Sullivan, Kelly "Sully"
Class of 1974
Entering my 17th year in the Philadelphia area, (10 years 1st time and 7 this time), and really enjoy the East Coast. Currently the VP of Global Sales for Roush Life Sciences, which is a joint venture of Roush Enterprises along with Roush Fenway Racing, meaning I can entertain clients at NASCAR events and get into the pits and garages. I constantly travel and try to get together with HM Sigs when in Chicago, St. Louis, SoCal, about anywhere I can find Brothers! a month ago, Tom Frazer and I got together in the Philly area, and found he works with an Illinois Wesleyan Sig who noticed my ring at dinner!

Hagenow, Ronald "Baldie"
Class of 1972
Iím still working as a consultant for Metters Industries in support of the Army. I am retired from both from the Air National Guard and as a federal civil servant. My wife and I are anxiously awaiting the birth of our first grandchild in February. We both enjoyed the 40th celebration this past summer.
As for the questions ñ I first joined Lambda Sigma Chi (local) with the intent of one day being a Sigma Chi. I looked at other fraternities but this was the best fit for me.

Marsh, James
Class of 1983
I graduated in the class of 1983. I am living in Batavia, IL with my family. My oldest son, Bennett, is studying physics and electrical engineering as a sophomore at Purdue. My daughter, Alexa, is a senior in high school, and is planning to obtain her BSN (nursing) degree from one of five Midwest colleges to which she has applied. My younger son, Ryan, is a freshman in high school and is an avid wrestler. My wife of 22 years, Janice, is an elementary school teacher. I have been practicing law for 24 years, and am a partner in the Lisle, IL law firm Momkus McCluskey, LLC. We are a firm of 25 lawyers and practice in all areas except criminal law. I enjoy seeing my Sigma Chi brothers whenever our busy lives allow us to get together.

Bristow, Jon

Hello fellow brothers of Eta Mu. Life is good for the Bristows! Back in my hometown of Champaign for about 7 years. After stints in Augusta, Georgia and the Los Angeles area.

Zebig, Christopher "Z"
Class of 1991
Well, after living in Portland Oregon for the last 20 years, I just accepted a new job with my employer, Nike, and have moved back to Chicago. I am the Nike Soccer Team Sales Rep for the Midwest. I previously was managing our (Nike) Equipment business for the Emerging Markets where I managed all Equipment production (Socks/Bags/Soccer Balls). My Territory was an amazing experience in that I was able to visit and work with so many diverse cultures and so many talented people in countries like India, Korea, Argentina, Brazil and Mexico. I am very excited to be back in Chicago and looking forward to returning to Eastern very soon to call on our soccer program there. Have also been dating a wonderful lady that also attended Eastern (former Pink Panther), thus the reason I have moved here. So, my life is still very much connected to my days at Eastern Illinois.

Perry, Christopher
Class of 1995
I am still living and working in Dubai (since ë99). I am the General Manager of Wild Wadi Waterpark which was recognized as the fastest growing waterpark from 2010-2011 with the single largest attendance percentage growth in the waterpark industry worldwide. Wild Wadi is part of the global hospitality company, the Jumeirah Group which has become known as the sponor of #1 golfer in the world, Rory McIlroy. My job has afforded me the luxury and opportunity of being able to play golf with Rory McIlroy, Louis Oosthuizen, Chris Wood, Retief Goosen and a few other European Tour Players. I have also been fortunate enough to tour many global celebrities around the waterpark, the most famous being Michael Jackson and Tom Cruise. I was recently asked to be the Chairman of the International Association of Amusement Parks & Attractions (IAAPA) Global Waterpark Committee for 2013. I am also on the Board of Directors for IAAPA for 2013 ñ 2015.

My wife (Lisa Shrak Perry), who also went to EIU and was an Alpha Gam, continues to be a Director with the World Wildlife Fund in Dubai and our 2 children are now 8 (Noah) and 4 (Ella).

We travel back to the States every summer to see family and friends, and I am fortunate to maintain great friendships with many brothers (with the help of Facebook).

Since being in Dubai I have had the great opportunity to travel and find that living overseas provides us a great opportunity to do that. I have been to: Oman, Jordan, Egypt, Azerbaijan, Greece, Holland, England, Brazil, Bolivia, India, South Africa, Maldives, Mauritius, Thailand, Laos, Indonesia, Malaysia, Hong Kong, China, Australia and New Zealand. We continue to love the life of being ìex-patsî and donít see ourselves moving back to the US anytime soon.

Schultz, Kevin
Class of 1998
This program looks great. Iíve been through a lot of exciting changes over here and even recently reached out to several alums by replying to all on one of the e-mails that comes out to the group. Here is a quick snapshot of what Iíve been up toÖ
After college, I moved to Arizona, and played one season for the Cubs (semi-pro) baseball team. Although I was still trying to work my way out of semi-pro and into the farm system, unfortunately, the arm injury I suffered in college cut my hopes of one day playing in the Major Leagues. I then pursued a career in a corporate setting, telecom sales. I was there for eight long years during the telecom boom, working for industry giants such as WorldCom, MCI, SBC and AT&T.

In the end though, I discovered my true passion in helping people through the construction and remodeling process. After succeeding in the insurance claim industry and establishing a solid foundation in 2005, Safeguard was born. I am proud to say that since that day we have continued to grow year in and year out. This year alone we launched two brand new divisions. Our preventative home maintenance division and our window and flooring division.

I was married in February of 2007 to my wife Marina and have two beautiful daughters, Adrianna and Angela
