Thank You!


On behalf of Cal State Fullerton and the Comm Week Task Force, we would like to thank you for participating in Comm Week 2014.

Dear Jack,

Thank you for participating in Comm Week 2014. This year’s Comm Week was a great success and it would not have been possible without your help and support. You have been a great professor to work with. I’m happy you were in constant communication with me.

I hope you had a great experience and on behalf of Comm Week we hope to have your continued support in years to come.

Mr. Mierop,

I am amazed everytime I hear you speak. You always say something that I can relate to 100%. It isn’t often that I find someone who has the same ideas about life. I love the idea that you are who you chose to be. The “Only You!” idea is what I try to live by. I am a firm believer that I am in control of myself. I do see myself as living in the “now.” Well, mostly.

I am excited for the future. Many people look back on their lives to when they were young and wish they could go back. I feel like I’ll enjoy life better in the mid game. I believe when I am in my 30s, I own my own home with my family, I have a stead[y] well-paying job that I enjoy, is where I will truly thrive. I do agree with the quote,

You can’t do anything about yesterday and

you can’t do anything about tomorrow

so why not live today.

That is definitely one I will be taking with me.

I’m at work and I was going over my notes from last night and I wanted to let you know that that was a fantastic class. Not that all your classes haven’t been great, I’ve learned more in the past few weeks then I have in most of my other classes after the full 18 weeks, but this class was especially good. You managed to fit a lot; take a lot of difficult information and make it understandable and immediately usable.

It’s refreshing to stop learning chemistry and math and just learn how to be a better human. I know my girlfriend appreciates it. Anyways, just wanted to let you know your work and effort is appreciated, and thoroughly enjoyed.

~ James

Thank you for being such a great and inspiring teacher.

It was nice seeing that you live the way that you teach. It was really a mind opening seminar. I have always heard people say that they need to change the way they think of the world and live, but I had never heard solutions until I learned them from you.

Being in that room made me feel like I am not alone and that I have control over my thoughts and actions. So thank you for teaching and thank you for making a difference in the world.

I will carry the information that I learned for the rest of my life and put it into good use.

~ Teresa

I have to tell you I really take this class to heart; I take everything very seriously.

The point is that I really enjoyed tonight’s class but did not realize it until I started driving home from school. I don’t know what it is, but when I’m in class I don’t feel so excited honestly, but I guess my subconscious must really love this stuff because I was feeling so high driving home thinking to myself I’m really going to get something out of this . . . and you have no idea what awesome feeling comes with this thought because I know I have some psych issues that I’ve been working on for the past four years and have found no hope for relief until now.

Also, please know that this is extremely out of character for me to express myself in this manner (in any matter really) to someone besides my significant other. Know that I’m really trying my hardest to break that chain and connect with others in the world. That is why I’m writing to you right now, I literally got home and immediately started typing, because if I waited a second longer I would end up convincing myself that it’s not important to share this and it’s simply not me anyway.

I feel good I did, and I also thought you would like to know.

I had a resident text me asking for your email address. Michelle, who spoke about writing a book??? She went to Teri and asked how we found you because she enjoyed the class so much! I also read in the Resident Manager’s notes that everyone seemed to really like the class. And . . . Teri also sent me a text to let me know everyone liked it!

Shit! This is the first time I’ve heard this much over a class! I am super, super happy that this has worked out! This is going to be fantastic for the residents – life changing, seriously.

Palisade HSThank you so very much for coming to talk to the students in October!! They truly enjoyed listening to your ideas, and we often reference them in class. I think some have visited your website, and they think they are pretty special to have met you.

I wish you all the best in your teaching and writing endeavors, and I thank you for your enthusiasm and zest for learning and life that you shared with my students!!

I want to thank you so much for making class super enjoyable. I am always excited to come. The discussion today on assertiveness was really helpful. I have been needing to have a serious talk with someone I just never knew how to bring it up with him. Thanks again for being such a great and funny professor!

~ Kelsey

[The workshops] have been therapeutic for me and for the most part, I go home with a light, happy heart. You have been an inspiration . . .

~ Yan

I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate your workshops, I was really down about my personal crap and after 15 minutes in your class you really made me feel a whole lot better. It’s so nice to have people like you in a world like mine, I think we should throw Prozac away and make you into pill form . . . Thanks Jack!

~ Phoenix

I just wanted to thank you again for such an amazing class. It didn’t have to be amazing, but it was. I learned so much that I can apply . . . you have really changed my life and in ways I can’t even express.

~ Rachel

. . . its like attending an educational improv.

~ Shawna

That class changed my life! I’m not an angry bitch anymore!

Your class was awesome.

~ Vani

I was talking to a Dr. I work with about you the other day, telling her how much of an impact you made on me and how amazing your class was. It’s crazy because out of all the college courses I’ve taken (which is A LOT!), yours has been the most influential and is the one that has taught me the most that I can carry with me throughout my life.  I just saw your Jack Up Your Life page. I watched a few of the videos on the website . . . awesome!
