HAPPY BIRTHDAY JACK


On August 29, 1923, Jack Peltason was born.

He served as UC Irvine's 2nd Chancellor from 1984 until 1992. He was MY Chancellor. He then served as President of the entire UC system from 1992 to 1995. If you ever drive near the campus, you'll probably run into Peltason Drive ... a street named after Jack. He is an incredible person — a courageous maverick within the higher educational arena — who I am blessed to have as a friend and mentor.

Here is one of my favorite photos with me, Monica and Andrew visiting with Jack, his amazing wife Suzie, daughter Jill, and granddaughter Gracie.

I, like the MULTITUDE of people whose lives he has made an impact on over the years, LOVE Jack.
