90 Leave 2020 Behind

This past summer, Stephanie and Bill Angrick celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary at their local Irish pub after COVID nixed their plans to return to Italy. Bill is excited to share that their eldest son, Will, committed to ND’s lacrosse program and will be on campus this fall as a member of the 2025 class. Matthew, a high school sophomore, is homeschooled and passionate about soccer, design and the outdoors. Bill remains CEO of Liquidity Services where their B2B e-commerce marketplace AllSurplus.com has helped many small businesses and government agencies stay competitive during the pandemic. After 20 years in the Washington DC area, they are relocating to Flagler Beach FL this year for the weather, fishing and surf. He would love to connect with ND classmates in the area. They also look forward to spending more time in South Bend in the coming years to make more memories with ND friends and family. Dan Yu continues to produce and host a vodcast, a virtual talk show: “Racial + Social Justice Beyond The Dome,” highlighting the personal stories and social justice work of people in the Notre Dame community. The inaugural 10-episode season featured Patrick Creadon ’89 (director of the documentaries Hesburgh and ESPN 30 for 30: Catholic vs Convicts) Reggie Brooks ’93, Coach Niele Ivey ’01, and former Leprechaun Mike Brown ’01. Season 2 is already underway. Dan has his own strategy consultancy and recruiting firm, and recently, launched a career management school. Dana and Michael Sheedy are still in Tallahassee FL, where Mike is the director of the Florida Catholic Conference. They have a son, Cullen, and are looking forward to the Irish football game at Florida State in September. Lenore (Reznick) and Pat Kujawa live in Scottsdale AZ with their children, Taylor, 22; Brennan, 19; and Karina, 16. Pat is a regional director with Halbert Hargrove, one of the nation’s oldest and largest independent registered investment advisors and serves clients in 16 states. In their free time, they enjoy reading compelling books, hiking on many of the great trails in Arizona, swimming, spending time with family and friends and playing with their daughter’s dog, Lola. Brennan and Taylor attend Arizona State U’s Barrett Honors College and Karina is a sophomore at Xavier College Prep, a girls’ high school in Phoenix. Having recovered from mild cases of COVID-19 over the summer, they have donated plasma and highly encourage all to do so. Please keep track of us on Facebook at Notre Dame Irish Class of 1990 and at 1990.undclass.org.

91 30th Reunion and More

I hope everyone is staying healthy and safe. We love to hear from you so please send news. Julia C. Bannan, the daughter of John J. Bannan and Maria Saveria Bilotti ’95JD, has been accepted into ND as a freshman this coming fall. Tom Tressler was able to get together with some classmates on campus in late August as they attended the beautiful wedding of Gracie Linus ’17 and Andrew McCarthy ’17. Gracie is the daughter of Joe Linus and Anne (Glennon) Linus ’92SMC. Also enjoying the minireunion were Char (Kaufmann) and Mike Obringer, Kristen (Kenessey) and Dave Brown, and Mike Kolnik. It was a great celebration and fun connection with old friends in a year that did not allow much opportunity for that. On a similar note, the University has announced the cancellation of its in-person Reunion celebration scheduled for June, and will host a virtual version instead. Visit reunion.nd.edu for more information. On Facebook? Join our Class of 1991 page. We have 643 members. — Suzi (Criqui) Mueller; cell 917-886-8176; suzi@cbglobalsearch.com

My wish for you is a joyful spring and the COVID-19 vaccine in your arm. — Patty (Spiekermann) Lynch; pattylynch05@gmail.com


91JD Adjusting

I received several holiday cards from members of the class who, like the rest of us, have had to adjust their lives. Bill Meyer wrote that his 2020 travels were severely limited due to COVID, but he made the best of it with a summer trip to Colorado. His eldest daughter, Abigail, is in the second year of her architecture program at ND. She had a long winter break at home with her family and hopes she will be in Rome in the fall. Bill’s son, Zach, will be graduating high school in the spring and is looking at colleges. Sophia, the youngest, is a sophomore in high school and is active in cross country, sings in several choirs and is an avid baker. Singmay and Bernie Lau are empty nesters. Their sons Will and Charles attend Boston U and Will is set to start medical school at Boston U in the fall. Singmay and Bernie will be moving to Brooklyn from Scarsdale in the next few months to be closer to her medical practice. Bernie practices corporate intellectual property law at AdvanSix, a chemical company. Aloysius Hogan and his son, Jack, enjoyed time together over the holidays in Montana, Wyoming and Utah. They skied, visited national parks and stopped at a few donut shops along the way. Mike O’Neill and Tim DeMasi sent cards showcasing their beautiful families and quarantine activities. Stay safe and healthy, dear friends. Until next time, act justly, love tenderly and walk humbly with your God.

