Mid importance as alumni list good. Adding more in-line refs would get this a B. More pics? Welcome Victuallers 16:41, 15 April 2007 (UTC)

Did Jon Stewart and Keira Knightley really visit JHS? We need a source for this. -tnoz (PSAT Warrior, JHS '99)

Yes, they did. Jon Stewart came to talk on Career Day in 2004 at the height of his "Indecision 2004" run on the Daily Show. We would have a source of it, but the Times Picayune never ran an article because it has the rest of the city to worry about. The student newspaper did have an article put it wasn't printed online at the time. Ask local students, he did come. --The ManBorg

Yes Stewart came, but was only here for about an hour though.FrAnthonyMcGinnBaby 03:38, 20 July 2006 (UTC)

So are there any verifiable sources? If not, the information doesn't belong in Wikipedia. --ElKevbo 04:06, 20 July 2006 (UTC)

People, that "source" for the Knightley visit is obviously false. As much as I would like to believe that Coach Robinson said "It is obligatory that I get down there an [sic] listen to that woman," he probably didn't. The use of "it is obligatory" is an ancient phrase used to mock Coach Robinson for at least the last 10 years. I also find it unlikely an actress with no connection to a) Jesuit b) New Orleans or c) the United States would visit the school. I also find it unlikely that Jon Stewart would stop by for career day--he also has no connection to the city, is a big star, and his politics probably do not align with the administration's. I also removed Ratzinger's visit--it is very unlikely that a major player from the Vatican would visit the school. We need sources for all of this information. - tnoz, PSAT Warrior, JHS '99

Elkevbo is an edit nazi, he leaves false stuff as long as it is worded right. He removes anything critical of the school. Down with elkebo's nazi edits. FrAnthonyMcGinnBaby 20:50, 20 July 2006 (UTC)

Did the Jesus actor really visit? When/why? --tnoz 22:07, 24 July 2006 (UTC)

OK NOW you haven't been following your alma mater at all. Call anyone in the theology department Jim Cavizel really did visit. -- 05:33, 25 July 2006 (UTC)

You are right I haven't been following the list of actors to visit the little high school I went to. But I did some checking tonight and the Jesus did visit! So it's legit. --tnoz 03:48, 26 July 2006 (UTC)

What's the source showing Howard Stern attended Jesuit? I don't think that is true. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:21, 20 May 2010 (UTC)

Hale Boggs[edit]

Can anyone find a source verifying that Hale Boggs went to Jesuit? I've looked and I can't find anything.-- Deville (Talk) 22:38, 21 August 2006 (UTC)

I'm removing him for now since noone seems to have the source. If a source shows up we'll put him back in.--Deville (Talk) 21:33, 12 September 2006 (UTC)

It's says so on his wikipedia page. I don't know how to do signitures Sorry.—Preceding unsigned comment added by TheManBorg (talkcontribs)

Actually, this link says he attended the "public and parochial schools of Jefferson Parish". -- Deville (Talk) 21:16, 10 October 2006 (UTC)

Other guest speakers at the school include Rusty Staub, Will Clark, Alec Gifford, Phil Johnson, and Buddy Diliberto. All of them were speakers during the 1997 school year, as Jesuit celebrated its 150th anniversary. Unfortunately, I can not verify that with proof, except that I was a student in 10th grade at the time and witnessed them speak to us myself. Also, all five of those speakers are Jesuit graduates.

Dr. John[edit]

Never graduated from Jesuit, so of course he's not an alum. I've removed him from the list of notable alumni. Whoever put that nonsense about him graduating in 1959 is an outright liar. He quit in 8th grade, after a priest suspended him for playing guitar raunchily. It's in his autobiography. Look it up. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 06:04, 29 April 2007 (UTC).

John Travolta[edit]

These seems to be totally wrong. The John Travolta article itself says that he went to Dwight Morrow High School in New Jersey. Does anyone have any arguments in favor of keeping it? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Pitilessbronze (talkcontribs) 04:34, 14 October 2009 (UTC)
