in-place became the new normal. ... Every night at 7 my neighbors and I lean out our windows and cheer and bang pots in thanks to our frontline workers. We whoop and holler. The other day, though, a guy brought out his horn and played Taps. Keep fighting, Irish. Stay safe. See you on the other side. Love from New York.” On Facebook? Join our Class of 1991 page.

91MBA Good News

Rosemary Conlan Braniff reports that her daughter Julia was accepted into the Notre Dame Mendoza College of Business. Julia transferred in from the Notre Dame Gateway Program, is a sophomore and is thrilled to be part of the Notre Dame community. Rosemary and her husband went to a few football games last fall and caught up with Missy Sommer at a tailgate. They also tailgated with Missy in Boston before the Notre Dame game with Boston College. Rosemary’s son, Jack, graduated from BC in May. Rosemary was decked out in both the Fighting Irish and Eagles team colors and cheered for every touchdown on both sides. The fans around her couldn’t figure out what was going on. Rosemary says, “There’s nothing in the world like a Notre Dame football game.” Stella Marie and Greg Jeffery celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary on July 15. There was no cruise or big party, just a trip for two to a local lake for the day. That sounds perfect. We send good vibes to the MBA class of 1991. Please continue to share your news with me. — Patty (Spiekermann) Lynch; pattylynch05@gmail.com

92 Pivotal Year                                                       

COVID-19 changed everyone’s 2020 plans from graduations and 50th parties to schooling and beyond. Thankfully, many still made the best of these times. Here is the latest from our class, starting with offspring. Domers in the Class of 2024: Nicole (Verich) and Doug Browne said daughter Mary has a full Navy ROTC scholarship.

Kirsten (Brown) and Jim Greco ’90 celebrated their 25th anniversary in June at Estes Park instead of Croatia. Colleen (Greenthal) and Rob Mas celebrated the wedding of their eldest during the summer with only 12 in attendance. They hope to have a larger reception to celebrate the first anniversary. Melissa (Weber) Rightley missed attending the Mas wedding in person but looks forward to being on campus more often as their eldest, Grace, is a freshman at Saint Mary’s. Angie (Buckingham) Melton sends word that her Lewis Chicks celebrated their 50th birthdays just before the shutdown: Tammy (Meyers) Walters, Kirstin (Braun) Kellner, Cara (Eckman) McCandless, Jackie (Halder) Fallenstein, Kristin (Sadie) Schwarz, Michelle (Janosov) Pearson and Angie spent a long weekend at Rosemary Beach FL.

He also published a book: The Athlete’s Secret to Conquering Pain: Heal Your Body and Boost Performance Through Regenerative Medicine. Condolences for the family of Joe Sophy who lost his three-year battle with cancer in December. He lived in Phoenix where he was involved in the family business while pursuing his passion: writing fiction. Please update your contact info on the alumni.nd.edu website and share any “Road to 50” or creative COVID-19 activities and adventures. — Jill-Beth (JB) Hayes; ndclassof92@gmail.com


92MBA Is it 2021 Yet?

I hope you are healthy, happy, and looking forward to a speedy return to normalcy. Finding the silver lining during lockdown has been challenging for many, but one bright spot has been Zoom calls with friends and relatives. Speaking of Zoom, Dan Yu hosted a series of online meetings for the Notre Dame Club of Pittsburgh titled “Racial + Social Justice Beyond the Dome.” In July, Dan moderated an interactive Zoom discussion with All-American and NFL player Reggie Brooks ’93, who talked about his life experiences as a student-athlete, growing up in Tulsa, and his views on how we can become more aware of social justice, be active in our communities and move forward together. Dan has his own recruiting firm, helping companies of all sizes with their talent needs. He recently got engaged to Corie Dougherty ’94. As always, please send me updates and join our class Facebook page. — Julie Pendell; pendell.julie@gmail.com

