On August 1, 2014, Fr. Timothy P. Kesicki, SJ, will begin his new role as president of the Jesuit Conference, the organization that represents the Society of Jesus in the United States. The former provincial of the Jesuits’ Chicago-Detroit Province, Fr. Kesicki first met the Jesuits when he was an undergraduate at John Carroll University in Ohio, where he studied political science. His formation as a Jesuit included philosophy studies at Loyola University Chicago, theology studies at the Jesuit School of Theology in Berkeley, California, and studies in educational administration at Teacher’s College in Columbia, New York.
From 1988 to 1991, Fr. Kesicki worked at the University of Detroit Jesuit High School and Academy, where he taught theology, directed the service program and served on the pastoral team. After his 1994 ordination, Fr. Kesicki worked for a year with the Jesuit Refugee Service in Uganda and then taught theology at Loyola High School in Detroit until 2000. From 2000 to 2008 he served as president of St. Ignatius High School in Cleveland. In 2008, he was appointed provincial of the Detroit Province and a year later provincial of the Chicago Province; the two provinces came together under his leadership in 2010. A native of Erie, PA, he enjoys skiing, cycling, and playing the piano.
