The late Kevin Schantz was the engine behind Jessica's Project until his passing in May of 2017.  Jessica's Project was very close to his heart.  Kevin's coordinator skills and guidance allowed the program to grow.  Students would say of him that he was "Really cool!"  His passion and legacy was that of service.  He cared about the community, showed kindness, and took action to extend a helping hand.  Kevin is greatly missed, but his legacy of service will live on throughout St. Philip's College and the community.