93 Knott 4A Zoom

One of the benefits of COVID-19 sheltering-in-place were Zoom calls with the girls from Knott 4A ’92-’93. The calls were reminiscent of many late-night conversations, sitting on the hallway floor outside the study room, discussing boys and the meaning of life in equal parts. Minnesota was well-represented on the calls with Maureen (Connelly) Kirk, Kim (Beyer) Owen and Linda (Widman) Zacher ’95. Maureen has worked for 3M since 1999; in March she started a new position, change management leader. Kim is a published author of several fiction novels. Dana Dillon joined from Rhode Island, Kim Tracey Prince joined from southern California, and Rebecca (Krieg) Sherwood joined from Fort Worth TX. Sue Kehias used her shelter-in-place downtime to share updates on herself and some classmates. Sue is married with two kiddos and lives in Oak Park IL. She works in a group practice as a mental health counselor and in her spare time enjoys visiting family near and far, wasting time on social media and rooting for ND. Kevin Malloy is known to break marathon training on certain fall Saturdays with his wife Beth (Hinchey) and their three kids. Kevin practices law in Chicago. Beth is a scientist at the EPA’s Great Lakes National Program Office in Chicago. She gets to cruise the Great Lakes on the EPA’s research ship. In Rochester NY, Ali (Burns) Hoy is deputy general counsel at Carestream Health, which is an essential business as a global manufacturer of medical equipment and therefore remained busy during the pandemic. Ali’s husband, Will, also an attorney, is a partner and head of the private equity and venture capital practice group at Harter Secrest & Emery. Their eldest, Carly, is a freshman at ND this fall studying biochemistry as part of the Glynn Family Honors Program. She is a member of the ND Irish dance team and the running club. Still at home are their two boys, Liam and Aiden. Kara (Lynch) and Doug Ciocca’s son, Nate, started in the ND Gateway program this fall. Gateway is a program between ND and Holy Cross College that invites select students to enroll at Holy Cross for their first year with a guaranteed transfer to ND for the start of the sophomore year. Kara and Doug’s eldest, Morgan, completed her junior year at Loyola Chicago while their youngest is a high school sophomore. The Cioccas live in Kansas City where Doug has his own investment company, Kavar Capital. Kara works in community outreach for the Know the Glow campaign. Darin Prado took a new role within PepsiCo as the senior director of North American IT value chain transformation. His role seeks to optimize the IT applications and solutions supporting PepsiCo’s North American business units. After 15 years at the company, the last four of which focused on global IT testing and release management, he is excited for the change. Darin lives in Geneva IL with his wife Jodie and daughter Gianna. After bouncing through the world of corporate accounting and consulting, Kevin Keefe earned his MBA at U of Chicago then switched to investment management. Married with three awesome kids and living in Chicago, Kevin has worked in private equity for PPM America for 13 years. Kevin and his wife, Andrea, packed up the kids and headed to Marco Island FL for two months to ride out the pandemic, finding a bright spot to make the impossible a little more bearable. Temporarily relocating south has been a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the Keefes. Chicago got to be unbearable in the thick of it, and they have not regretted their decision one bit. — Anne Marie (Krauza) Yuhas; mobile 623-606-7000; yuhas93@gmail.com 


93MBA Jeff and John Send Updates

I love seeing email updates on your families and life. Please send me info on what you are doing. Many of us enjoy reading where life has taken us 27 years after graduation from ND. I received two updates; one was from Jeff Holben and the other from John Liptak. Jeff Holben says, “Things are fine here in Denver. My eldest son graduated from Marquette in May and is moving to Kansas City to teach at a Jesuit high school as part of a service group called the Alumni Service Corp. This group offers kids who are newly graduated from college and who attended Jesuit high schools the chance to teach for a year at a Jesuit high school. My youngest son will be a sophomore at Gonzaga. He loves it and was extremely disappointed to have to come home mid-semester. He is majoring in biology and computer sciences and can’t wait to get back. As for my wife and me, we are trying to get used to the idea of being empty nesters. And while the pandemic has been/is bad, a silver lining has been unexpected time with our boys. We aren’t taking that for granted; it goes much too fast.” John Liptak says, “I don’t know when my last update was, but here is the current info. After 20 years in Asia, I moved back with my family to the US (South Carolina) a few years ago. Our son, Jake, is starting college as a cadet at West Point and Megan is a junior in high school here Greenville SC. It’s great to be back in the US after so many years away. We got up to ND in spring and it was a real treat taking my wife and kids around the campus even though everything was shut down and we were social distancing. The bookstore was open, and everyone got plenty of ND apparel.” I pray that each of you are healthy and are finding positive moments in these times that we are experiencing. I also pray that your families can spend some quality time together given the slowdown that many of us have experienced. My next deadline is Oct. 20. Please shoot me a short email telling me what you are doing, and I will include it in the next update. Go Irish. — Tricia Hug Schorr; 317-987-5000; thugschorr@yahoo.com


