This is the second installment of our ‘My Start Story’ podcast series. In this edition, we feature Sister Jean Dolores Schmidt, longtime chaplain of the Loyola University Chicago men’s basketball team.

The 100-year-old basketball-obsessed nun was already a Chicago sports celebrity, but during the Loyola Ramblers’ surprise run in the 2018 NCAA basketball tournament, her popularity reached new heights. Her quick wit and love for the team captured hearts everywhere, and she became one of the best stories of the tournament.

From spiritual guidance to scouting reports, Sister Jean does it all for the Ramblers. Her journey, from finding her calling, to her role as team chaplain, and her secrets to long life, is entertaining and inspiring, and her passion for life and helping others is contagious.
