JOBIT: Donegan, Edward G. [MC1954 RIP] reported by McEneney, Mike (MC1953)


Dear John,

I received a call this afternoon that my St Barnabas Elementary School Classmate Ed Donegan,’54 passed away earlier today. Ed and I have been close though the years – in fact he married the ‘girl upstairs’ in our house, Ann Marie Schmidt (another Classmate), who is a Member of the Class of 1953 at Good Council College. They had Seven Children.

When I receive the arrangements, I will forward them on.

May He Rest In Peace.

McEneney, Mike (MC1953)

JEMAIL: McEneney, Mike (MC1953) cites past glory


Dear John,

The Sunday NY Daily News (3/29/15) has a piece, on page 75, headed:
Here’s a countdown of the most shocking tourney victories of all time:


How can you forget Jack Powers (’58) and the Jaspers upsetting
Jerry West and No.1-ranked West Virgina to open the 1958 tournament at
Madison Square Garden. Powers, the longtime director of the NIT, scored
20 points as the Jaspers held West to 10 points.

9. (Rest Deleted)

These were the glory days!

[JR: I think the recent upset of Maryland in the NIT was my personal favorite. I have a friend who is a Terp and I rubbed it in well. Laugh! Fear the underside playing for pride.]

JEMAIL: McEneney, Mike (MC1953) cites Catholic New York and Gatens, Brian [MC1982]


Dear John,

The March 19. 2015 Edition of Catholic New York, at page 26, has an article.
about the JASPERS making the NCAA National Championship for the Second time in
a row.

The article ends with the following:
“The Jaspers are making their eighth overall appearance in the tournament and will
be rooted on by Jaspers fans from past and present.

Brian Gatens, class of 1992, told CNY that the energy and enthusiasm is special at
Manhattan and the party atmosphere of Selection Sunday brings him back to when
he was a student.

‘My best memories are Manhattan College,’ he said. ‘I loved going here. I loved being
part of the tradition of Manhattan College. It is great to be with everybody and be on
campus and see what is happening here. I’m looking forward to the first game and to
the second game we are going to play in the tournament.”

JEMAIL: O’Connor, Bob (MC1953) updates on the Reilly Jasper clan


John –

Thanks for your continued effort on Jasper Jottings. I admire your work.

Much appreciated!

Last issue saddened me seeing the obit for George Reilly (’55).

As Mike McE told you he was brother to our classmate –Willy ’53.

BUT. His was from a real Jasper family. 

To wit:

Brothers – John (1951?)

William –(Willy ’53) –co-founder of Follow the five

George (55)

Sister – Ellen – worked switchboard weekends and summer –

Married a Jasper –Tom Raftery (53)

Mother – Catherine – was Chief Housekeeper for the Brothers’

Residence and Students Dorms for many years.

Willy (and Johnna) had kids that went to Manhattan, but I don’t know

How many, who nor when.

Now That’s a Jasper CLAN !!!

Just interesting to note. Perhaps there are others.

Bob O’Connor (’53)

[JR: First, thank you for your kind words. I’m always in awe of our fellow Jaspers and Attendees. Even though, last week’s John Butz obit made me VERY sad. As I “invest” more and more of my time in Jasper Jottings, I wonder if it dies when I do. You have to be a glutton for punishment to do this. I have made arrangements for my Executrix and my Data Custodian to preserve what I have done. (And, monetize any of my writings for the benefit of a bunch of children; having none of my own.) Sometimes, I labor on it and wonder if anyone reads it. At least, Jasper Stebbins Stebbins, Donald M. (MC1961) could be counted on for vocal feedback. It’s also very “sporadic”. Days with nothing and days with 10 or more stories. So, thanks for the feedback, it’ll keep me going for another month.]

[JR: Second, it’s a great email for causing Mike to go nuts checking all the names and years. Have to have to have some challenges to keep the old fellow’s mind active. After all Schlickenrieder, Warren (MC1942) keeps nipping at his heels. Laugh! BUT, (and there is always a BIG butt), NO ONE wants the CIC chair. Thanks for the laugh.]

James A. Moreland, whose obituary appeared in the February 15th issue of JasperJottings was a member of the Class of 1958.

May he rest in peace.
Warren Schlickenrieder, ’42

[JR: Thanks, Warren. Much appreciated. Mike’s getting old so maybe you’ll have to replace him at the “Class Year” desk in the vitrual Jasper Jottings news room.]
