Central hires new AD to replace Jones July 1

When Hinsdale Central athletic director Dan Jones retires at the end of the school year, he will be replaced by Mike Jezioro. The Hinsdale High School District 86 Board approved the hire Dec. 15.

“I’m really looking forward to continuing the academic and athletic excellence at Hinsdale Central and working with the staff, students and community members to continue those standards,” he told board members after the vote.

Jezioro has spent the past five years as the athletic and activities director for South Elgin High School. He has almost 20 years of experience in secondary education and high school athletics that have included stints coaching softball, wrestling and football. He also taught math at two high schools and was a dean of students at Glenbard East High School.

He has a bachelor’s in math with a minor in secondary education from Elmhurst College and a master’s in education administration from Governors State University.

Jezioro received a one-year contract with a base salary of $160,000.
