The Loyola men's basketball team chaplain sister Jean turns 103 years old.
As the chaplain for the Loyola basketball team, Sister Jean has experienced some of her most amazing years.
“The legacy I want is that I helped people and I was not afraid to give my time to people and teach them to be positive about what happens and that they can do good for other people,” Sister Jean told the Tribune in 2019.
In 1919, Sister Jean was born in San Francisco.
Sister Jean, who was born into a house of sports lovers, played high school basketball from 1933 to 1937.
She joined the Sisters of Charity of the Blessed Virgin Mary convent in Iowa after graduating from high school and became a nun.
She then returned to California as a teacher and coach in 1941.
In 2019, Sister Jean celebrated her 100th birthday with ten parties, one for each decade.
