Jack Veatch brings contagious energy and skills in student relations to his work as Director of Student and Alum Relations. He joined the full-time staff in November 2022. Currently he is assisting Daette Lambert in leading the House during the dean’s 2022-23 sabbatical.
A graduate of Kent State University, he received the MDiv degree in 2019 from the University of Chicago Divinity School as a Disciples Divinity House Scholar. Jack was ordained in the Ohio Region of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).

“I am thankful for the House for many reasons,” he said. “I met lifelong friends here, I first felt that I could be a scholar here, I met my wife Aneesah here, and we got married in this chapel. My vision is that folks will feel the same gratitude towards this place that I do. When the scholarship produced is so insightful, the relationships so deep, the growth so profound, and the support and care is so tangible—how can they help but feel a similar gratitude?”
