Christina (Brasser) Clark ’02 and James Clark ’02

It was 200 nights before graduation in the Fall of 2001... our eyes briefly locked upon entering The Grape after a not-so-semi-formal event for us seniors (aka “200 Nights”). The moment was brief but man was it significant. As the last call bell rang, Christina was in pursuit. After a brief conversation, I leaned in and kissed Christina. To this day, I still don’t know what came over me but the stars aligned and it just seemed like the right thing to do. Two days later we went on a “date” to Archie’s (who goes on a date at Fairfield??). They say “when you know, you know” and within months of that serendipitous night, we knew. Our story has been told a thousand times but one of those recounts stands out above all. In June of 2017 we wrote a song about it. In fact, this song was written with Nick Hexum, the lead singer of my favorite band, 311. After a 6 hour song writing session in California, the song/demo Worlds Collide was born.

Fairfield provided a wonderful education for us, Christina’s parents, her 2 siblings and 2 of my sisters...not to mention, roughly a score of aunts, uncles and cousins. Most importantly I met my beautiful wife at Fairfield. We were married in 2006 and now have two wonderful children. Thank you for the foundation, Fairfield U!
