Jack "Coach" Roche Scholarship

About the Jack "Coach" Roche Scholarship

This past July, Chicago’s Southside lost one of our best when University of Kansas student Jack “Coach” Roche was tragically killed in a traffic accident. Jack was entering his senior year at the University of Kansas where he served as a manager on the football team. Jack was a proud Alumni of St. Catherine of Alexandria (’13) and Marist High School (’17).

To honor Jack’s legacy, John, Kim, Patrick, and Lilly, along with their family and friends, have started a scholarship fund in Jack’s name. This scholarship will honor students who have the same attributes that Jack embodied: selflessness, hard work, kindness, and school spirit.

These scholarships will be given to 8th grade students at St. Catherine of Alexandria who will be attending Marist High School, Marist High School Seniors who are athletic managers, and University of Kansas students.

Please Join Us for a Coach Roche Fundraiser!
