PRAYERSREQUESTED: Colon, Philip J. (MC1962) updates on Jim


Good Morning All,

Jim Smith’s operation was done last Friday. It was not a simple procedure and a follow up Pacemaker implant may be necessary but all went well. Jim has been up for several hours at a time each day. Kathleen and their daughters have been with Jim and he is doing well particularly considering the procedure. A couple of Jaspers have visited but not stayed long and that is a good thing as Jim heals. Rehab is being set up and will hopefully be near home. Today the decision will be made as to the Pacemaker.Thanks to one of our Alumni Board members and a dear friend, a visit to Jim by her Sister, a truly gracious and capable professional, a Nurse of some repute, she was able to visit with Jim on behalf of all of us. Thank you so much Susan. Please keep the volume up for Jim. You cannot keep a good man down and in my heart Jim is one of the best, itching to get going again. We pray for his continued and complete recovery. We his friends are grateful to you for your prayers. His family thanks each of you for your prayers and good thoughts. Thank you. God Bless. I will keep you posted.

A Bronx-bred native, Sandler grew up in Riverdale. He graduated from Manhattan College with a degree in political science after flirting with the idea of working as a comedian or working in film.

Kendall O’Connor
Worked at RSC Business Group Alpha
Attended Manhattan College
Lives in Bronx, NY


My name is Kendall O’Connor and I am originally from the Greater Boston Area and currently live in the Bronx. My idea career would be to do market research for an animation company like pixar or DreamWorks. I love market research because I think people are fascinating and I want to human behavior. Market research is an interesting and practical outlet for my interest in psychology. I joined this internship to learn more about market research. Currently, I am a student at Manhattan College and I have a major in marketing and a minor in psychology.

My most important accomplishment was Junior year in high school I won an award at my dance studio. I danced My entire life and loved it, there was an award that went out to the person who had the best attitude and worked the hardest. I was so honored when I won it because I worked so hard at dance my entire life, I was so happy that my hard work was recognized.

My two favorite stations on pandora are “60, 70s, and 80s hits” and “classic indie”. I listen to a lot of classic rock like the Beatles, Billie Joel, Queen, Fleetwood Mac, CCR, etc. I also listen to a lot of indie music like Iron and Wine, City and Colours, The Fratellis, The Kooks, etc. Also, I am constantly listening to musicals. You will always catch me signing Les Miserables, Evita, Next to Normal, etc.

My three favorite movies are Breakfast at Tiffany’s, The King’s Speech, Sound of Music, and Good Will Hunting. I can watch those movies over and over again and never get bored.

This year, I hope I get back into reading. I will read a couple books over the summer and I used to read all the time when I was little, but I stopped making time for reading and I am going to make time to read a couple good books.
