  • Re: “A New Era of Science Teaching,” Winter 2016 Chapman Magazine

I am a high school biomedical science teacher and have been teaching for 20 years. Five years ago I started a summer enrichment  program for fourth- through eighth-graders called Scrub Club, providing students with project-based learning, inquiry thinking as well as literacy. I am happy to see that Chapman is working with teachers to improve their craft and get them excited!

Dr. Adibi was one of my favorites. He really changed my understanding of economic theory. Basically, he changed it from a fog to clarity. He had a huge impact on my life.

  • I worked with Essie 1991– 93 while working on my MBA. He was a wonderful mentor, teacher and boss. He really cared about his students and  was able to explain complex things in a way that they could understand. I loved his honesty and his sense of humor. He will be sorely missed.

  • He was one of the most insightful economists I have dealt with in my years reporting for both the Orange County Business Journal and the Los Angeles Business Journal. I will miss his depth of perspective and his humor. It’s a loss for all of Southern California.

Rest in peace, Jack. You and your amazing talents will be greatly missed. Fans of Jack’s work may want to know that there is a secret reference to him in Disneyland. Look for the “Jack”  o’Lantern made in his image, wearing his iconic glasses, which can be found just outside Goofy’s Playhouse in Mickey’s Toontown.
