Jim Angsten 66'


Dear St. George Alumni:

 Jim Angsten is a 1966 graduate of St. George. While at St. George he was a standout student-athlete. He participated on the St. George football, basketball, baseball and track teams.  After graduating from St. George, Jim attended Western Illinois on a football scholarship where he starred on the gridiron for the Leathernecks and earned a Masters in Health Sciences.

Jim has been a teacher and coach in Catholic Education for 42 years.  His first seven years of teaching and coaching were at Montini Catholic in Lombard and for the last 35 years at St. Rita High School.  Jim is a member of the Catholic League Hall of Fame and has received numerous awards for coaching and teaching. 

 On April 1, 2013, Jim and the rest of the Angsten family received devastating news. Jim was diagnosed with ALS-Lou Gehrig's Disease, a horribly debilitating, motor neuron disease. There is currently only one approved treatment for this disease and no cure.  Jim has been married to Pam since 1975. They have three children Tim, Jamie & Suzie. Jim and Pam are proud grandparents to 9 grandchildren.

 Over the last 25 years, "Coach Angsten" has become an avid Bike rider, last summer alone, he rode his bike 3500 miles. Despite his physical limitations, he still continues to ride every chance he gets. In honor of him, a benefit has been created to help offset the cost of the tremendous medical expenses he will incur. 

On Sunday, August 18, 2013, please join us for "Coach Angsten's Cruise" benefiting, "Coach Angsten's Cause". The ride will take place at the George W. Dunne bike trail, just south of Aurelios Pizza in Tinley Park. A reception will be held after the ride at Aurelios Pizza at 159th and Oak Park Avenue in Tinley Park. Please join us for food, drinks, music, raffles and fun. 

Please visit  www.coachangstenscause.com for more information and to register for this event. We will keep you posted on other events that are being planned in the very near future to help the family offset the medical costs that Jim and his family will incur.  If you have any questions or would like to help please contact:
