Rev. Warren Wright, S.J., English teacher & dean's office assistant

Rev. Warren Wright, S.J., longtime assistant dean of students and English teacher, died Nov. 19, 2012, at the Sacred Heart Jesuit Center in Los Gatos. He was 65.

His tenure at SI stretched from 1996 to 2011, and his wise mentorship touched the lives of countless students and teachers.

He had been a Jesuit for 39 years and an ordained priest for 30 years. His priestly ministry took him to schools and parishes throughout the California Province of the Society of Jesus

Warren was greatly esteemed by colleagues as a hardworking, conscientious and compassionate priest, who was clear-sighted and perceptive, with a self-deprecating sense of humor. He coped admirably with years of suffering from diabetes and renal failure.

Rev. Thomas O’Neill, S.J. ’74, Superior of the SI Jesuit community, preached at Warren’s Nov. 27 funeral, and noted in his homily that “the mayor himself knew less about the problems with Muni than did Warren, the guardian of the gate to Brother Draper’s office. If you had a good story or could make him laugh or somehow could explain yourself without setting off Warren’s exquisitely attuned ‘blarney-o-meter,’ well, then, you might just make it by his window without the dreaded ‘P’ circled on the ATPX card.”

On Nov. 28, SI held a memorial Mass for Fr. Wright in the Orradre Chapel, where he was eulogized by SI religious studies teacher Michael Shaughnessy ’67 and Assistant Principal for Student Affairs Bobby Gavin.

“He committed his life and his ministry to making God’s love real and perceptible to the people whom he served and with whom he worked,” said Shaughnessy. “While he reached out to people of all ages, he had a particular gift of reaching out to alienated teenagers. … He didn’t take himself too seriously and he shot holes through pretension whenever he encountered it.”

Gavin praised Fr. Wright for being a man of “intelligence, quick-wit, hard rationality and well-earned experience.”

Students also sang Fr. Wright’s praises on SI’s Facebook page in a heartfelt memorial to this great priest and loving mentor. S

I believe the one considers everybody vital. This teacher should be proficient, have an inspirational mentality, and be capable at the ability of teaching his or her subject. Understudy achievement should be obvious, implying that the vast majority of the understudies picked up from being instructed by his way to teaching. This teacher won't let anybody fall flat. Understudies are roused by various things, and the best teacher will discover Help with Assignment what persuades difficult understudies to facilitate them to understand their prospective. Teachers are time after time required to do considerably more than teach (i.e. council association, printed material, group gatherings and arranging, tutoring, and different obligations). The best teacher is sufficiently composed to do those different obligations well.
