Coach Stein



Dear JPT Family

JP Taravella High School will never be the same.  School leaders have to deal with many things, losing one of our own is the one of the hardest.  At JPT when we say family we mean it.  Coach Stein was a perfect example of being one of the leaders of our JPT family.  He never met a stranger, he was as REAL as anyone could be and most people quickly picked up that he was all HEART.

Coach Stein was hospitalized on July 2020 with COVID and he fought hard for his life.  His beautiful family:  wife Michele, daughters Hailey & Ilana, and all of the community battled hard through love and prayer.  Ultimately, on August 20, 2020 our beloved Jason Stein passed away.  If you want to honor him then learn from his positive impact. Pay it forward. Try to impact others as he did.  Open your heart and let people in.  Be positive. Be kind. Take care of each other.  Don’t be quick to judge.  These were all his qualities and so much more.  As an educator he wore many hats: teacher, coach, mentor, driver’s ed. teacher, athletic director, counselor, and so much more.  In these roles he was able to impact so many, let's follow in his footsteps.

The JPT family would like to pay tribute by dedicating our baseball field in his name.  He was a baseball coach before he was an athletic director at JPT and in doing so he impacted so many positively, his passion was always baseball and his beloved Yankees.  I invite you to join us at our kick off as follows:

  • January 29th special Alumni Game (Please see ticket below for more details)
