Beloved coach, teacher celebrates 63 years at Landon

Beloved tennis coach celebrates 63 years

BETHESDA, MD (WUSA9) - Longevity is one thing, excellence is another. When you combine the two you have Mac Jacoby of Landon.

Mac celebrated his 63rd year with Landon last Tuesday along with his 90th birthday.  

Thank you Mac for all of your hard work, dedication and loyalty to Landon and the Landon community. You have lead by example and have impacted generations of young men.

I never had Mac as a teacher or coach but if you went to Landon, it was impossible not to know who he was and impossible for Mac not to be approachable.

We had a nice chat last Tuesday how lifelong relationships are forged between the student and the teacher/coach paradigm. The classroom and athletic field are so different and to have the same person nurture and guide you with both is the Landon way.