93JD Time of His Life

We have some updates, but never enough, so keep them coming. Don’t make me hunt you down for factoids. James Fleming is having fun raising four daughters with his bride Terri. Jim is the State Child Support Director for North Dakota. He also serves as the president of the National Council of Child Support Directors. Charlie Rose just finished his first year as dean and professor of law at Ohio Northern U and reports that he is having the time of his life. His daughter is following in his footsteps and is a law professor at the U of South Dakota. Together they are co-authors of the second edition of Mastering Trial Advocacy by West Academic Publishing. Brian Alexander just finished his 25th year at Kreindler & Kreindler, an aviation law firm. Brian is proud that he has a Domer son and a Saint Mary’s College daughter. He also sends his blessings. Wendel Davis is kicking butt at the SBA as he helps many small and medium businesses in New England during these difficult economic times. Kari Gallagher continues to work as a career law clerk for Judge Ripple and she also teaches legal writing at ND Law School. She is co-author of an article in the Notre Dame Law Review. I wish I had more to report. Peace and blessings to you all. As my mom always says to me, “You pray for me and I’ll pray for thee.” — Jamie O’Brien; jamesobrienesq@yahoo.com


94 Still Too Big for Words? 

I have nothing original this time, but I have news about the Class of 1994. Congratulations to Allison (Dilling) Bliesner and her husband Tristan on the May birth of their son, Drew. Impending nuptials: congratulations to Michael Somerville on his quarantine engagement. New books: Kudos to Tom Lillig on the publication, with co-author David Shurna, of the book What’s Within You: Your Roadmap to Living Life with No Barriers, an Amazon No. 1 new release. Tom and Dave are co-founders of No Barriers USA. Molly Spencer is teaching at the Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy at the U of Michigan. She’s also a poet and editor, and her debut poetry collection, If The House, was published last year as the winner of the Brittingham Prize from U of Wisconsin Press, and a second collection won the Crab Orchard Series in Poetry Open Competition at Southern Illinois U Press and will come out in October. Cullen Hegarty MD was featured in the Alumni Association’s “We Are ND: Be the Light Volume 3” for his work at the ER at Regions Hospital in St. Paul MN. He is an emergency physician, the program director for the Emergency Medicine Residency program, and is involved with COVID-19 planning for the emergency department and the residency program. H. Stephen Do retired from International Paper after a 25-year run and is now a burgeoning carpenter and manufacturer of custom-made lamps and doors. Stephen’s former roommates, Tibor Hegedus, Dr. Nathan Uy and Jason Wilson wish him well in his new endeavors. Matthew C. Miller paid a visit to his old London roommate, Rev. Mike Mathews, CSC, in Uganda for several days in early March, and helped Father Mike teach public speaking and study skills to a few of his classes at the Queen of Apostles Philosophy Centre Jinja, an inter-congregational school to educate those in formation. Matt and Father Mike visited the basilica at the Munyonyo Martyrs’ Shrine, the CSC’s headquarters in Kampala, and a lakeside resort at Entebbe. That sounds like an amazing trip. We have sad news to share about a member of the Class of 1995 who started with the Class of 1994. Ed Walters passed away on Sept. 28, 2019, and was survived by his wife, Tara (Lynch) Walters ’95, and their sons Liam, Owen and Conor. Those who knew Ed at ND know that his antics were epic. Thanks to his sister Lara (Walters) Hoffmans ’93 for the update. And finally (at least to fellow golfers), a tip of the cap to Tad Eckert who achieved his lifelong goal of becoming a scratch golfer. Next stop: Champions Tour. Way to go Tad. Send me a note with news, let me know what’s happening or just say hi to your humble scrivener. — Joe Poe; ndclass1994@yahoo.com

