Jevon Jesus ‘20 will attend the University of San Francisco this fall where he hopes to study business. He will head to the city armed with many skills he honed at Serra, including patience and “the ability to roll with the punches and remain mentally strong,” he said.
He has his parents to thank for teaching him what it means to be a man and a good person in the world. “My parents have been there for me through every obstacle that I have faced and have given me the tools that I need in order to succeed in life,” he said.
One obstacle Jevon had to overcome was healing from two major knee surgeries -- one that left him in a brace for more than nine months.
“I grew mentally and physically, I learned what patience is and how to get through major obstacles in life,” he said of his recovery period.
A member of the Serra tennis team and Varsity Basketball team, Jevon’s favorite Serra tradition is the annual Jungle Game. “Winning the jungle game this year and feeling the energy of the crowd really hypes us up,” he said.
In 10 years, Jevon hopes to own his own company, have a loving family, help give back to the community, and help to make a positive change in the world.
Congratulations, Jevon! Best of luck at USF!
