Junior Encounter Co-Moderator, Head Pétanque Coach
Marist staff member since 1999
My younger brother and sister, Isaac and Aliza Fones, attended Marist when Fr. Vincent
Lopez was the principal. As I was finishing my master's degree I occasionally subbed at
Marist beginning in 1998. I began teaching at Marist in 1999 and have loved the
community, my fellow staff, the parents and the great students.
For me, the best thing about Marist is the retreat program. I enjoy getting to share my
faith and seeing God's love transform young hearts and minds as they experience
Christ's tangible presence in their community here at Marist. I have previously been a
girls soccer coach (5 years), a boys golf coach, (10 years), and am currently the
Pétanque coach. One of my life's aspirations is to represent the United States in the
World Championship of Pétanque.
My wife Stacey and I met and fell in love at Marist. At the time she was a Latin teacher.
We both started on staff at Marist in 1999. We were married in Rome, Italy on a spring
break trip with Marist students and parents in 2001. I am currently a postulant for holy
orders in the Episcopal Church in my third year of a four-year Master of Divinity degree
at the Church Divinity School of the Pacific in Berkeley, California. I do the bulk of my
coursework online and travel twice a year (June and January) for intensive in-residence
