jumpin jack flash


Congrats to Jack Gillum!

The former Editor in Chief of The Santa Clara just landed his dream gig at USA Today, where he will be a database editor, overseeing data-driven projects, working on some of his own enterprise projects and coordinating with IT folks on interactive Web apps. He interned there the summer after his sophomore year.

Jack will be leaving for DC as soon as he wraps things up at The Arizona Daily Star, where he has covered cops, business and been part of the computer-assisted-reporting team. er, maybe he WAS the computer-assisted-reporting team. He'll correct me if I'm wrong.

You can check out his work here. I'll post a headshot if he ever sends me one. (update: he just did!) Meanwhile, pretty darn cool for someone barely a year out of j. school, yeah? Should give you all hope. bk

Jack,

Will you build a nice handmade sign for USA Today like you did for The Santa Clara? It might be a good way to start things off on the right foot.

Congratulations! TSC is still benefiting from all your hard work at SCU.

That's a great idea! Although it looks like they have a handsome sign already:

Is that Semansky in the background?
