About our Principal

Welcome, Jack Benny Middle School Families to the 2019-2020 school year! As a Waukegan High School graduate myself, I want to let you all know I am excited to work in Waukegan. My nineteen-year tenure in education includes fourteen years leading teachers and five years teaching physical education and drivers education. When I am not focusing on developing relationships to enhance your student's educational experiences and ensuring their safety, I spend all of my free time with my wife Brandeis and our four boys (Isaac 9, Elias 13, Brandon 18, and Diego 21).

The staff here at JBMS look forward to partnering with you in your child's(rens) learning experiences. Collaboration with your child's teacher(s) is a key component to overcoming challenges and ensuring academic success. I invite communication in-person or email as it is essential to foster a nurturing and accountable relationship with your student(s). For any feedback, concerns, and/or to schedule a meeting with me, you can reach me at jolopez@wps60.org.

I feel honored to serve this community I resided for years and embrace the opportunity to provide all the JBMS families an implementation of our community's vision for their loved ones educational experiences. And, look forward to developing relationships with all stakeholders impacting your student's success and each of you!

Julio O. Lopez