92 Fresh Start                                              

A new year is a chance to make new resolutions, amend old ones or start with a clean slate. Congrats to Kateri Kerwin who adopted her daughter Shilyla on Dec. 16. She dove into motherhood with virtual Girl Scouts cookie sales. Don Leslie sends word he is now the chief information officer at OLV Human Services in Lackawanna, a suburb of Buffalo. OLVHS carries on the legacy of the Venerable Rev. Nelson Baker by providing educational, residential and community-based services for troubled youth, people with developmental disabilities and those struggling with emotional, social and mental health issues. Chris Temple (aka “Spidey” in Pangborn) is the assistant registrar at ND. He has worked on campus since ’03. He completed his PhD in history. in the fall. His wife, Miki Strabley ’92SMC, and daughter Molly are relieved. Chris (Choquette) Ford moved back to Rhode Island, her first time living there since high school. Molly (Lennon) Anderson is still in South Bend and semi-retired, so she and Sheila (Jones) Heslin have started planning a London reunion during our 30th reunion in 2022.

If you purge and find any Class of ’92 gems in your closet, please share on our class Facebook page. Pete Loftus has been keeping the WSJ readers up to date with articles about COVID-19, including some about the vaccine and an antibody drug. Pete apparently had a few chats with Dr. Fauci to confirm info for these articles. We appreciate the work to keep folks informed. Jon Paul Potts checked in from Fuquay-Varina, outside of Raleigh. He and his wife Renee survived lockdown with their four kids, (including two teens), an old hound dog, fish and a talkative parakeet named Ray. Jon Paul is now SVP, head of strategic solutions at InVision Communications, an audience engagement agency. Gina (Pribaz) Vozenilek co-edited The Healer’s Burden, an anthology of essays and poems by clinicians from across healthcare. It includes discussion questions and writing prompts that use techniques of narrative medicine to give healthcare workers tools to constructively engage with their own professional grief. You can find it on Amazon. Mark Mueller sent the scoop on his clan: Mark is still with the Air Force working in systems engineering to modernize the B-52. His wife, Carrie ’92SMC, works remotely for Saint Mary’s College and is the interim executive director of development. Son Matt works at his alma mater, Butler U, marketing arts and events.

93MBA Staying in Touch

I love hearing from you at Christmas and seeing your families in the cards and letters that I receive. One cute photo came from Sara Leibscher in front of an old ND painted truck with the Golden Dome in the background. Another arrived from Megan Hilal with four photos from four different years of her girls sitting in the same spot. This was so cute to see how they have grown. Todd Moore sent a card of his family of four. His two daughters are adorable and share Todd’s goofiness. Bob Silveri’s three daughters are growing so quickly. They all have big smiles. Corky Vickers’ letter is always exciting. His daughter is a junior in high school and his son is a senior in college. During the restrictions, the four of them shared 640 square feet of living space, working and schooling from home. I cannot imagine that. They did go on their annual Fair Haven NY trip for a couple of weeks, enjoying sailing, water skiing and visiting friends from a socially acceptable distance. Matthew Majikes also wrote about having four working and schooling from home. He said he was fortunate that they had enough room to have their own Zoom spaces. They enjoyed family and friend time in New Jersey during the shutdown, even being socially distanced. Matthew wrote that he is having a hard time knowing what to do with his free time since he is not traveling 70-90 percent of the time. I am excited to tell you that I will have another daughter at Notre Dame next year. She is my volleyball player at Butler U. She graduates in May with a biology/chemistry degree. She thought she was going to med school but changed her mind in September. She applied to ND’s Master of Science in Management program and is going to get a business degree as well. I am excited for her and for her younger sister, who will be a sophomore next year at ND. I hope college football will have a normal schedule next fall. If they do, I will be at every home game. I am thankful for the time with all three of my kids home. I have enjoyed seeing them interacting as 20-year-old friends which is so different than seeing them as younger siblings. I pray that you may continue to spend quality time with family and friends in this crazy time in our lives and that all of you are healthy and happy. — Tricia Hug Schorr; 317-987-5000; thugschorr@yahoo.com


