In Memory of Jordan Sebastian

Jordan Sebastian ’11 was a cherished member of the Hopkins community. After completing his degree at the University of Rhode Island, Jordan returned to The Hill to coach several sports and advise in the Junior School. As Dr. Bynum wrote of Jordan’s importance to Hopkins, “He loved this school and we loved him back - and we always will.” 
"I thought I was a good football player, but Coach Sebastian never let me be satisfied. He always had one more coaching point, one more thing to correct, one more insight for me, and he never stopped pushing me to be the best player I could be.
Coach Sebastian was, and is, the definition of tough. He came to practice every day he could and never complained or brought attention to himself. All he wanted was for the team to realize our potential as players and as men."
-John Blumenthal '18

"I've never had a coach act as if he was my big brother. I'll always love and remember him." -Douglas Guilford '19

“Coach was the epitome of the man I want to be. He made everyone around him a better person by pushing us to our full potential. Everyone who knew him will remember him for the rest of their lives.” - Jason Alfandre ‘18
