   Fifty First Anniversary Reunion Dinner

Altman Building 135 West 18th Street New York City

Thursday, May 3, 2012


After finishing a sterling career at the Prep where he earned All-City Honors in baseball and football and was elected Senior Class President, at the urging of his coach, George Paterno, John attended Harvard University. While there he earned eight varsity letters

and starred in football, baseball and track. Upon graduating John played two years in the Red Sox minor league system, and then went on to a successful pro football career as a cornerback playing in the Super Bowl III Namath “Guarantee” game for the Jets and the Franco Harris “Immaculate Reception” game for the Steelers.

Since his playing days, John has combined a career in sports broadcasting for CBS and NBC with the daily operation of his facilities management firm, Cambridge Corporate Services. At the same time, he has devoted himself to charitable causes.

Compassion and respect for the disabled is a central theme for John. Devoted to his younger sister, Margaret, who struggles with cerebral palsy, one of John’s core focuses is support of ABILITIES, one of the world’s foremost facilities for educating and training people with disabilities. Each year he coordinates the ABILITIES Sports Night which raises over $1,000,000 annually. In addition, for the last 40 years, he has managed the Namath/Dockery Instructional Football Camp which has extended hundreds of scholarships to promising young minority athletes. He has been named “Man of the Year” by the HOPE Program, American Lung Association and National Center for Disability Services, and is active in the National Theatre Workshop of the Handicapped.

John and his wife, Anne, reside in Brooklyn. His older daughter, Erin, is a veterinarian, and his daughter, Ciara, is completing a PhD in Psychology at Fordham. They have two grandchildren, Maeve and Finn MacDermott.


After attending St. John’s Prep and serving in the U.S. Army during World War II, Jack enrolled at
St. John’s University. Upon graduation in 1949, he began his career as a professional baseball player in the Boston Red Sox organization. In the 1951-52

school year he coached the varsity and freshman basketball teams at Brooklyn Prep. A leg injury ended his playing days prematurely, and in 1952 he began his 22-year baseball coaching career at St. John’s compiling a 366-115 career coaching record, leading the team to 11 post-season and three College World Series appearances. Jack moved on to become Athletic Director for St. John’s for 22 years during which time he was also President of the NIT basketball conference and the driving force behind and one of the original founders of the Big East Conference.

Jack has been the recipient of innumerable honors and awards, including membership in two college Halls of Fame; and in 2007 the St. John’s baseball stadium was re- named the “Jack Kaiser Stadium” in his honor. Jack has been a mentor of the
St. John’s community for nearly 70 years as a student, athlete, coach, and administrator. He is currently the Athletic Director Emeritus and still working every day.

Jackandhiswife,Connie,liveintheboroughofQueens,NY. Hehasadaughter, Robin Winograd and grandson, Jeremy who is a junior at Bennington College in Vermont.

Hall of Fame basketball coach Lou Carnesecca, Jack’s long-time friend and fellow coach at St. John’s, will introduce Jack at tonight’s awards ceremony.
