Jack O'Connor - Class of 1952
After high school, I attended Napa Jr. College, played football, and earned an AA degree. I returned to Manchester and worked at the BOJOCK lumber company for 14 years, married, and had for children. Expanding my education was a priority, so I attended Sonoma State University, received a B. S. degree with a major in P. E. and a minor in biology, and a secondary teaching credential. Petaluma High School was my teaching and coaching base for over 30 years. I taught science for 26 years and coached wrestling for 4 years. Coaching duties in football and baseball lasted for over 30 years. I'm presently retired, live in Petaluma, married to Ellie, and enjoy fishing and hunting.
