We are pleased to announce The Rev. Christopher N. Jambor as the 2019 Saints Award honoree, the School’s highest honor bestowed to members of our community who have tirelessly given of themselves to uphold our cherished values and traditions while propelling us toward elevated excellence.
Fr. Christopher and his wife, Pat, Jambor moved to Fort Worth in the summer of 1995 when the former Rector of All Saints' Episcopal Church welcomed him onto his staff. Their son, the late James Philip Jambor, joined sixth grade that year at All Saints’. Fr. Jambor, a board-certified pediatrician, also began teaching seventh grade religion at the School in 1995 at a time when all religion classes were taught by clergy and parishioners of the Church. Over the years, he also taught fourth grade religion and 12th grade medical ethics. Fr. Jambor served as Parochial Associate at All Saints’ Episcopal Church from 1995 to 2003, when he was installed as the sixth Rector following his appointment as Priest-In-Charge of All Saints' Episcopal Church in 2002.
Following his days in the classroom, he supported the development of a fulsome and robust religion curriculum taught by School clergy. He was also inspired by the founder of Godly Play Foundation, Jerome Berryman, to implement a customized Godly Play program for our youngest Saints. In addition, Fr. Jambor collaborated with Head of School, Dr. Tad Bird, to formulate our beloved Kindergarten matriculation service.
Fr. Jambor has served the School more than 24 years and has been a member of the School’s Board of Trustees for the past 17 years.
He and his wife, Pat, have experienced the journey of All Saints’ Episcopal School first hand, not only through their son, James, but also through their daughter, Ann’s, children – Christopher Patrick Jambor ’13, Sean Schneidewent ’23, and Marc Schneidewent ’24.
All Saints’ Episcopal School is a leading college preparatory day school in Fort Worth, Texas. Grounded in the Episcopal school tradition, All Saints’ offers programming of national distinction in the academic, fine art, athletic and spiritual disciplines, which brings to life our philosophy of promoting each student’s individual genius within.