96 In Memoriam 

I hope you and your loved ones are doing well despite these challenging times. I am sorry to report sad news regarding our classmate Keith Koeferl, who passed away at his home in Boston on July 4 after battling a long illness. Mike Roskell wrote the following tribute: “Keith graduated with us in 1996 and was a proud Zahm Hall resident. Keith was a talented artist and you may remember some of his Scholastic magazine comic contributions over the years. After graduation, Keith moved to New York City to pursue a successful career in investment banking and finance. Keith was a wonderful and doting father, a lifelong Notre Dame fan and an amazingly generous friend. His unique humor and intellect were a force to be reckoned with and the world is less bright because of his loss. Keith leaves behind his beloved children, Grace and Miles, their mother Gina, his mother, stepfather, father, and brother along with a niece and nephew. Keith’s memorial services in his hometown of Wilmington DE were attended by Matthew Plemich and Michael Roskell, his roommates from Zahm Hall. With COVID-19 restrictions, it was difficult for many of Keith’s Notre Dame and NYC family to attend the funeral services, but their spirit was felt as we laid Keith to rest at his cherished alma mater. Please keep Keith and his family and friends in your prayers.” — Kate Crisham; catherine.crisham@usdoj.gov

96JD COVID Helpers and Judicial Elections

Hello to all during these continued strange times. We are likely looking at ND football with little to no fans in the stands. Crazy. In fact, David Nozick is wondering why 2020 is acting like someone stole its wallet. For some real news: Marsha Griggs and her daughter have been quietly isolating in Lawrence KS where there is, thankfully, an abundance of nearby farms for food delivery. As they wait to see what fall will look like for the return to class, Marsha has kept busy writing. She published Diploma Privilege and the Constitution in SMU Law Review Forum and several advocacy pieces on finding alternative paths to licensure for 2020 law grads considering COVID-19 limitations that might prevent in-person bar exams. Brad Wiskirchen, founding CEO of Kount, co-founded Crush the Curve Idaho with five other Idaho CEOs. Crush the Curve secured 100,000 antibody tests for Idahoans and partnered with the U of Washington to provide Idahoans with PCR (genetic) tests. To date, Crush the Curve has set up testing centers throughout Idaho, conducted testing for Idaho’s largest employers to enable them to return to work safely. They have done approximately 10 times the number of tests conducted by all Idaho hospitals combined, and they have delivered test results within 24-48 hours. They have also been asked by the governor of Idaho to conduct all testing in “hot spots” on the state’s behalf. In addition, they are implementing tracing throughout Idaho and distributing AI-driven thermometers to rural communities to monitor health conditions daily. Melanie Rubocki and Perkins Coie ’97JD provided the legal work necessary to organize the nonprofit and have materially contributed to the success of the endeavor. Yours truly, Chris Spataro, won the Elkhart County IN Republican nomination for judge of the Elkhart Superior Court No. 5. Since the Democratic Party did not run a candidate in the primary and did not slate a candidate by the June 30 deadline, I will run unopposed in the November general election and will likely take the bench on Jan. 1, 2021. If you have news to share, please contact me. — Chris Spataro; 57027 Wedgefield Court, Elkhart IN 46516; 574-596-2417; chrisjspataro@gmail.com

I did get an exciting update that Bill Gibbs, a partner at Corboy & Demetrio, was named to the 2020 Lawdragon 500 Leading Plaintiff Consumer Lawyers. The list features the top 500 consumer lawyers nationwide. I am glad that we can celebrate something in these trying times.

On April 2, Jennifer (McNamara) Steller and her husband Conrad welcomed their sixth child, Jonah Patrick. Jen continues to homeschool and directs marketing for The Steller Group, an independent residential real estate brokerage that she and her husband launched in 2018 after 14 years at other companies.
