Letter: Students write in support of Mr. O'Connor
After that moment, he voluntarily dedicated two nights a week and almost every weekend to coach us through our practices and tournaments, despite his busy schedule with all his other priorities. Even to this day, Jerry continues to support the six of us, attending every one if our home basketball games and still goes out of his way to give us tips when needed. Jerry O'Connor is a hard working man who loves his job and every single kid he works with. He puts the majority of his time into helping the kids with their academics and even their basketball skills. Upon hearing about this devastating news, we decided to write this letter to inform the public about our relationship with Jerry and how dedicated he is to the school and his students. Jerry O'Connor is a huge asset to the community and it's a shame that this is happening to him.
