Alumni Update: Maria (Lanciotti) Jarecki LCHS '14
Posted on 11/21/2019
Lanciotti/Jarecki Nuptials Should you find yourself a patient at UCHealth at Poudre Valley Hospital, keep your fingers crossed that Registered Nurse Maria (Lanciotti) Jarecki is on duty. The 2014 LCHS alumna is a float nurse on the cardiac, oncology, surgical, neurological, orthopedic, and rehab units. She moved back home to Fort Collins following her 2018 graduation from Benedictine College in Atchison, Kansas.

Maria was a standout LCHS volleyballer before moving up to compete at the collegiate level for the Benedictine Ravens. Now back in Northern Colorado, she has returned to her alma mater’s home court; this time as a coach for the LCHS women’s volleyball program. Her players love her. Moreover, they’re upping their game thanks to the skills, talents, and love for the sport Maria is passing along to her players.

The next big challenge for the team is to start addressing her as “Coach Jarecki” instead of “Coach Lanciotti.” Earlier this month (Sat 9 Nov), Coach Jarecki married baseball player Matthew Jarecki who she met at Benedictine. The pair tied the knot at Our Lady of the Valley Catholic Church in Windsor, CO. Maria’s dad, Rob Lanciotti, a former Liberty Board Member, is an ordained Catholic Deacon who helped officiate the ceremony. Maria’s mom, Ruth Lanciotti, is a former Liberty TA. Her sister Elizabeth Timpe also attended Liberty, went to Benedictine, and later taught high-school chemistry at LCHS.

Other familiar faces in the wedding party included LCHS grads Evelyn Wagner, and Jessica (Schwindt) Dreiling. LCHS freshman Vincent Krapes, and Maria’s older brother Chris Lanciotti participated in the ceremony. Both Chris, and younger brother Danny also attended Liberty Common School. Go Eagles! Go Ravens!
