Whatever Happened to the Class of ’83?

December 8, 2007

It’s been (almost) 25 years since I graduated from MIT, and fellow Delta Tau Delta fraternity brother Mike Santullo is trying to put together a reunion. To get things rolling, he sent out a freshman photo of the 15 members of my pledge class.

DTD class of ‘83

Now that’s a flashback moment. Where are they now?

  • Jeff Caddell – Unknown. Probably lives in the south, though last reported sighting (around 2002-2003) was in Maryland, working as a senior project engineer at the McCormick Flavor Group.
  • Jono Goldstein – Managing director at TA Associates in Boston.
  • Steve Yoon – Doctor working at Center for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta.
  • Steve DeFalco – President and CEO at MDS International.
  • Brian Jacobs – Founder and General Partner at Emergence Capital Partners in San Mateo. Who says a man can’t escape his past hair-style? He’s also the lead investor in Krugle.
  • Mike Santullo – Retired entrepreneur living in Palo Alto, following the sale of Four11.com/RocketMail to Yahoo way back when. Now keeping busy as the founder and co-chair of the California Clean Tech Open competition. He was also an angel investor in Krugle.
  • Jeff Molzahn – Died of pancreatic cancer June 25, 2001.
  • Randy Schweickart – Manager, Process Engineering at ICOS Corporation in Seattle and soccer dad extraordinaire.
  • Chris Schneider – Fellow Nevada City resident and Krugle employee, who also teaches physics and coaches Ultimate at Bitney College Prep High School.
  • Doug Sargent – Working for Symantec in Oregon as a sysadmin.
  • Jeff Muss – Rocket scientist at Sierra Engineering. Yup, he really is one.
  • Ken Krugler – That’s me, fluffy ‘do and all.
  • Alex Lightman – The guy formerly known as Alex Petofi. Currently CEO at Innofone. It’s kind of hard to tell what exactly he’s doing these days, but it’s got somethin to do with IPv6 technology.
  • Alan Taylor – President of Sedway Consulting in Boulder, CO.
  • Joe Masci – Another stealthy classmate. Recently spotted doing a charity bike ride to raise money for Alzheimer’s research.

I’m looking forward to seeing everybody, hopefully in Boston this coming June right before the MIT reunion.
