We would like to announce the appointment of our new Headmaster, Mr. Jesse Saltarelli. Jesse grew up locally in the city of Tonawanda and attended Franciscan University of Steubenville. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Theology and Philosophy. He comes to Chesterton from St. Bernadette Church in Orchard Park. As the Director of Youth Ministry and Confirmation Preparation, he collaborated with the pastor to develop programs that integrated high school students into the larger parish community.
Jesse met his wife, Sarah, playing soccer at Franciscan and they have been married for 5 years. They have one daughter and are expecting their second this summer. He has a passion for soccer, board games, camping, and hand crafting leather goods.
Jesse will join Justyna Braun, Lauri Hahn, and Sr. Lindsey Joan on our leadership team starting on June 21st. Our Headmaster Emeritus, Jim Simon, will continue to work with the team through mid-July to ensure a smooth transition.
