Nemechek, Eric
The Nemechek Family

Eric Nemechek ’90 writes, “Apologizing for the delay in submitting our fantastic family news, we’ve been a little busy. Imarried Katherine Sperry on July 6, 2013, in Katherine’s hometown of Seattle. Surrounded and supported by three generations of family and friends, the ceremony was held at the Seattle Tennis Club. Essentially a giant family reunion, we were also blessed to have friends in attendance from our grade school, high school, college, and post-college grown-up lives. A few months prior to Tommy Nemechek (Regis Jesuit class of ’18) starting his first year of high school, Katherine and I welcomed Tommy’s baby brother, Andrew (Regis Jesuit class of ’32), on April 17, 2014. Katherine graduated from Gonzaga, so basketball season can be a little rough around our house in Littleton, Colorado. Tommy will be attending UC San Diego’s School of Global Policy and Strategy, International Relations program, in fall 2018.”
