Dear Classreport users: We are one of the premiere social networking websites dating back to 2003. We are a small, family owned and operated business with less than 15 staff but freely host over a million class websites. Classreport holds a special place in the hearts of our users: Bravos. We are funded solely through your voluntary contributions. Despite our small size we have the same costs as any other site: servers, security, software, and staff. So now we ask for your support. If everyone reading this gave $15, our fundraiser would be over in one day. If Classreport is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online and ad-free for another year. Thank you.

Today's Featured Biography

 

 
Joe Sirianni Jr.


I have so many fond memories of my high school years. TJHS always had a rich tradition of sports and quality education.

My mother, Harriet (Bartholomew) Sirianni graduated from Jefferson in '33.

After our graduation I attempted to go to college, but I wasn't very motivated. I joined the Navy in the summer of '65, which turned out to be one of my best decisions I ever made. After my 12-week boot camp I received orders to board a guided missile destroyer, the USS Goldsboro DDG 20, which was home ported in Pearl Harbor. Our ship made two tours to the Gulf of Tonkin (Viet Nam). We provided naval gunfire support off the coast of Viet Nam. We were lucky never taking a direct hit.

When I left the Navy, one of my goals was to go back to Texas and get a college education. I enrolled into the University of Houston and graduated 3 years later with a BBA degree in Marketing.

During my college years, I met Patti Pettibone, from the TJHS class of '68. Patti was my sister's best friend at Jefferson. I instantly fell in love with Patti. Patti graduated from UT Nursing school on a Saturday; and I from U of H the following Saturday; we were married on that Sunday at Jefferson Methodist Church.

My first job was selling clothes in Houston at Leopold, Price & Rolle, a Division of Harmarx. I stayed with them for 10 years working my way up to be the EVP/GMM.

I got a promotion to New York City as the EVP/GMM at Wallach's, a Hartmarx chain of 30 specialty stores in New York, New Jersey and New England. Patti and I bought a home in the village of Northport, Long Island. The island was so beautiful, but the 3-hour per day commute took a toil on me.

Four years later I was offered a job to be the VP/GMM of Menswear at a little catalog company located in Dodgeville, WI. The firm was Lands' End. I took a chance and moved my family to the frozen tundra of Madison, WI in 1986. This job turned out to be a great carrer move. I traveled all over the Far East, Central and South America and southern Europe along with buyers and QA specialists looking for fabric, factories and mills to produce quality products for the men's line of sportswear and clothing.

I left Land's End in 2000, after 14 wonderful years, to get envolved in a start-up; an online web-based survey company we branded Enetrix. We specialized in building custom compensation and benefits surveys, financial and operational benchmark surveys and member-opinion and customer satisfaction surveys. Nine years later, we were acquired by Gallup, one of our survey clients. Currently I'm still employeed by Gallup as their Business Development/Operations Manager at the Madison city center.

Patti and I have had a wonderful life raising our 5 children. The quality of life in Madison is really awesome. The winters are cold and a little longer than I would prefer, but having 4 distinct seasons has been outstanding.

My biggest passion, besides my family, has been my love for golf. I play from April to October, and think about playing golf during the winter months. I also bowl, bike and workout. I do my best to stay fit and healthy.

I wish I could join everyone at our 50th. reunion, but my youngest daughter, Susi, who lives in Houston, will be getting married on September 28, 2013. I'm disappointed, because I really wanted to see everyone.

Best wishes to all.
