1960s

Tony Shelton '67

“I retired in 2020 after 41 years at Cornell University where I was an International Professor of Entomology. My wife and I now split our time between the Finger Lakes Region of New York, where I can sail and bike for 8 months, and Santa Barbara, where I don’t have to shovel snow!”

1970s

John Debney '74

The Emmy-winning film and television composer’s work on the 2020 musical fantasy film Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey was recognized by the Oscars. Jingle Jangle made the shortlist in multiple categories, including Music (Original Score).

1990s

Craig Bowers '92

Craig Bowers ’92 (right) and his “South Los Angeles Beverage Company” were featured by SpectrumNews and the LA Times. To give back to his home city, proceeds from his first beer release in late 2020 went back to South Central as Chromebooks were purchased for underserved students in the area.

Dan Hoedeman '99

Hoedeman, who received an honorary diploma from then-Loyola President Fr. Robert Walsh, SJ, continues to impact his local community through the game of soccer. The former Cub soccer player and diver co-founded a club of his own, Minneapolis City SC and was profiled in this story here.

Fr. Sean Carroll, SJ

Fr. Sean O. Carroll, SJ, who was a former scholastic, coach and social studies teacher at Loyola in the early 1990s, has been selected to serve as the next provincial of the Jesuits West Province. “Fr. Carroll, SJ has a good heart and soul. He taught here at Loyola as part of his Jesuit training, so we have someone who knows us well, just like former Provincial Fr. Scott Santarosa, SJ did.” – Fr. Greg Goethals, SJ ‘73

Joaquin Torres '93

Torres was appointed the next Assessor-Recorder of the City and County of San Francisco earlier this month. Since 2018, he served as Director of the Office of Economic and Workforce Development where he significantly increased support for small businesses and firmly centered racial equity in the department’s mission and operations.

Keith Ramsey '98

Ramsey has found a new, creative way to share about his experience as a former Minor League ballplayer. The baseball coach in Manhattan Beach started a podcast titled “Heading for Home” where he interviews friends and former teammates, focusing on life and the journey of reaching the Major Leagues.

2000s

Tim Collins '01

The Senior Associate Athletic Director (AD) at Fresno State University was recently honored as one of the nation’s best Assistant Athletic Directors. Prior to Fresno State, he was the Associate AD for Development at Wyoming.

2010s

Clayton Evans '11

Now a physics and engineering teacher in Oakland, Clayton Evans ’11 was featured in the Smithsonian Magazine piece titled “The State of American Craft Has Never Been Stronger.”

Jerry Neuheisel '11

The former Loyola Football player was promoted to assistant coach at UCLA, where he will be the Bruins’ new wide receivers coach. Neuheisel played in Westwood from 2012 to 2015 and earned three varsity letters while playing at Loyola.

Max Hazzard '15

Hazzard, an all-state honoree who played basketball at Loyola from 2011 to 2015, joined Klutch Sports Group Agency to work as an executive assistant to NBA agent and fellow Cub, Omar Wilkes ’03. Hazzard graduated from the University of California, Irvine with a degree in sociology and earned a master’s in entrepreneurship at the University of Arizona last year.

2020s

Kevin Parada '20

Already one of the nation’s top freshman baseball players, Parada has made a big splash in his collegiate debut for the No. 15-ranked Georgia Tech Baseball program. On Feb. 24th, Parada went 4-for-4 and hit the first home run of his career in a win over Mercer. He was also ranked No. 2 in Baseball America’s “Top 25 New Additions to College Baseball” list.
