Jonas Steldinger, who attended LI in 1997 as a German Exchange student, recently contacted the alumni office to update tell us about his move to Switzerland. He mentioned, without the slightest exaggeration, that he still feels incredibly thankful to the Welch family, Lynn (Blake) ‘73 and Jerry Welch ’69, of Burke Hollow for taking him into their home for an entire year. Jonas is a media rights lawyer working for a Swiss sports marketing agency called T.E.A.M. Marketing where he negotiates the worldwide media rights agreements for the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League on behalf the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA). In that capacity, he works almost entirely in English as a lawyer and as a non-native English speaker, he mentioned that he feels he owes a huge part of his professional career to LI.
