John P. "Jack" Malarkey - The Celebration of a Living Legend

Updated: an hour ago



Our lives are richer because of him. Jack Malarkey, a man of extreme personal humility, has had an impact on thousands of us by his example of unmatched respect and love. People describe Jack in many ways; he would like to be known simply as “friend.”

And so, we are proud and thankful be able to honor this man who knows nothing better than the true meaning of friendship. His devotion to God, country, family and Marian Catholic High School sets him apart. We are thankful to God for sharing Jack Malarkey with all of us. His unselfish example as a mentor, athlete, teacher, coach, vice principal, principal, booster, parent and grandparent, continues to show us the way. Jack Malarkey’s loyalty to the Marian family and to our motto, “Ad Jesum per Marian” has left an indelible mark on Catholic education.
