St. James “Family Tree”

We know how difficult it is for many of us to associate names and faces. This page is offered to help us in that regard and thereby strengthen our relationships with one another. Using your mouse, just roll over a familiar face to reveal their first name. If you are not already featured on our “Family Tree”, we invite you to submit your photo now. It’s so easy to do!

Send your photo(s) to jeskepolyak@gmail.com. Photos taken using your cell phone work great! Don’t worry if any cropping is required, we will do that for you. If you wish to also include photos of your minor children, you must provide parental consent using our media release form. Your children will not be identified by name at the site. If an adored pet is an important part of your family unit, feel free to include their photo as well.

While I was growing up in Trenton, NJ, my entire focus and attention was on the Catholic Church.  It was the center of my life while I attended 12 years of Catholic school, served as an altar boy, and attended Mass every weekend.  For a very long time, I even considered becoming a priest.  The illness of my mother when I was 13 years old and her early death 3 years later contributed to a change in my direction.  I enrolled at Rutgers University, studied medical technology, and earned a B.S. degree in biology.   Since then I have moved away from the medical sciences and find fulfillment in serving in administrative support roles. …

I am the youngest in a family of 7 children.  I was born in Illinois, but I have also lived in Connecticut, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, and Tennessee.  I enjoy living in Tennessee the most, by far.  I have especially loved the many experiences Drew and I have shared in Knoxville since 1998.  My greatest satisfaction in life has always come from helping prepare people to achieve their goals.  That being said, I have never been more inspired, or  felt more embraced by a church congregation, than I have at St. James.  It has been a long and winding road, but I am glad it has brought me here.

Soon after I was born in 2011, I adopted Kevin & Drew as my two Dads.  I spend my life paying attention to everything they do and thinking of ways to please them.  One of my most important responsibilities is coordinating their exercise routine, which includes having them fetch balls & tugs and making them perform outdoor walks 3 times a day.  Because of my small size, I can’t offer them much in terms of physical protection, so I focus on providing unconditional love and emotional support.  Lacking opposing thumbs, I cannot use mobile phones very well or send emails.  So, I prefer face to face communication.