93JD A Few Updates 

Guess who is now a judge in the great state of Florida? That’s right, Gilberto Perez. He joins David Haimes who has been judging for several years in Florida. Kathryn (aka Kate the Great) Smith killed it, earning nothing but As in every class as she earned a Master’s in Public Leadership at the U of San Francisco. Judy Fox is such a good attorney that she welcomed grandchild No. 7 right before Christmas. Judy’s grandbaby is named Juniper. Not to be outdone, Erin Bartholomy’s brother’s wife’s sister (the rule against perpetuities is easier to figure out than that relationship) also gave birth to a baby named Juniper a few weeks ago. Gretchen Swanz Herault did a fascinating inverse career move and left in-house lawyering to start her own practice in privacy and cybersecurity. Gretchen makes me feel like a piker as I am struggling with a pro bono name change right now. Dave Chorzempa implemented some good tax planning and got married on Dec. 18 in Florida. (Married filing joint is my free advice. But of course, advice is worth what you pay for it.) Adriana Sanford is living in Santa Monica and she serves as counsel to a leading Chilean law firm, Puga Ortiz. Adriana is also the acting director for executive education for the Gene Rainbolt Graduate School of Business. Michelle Stahl and John Ausdemore (both retired) report that their son Jake will graduate from USC this spring. Michelle also reports that in early 2020, pre-COVID, she and John traveled to Vegas and met up with Jeanine Sorrentino and her husband. Frank Kros also was involved in the Vegas fun, which of course I can’t repeat because you know what happens in Vegas. I feel satisfied because this is one of the longer Class Notes I have done. Reach out to me and let me know what is going on in your lives and I will spread the word. Peace and blessings to you. As my mom always says to me, you pray for me and I’ll pray for thee. — Jamie O’Brien; jamesobrienesq@yahoo.com

94JD Major Ruling

In August, Kurt Khelland received a major ruling from the 9th Circuit in an important antitrust case brought by the FTC against Qualcomm. He was the in-house lawyer who managed the case for six years and had coverage of the case in the Wall Street Journal, New York Times and the legal press. Mya Whitmore was featured in several news articles about College Football Parents 24/7, a group that she and her husband Chris Hinton launched to give parents a voice “to address issues that deal with the well-being of student athletes.” Craig Olivo has been selected for inclusion in 2021 Super Lawyers in Upstate New York in the areas of education law, employment law and management. There is no certain date on our annual unofficial reunion game, but hopefully things are more secure and safe soon. I hope you are well. Please send me an update. — Doug Duncan; pdouglasduncanjr@yahoo.com

95JD In Loving Memory: John Rehn

Julie Douglas, who teaches in the legal writing program at the Law School, asked me to pass on the sad news that John Rehn, our classmate, died suddenly in January. Here is a link to John’s obituary: https://https://obituaries.galesburg.com/obituaries/register-mail/obituary.aspx?n=john-rehn&pid=197467802&fhid=19032. Notes can be sent to the family at 1816 N. Broad St., Galesburg IL 61401-1446. One of John’s daughters attends NDLS. He and his wife, Jeralyn Rehn, have a son and another daughter as well. It is hard to distribute news like this, but I always appreciate hearing from you and the opportunity to share your submissions with our class. — Julia Meister; meister@taftlaw.com


