Jack Kennedy is a senior that participates in math club and National Honors Society at JA and has played lacrosse since fourth grade. We sat down with Jack as part of our 24 with ‘24 interview series.

 Q: What’s your favorite memory of your time at Alder?

A: Lacrosse’s playoff win over Chaminade Julienne last season.

Q: What are three things you can’t live without?

A: Friends, sports, and games.

Q: What’s one thing people don’t know about you?

A: I’m left-handed.

Q: How would you define yourself in three words?

A: Extroverted, athletic, student.

Q: What was your last dream?

A: OK, so for reference, I bought a stock back in August, and I had a dream that it crashed really low. So not really a dream, more of a nightmare.

Q: Best piece of advice you’ve received?

A: Maintain a good GPA as a freshman.

Q: If you made a documentary, what would it be about and why?

A: Probably about the evolution of social media.

Q: Last piece of content you consumed that made you cry?

A: The Jason Kelce‘s retirement video.

Q: Song you can listen to on repeat?

A: Probably anything by Frank Sinatra.

Q: If you could switch lives with someone for a day, who would it be?

A: Probably someone super-rich.

Like Elon Musk?

Yeah, but he has to deal with Twitter, and I don’t want to have to deal with that. I’ll say Jeff Bezos he doesn’t have a whole lot to worry about right now.

Q: Dream country to visit?

A: Probably Switzerland or somewhere European.

Q: What’s the biggest surprise you’ve had?

A: When I was twelve for Christmas my parents got us surprise tickets to go to Disney World.

Q: If your life was a TV show, what song would be in the intro?

A: It’s a song called “Fluffing a Duck” by Kevin McCloud.

Q: What 3 people living or dead would you like to make dinner for?

A: Gordon Ramsey and both of my grandpas.

Q:The most adventurous thing you’ve done in your life?

A: I wouldn’t say this is so much adventurous, but spontaneous, but after Megan Krummrey’s grad party… a group of friends went out to Dublin and had fun.

Q: What would you like to be remembered for?

A: I’d say hopefully for just being nice and talking to everybody.
