Support "The Jack"

He was a student, an athlete, a coach, a loyal friend, but most of all, a man who inspired his peers and brought out the best in people—a true Hall of Famer.

In October 2016, the Catholic Memorial community experienced a great loss with the passing of Jack Dahlstrom ’63. Jack embodied the spirit of CM as a student and a coach. 

Jack was CM’s first four-letter varsity athlete: football, baseball, basketball and track. He had a tremendous impact on those around him, and, even as a student, took a leadership role and began influencing and shaping young men. To continue his legacy of impacting students, we would like to name Catholic Memorial’s new, state-of-the-art weight room after him—“The Jack.” 

Our goal is to raise $100,000. The story of Jack’s impact on the men of CM should not be filed away in history. What better way to ensure that Jack’s story continues to live at CM than to name the weight room after him? His name will be prominently displayed for all to, once again, be motivated and inspired by Jack.

We are just beginning our fundraising effort and need your help. Any assistance is appreciated. If you are interested in helping to make a permanent remembrance of Jack’s legacy at Catholic Memorial, please call 617-469-8017 or email