96 Molly Davis Hahn Tribute 

I am sorry to report that our classmate Molly Davis Hahn passed away. Molly’s Lewis roommates Aimee Worsley, Sara Montrose, Ann (Potter) Francis, Nicole (Rauert) Mueller, Debbie Droll, Meagan Ciccarelli, Jennifer (Raney) Doumitt and Jennifer Earls penned this beautiful tribute to her. “Our ND roommate (Lewis Hall) and dear friend for 28 years, Molly (Davis) Hahn ’96, died on Nov. 5 after a 14-month battle with glioblastoma. She leaves behind her husband, Noah ’94, her kids Doyle, 13; Leo, 10; and Lizzie, 8; her dad, brothers and extended family; and her enormous circle of friends, including too many of our classmates to name, who loved her and will miss her every day. Molly connects us now as she did during her illness and for as long as we have known her. The introverts among us have always been awed by the size of Molly’s social circle, and the depth of those relationships has only been made clear with her loss. Battling cancer in the era of COVID and Zoom, Molly inspired her roommates to congregate weekly from locations around the world, and even inspired a Zoom Londomers (fall 1994 semester) reunion earlier this year. The prolific sharing of photos snapped through the plastic pages of photo albums followed. Always positive, energetic and full of ‘can-do’ (seriously, she did not see obstacles), Molly was the most amazing wife and mom, sister, cousin, aunt, godmother and friend, with an enormous capacity for connection and for empathy. While her circle was vast, she made each of us feel like we were the most important person in her life when she interacted with us. Because of some of her treatments, Molly had periods where she had a hard time sleeping. Because I, Aimee Worsley, am in the U.K., I was lucky to be the person who was awake and available to chat at 3 a.m. her time. In May, she wrote me this: ‘These last few months, my vision of praying has changed quite a bit. For me it means that my time to talk with you and all my people has been what God wanted me to do that I wasn’t doing enough before.’ I relished every one of those conversations we had during her wee hours. It’s hard to believe that Molly is gone. We are all better people for having known her.” Molly’s family has asked that any memorial contributions be made to Notre Dame to support brain cancer research. Gifts may be made online at giving.nd.edu, by phone at 574- 631-5150, or by mail at University of Notre Dame, Department of Development, 1100 Grace Hall, Notre Dame IN 46556. “Please make checks payable to the University of Notre Dame. In all cases, please indicate that you would like to direct your gift to the Molly Hahn and Rebecca Pflueger Memorial Fund. This is a fund that we established at Notre Dame in partnership with the Pflueger family to financially support undergraduate Notre Dame students to perform a summer research internship between their junior and senior years at a leading US brain cancer research institution. Like Molly, Rebecca Pflueger passed away from glioblastoma. Rebecca was the mother of Rex Pflueger ’19, ’20MBA, a former member and captain of the Notre Dame men’s basketball team. Rex has been a tremendous source of support for our family over the last year and establishing this fund at Notre Dame is building some healing bridges for both of our families. Our goal is to get students an early exposure to cutting edge brain cancer research and maybe inspire some of them to pursue a career in improving outcomes for future brain cancer patients like Molly and Rebecca.” I hope you are doing well despite these challenging times. — Kate Crisham; catherine.crisham@usdoj.gov

97 Just Keep Swimming

Thank goodness 2020 is over and we are moving forward to bigger and better things. I kept Dory’s mantra from Finding Nemo in my head through all the craziness of 2020: “Just keep swimming.” Speaking of moving, this past October Marisa Tamayo completed her first marathon, the Virtual TCS New York City Marathon. She finished in 3:52:12 with an average pace of 8:51 mile. Marisa ended in the top eight percent of women and 19 percent overall. She is grateful to her family and friends for their support in helping her achieve this goal. We are not much for updates this spring; hopefully, as we start getting out and meeting up with people, I will get exciting news from classmates to report. Enjoy your spring. Please stay safe and healthy. Please send me all updates. — Kate (Fisher) Murray; 1840 Huntingdon Road, Huntingdon Valley PA 19006; kmurraynd@yahoo.com


97MBA Reconnecting 

I hope this column finds you well during these challenging times. Here’s wishing you and your families health and happiness this year. This past Christmas season proved to be interesting. I uncovered a box from my time as an MBA student at Notre Dame that had somehow escaped the ravages of Superstorm Sandy in October 2012. This box proved to be a time capsule from the 1990s, complete with exam papers, textbooks, drink tickets from The Backer, memorabilia from our end-of-semester MBA talent show and, most importantly, photos. Photos of myself with classmates and professors, on campus, at holiday get-togethers, football games, as well as across Europe during my time as a London program MBA. I was surprised to see how many photos I had accumulated over the two-year program. Apparently back in the mid ’90s, I was an avid photographer, and at parties and tailgating events I became even more avid. For the past eight years, I thought these treasured pictures had been lost forever. They instantly brought back many great memories. I took this as a good omen, and an opportunity to try and reconnect with classmates and friends who appeared in some of these photos: Heather Drinan, Jenn and Stu Fortener, JJ Evans, Anthony Jowid, MaryBeth Pinard, Joe Fanning, Elena and Mike Dion, Tim Coff, Tom Traynor and one of my first-year MBA roommates, Weigang Bo. It was great to reconnect with an email, text, Christmas card or through LinkedIn with a short note or message to let them know I was thinking of them. I hope this year will give me a chance to reconnect with many more of you, even if just through this Class Notes column. Find me on LinkedIn as Paul Anthony, call, text or email me. I’m looking forward to connecting with you soon. — Paul Anthony Mongelluzzo; 646-584-7340; paulanthonymba@gmail.com
