My Story


"I felt deeply that this was about to be my (27 Seconds) at this institution that would change my life forever!" How does a fifty-year-old member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints who was retired from coaching high school girls basketball and retired from practicing physical therapy end up being enrolled as a student at the University of Notre Dame?  I did it by spending my life discovering, developing, and sharing my own unique purpose and mission in life.  I had a vision in mind, went after it with passion, and refused to let anything get in my way.  After years filled with both successes and failures, the vision became reality and I was admitted to my dream university. Then, after four more years of rigorous study and sacrifice, I found myself exactly where I'd always dreamed to be - approaching a platform erected inside the Edmund P. Joyce Center. It was graduation day, May 18, 2013, and I was being awarded a Masters Degree in Nonprofit Administration, with honors, from the Mendoza College of Business.  As I walked up the steps of the platform, I glanced upward and saw my image being broadcast upon the overhead Jumobtron screen in that beautiful sporting arena. I could hardly contain my excitement as I walked across that magnificent stage to receive my diploma.  And, as I anticipated for so many years, that walk, those cherished 27 seconds,

changed my life forever.

~ Jack Rolfe, CEO & Founder, School of Life Foundation

My 27 seconds Journey at Notre Dame was inspired by Rudy Ruettiger. Rudy also had a life filled with successes, failures and a dream to graduate from Notre Dame. His vision included playing football. His official time on the field lasted just 27 Seconds.
