Mark Huppe Memorial Scholarship Fund

Mark Huppe passed peacefully into Heaven on November 20, 2023, after an 18-month battle with throat cancer. Mark was a beloved teacher, coach, student, and administrator at many Kansas City Area Catholic schools including 13 years at St. James Academy. He was a member of Holy Spirit Catholic Church for over 35 years, attending 7 am Mass every Sunday in the front far left pew. Mark will be remembered for his spirit, energy, and faith. He was a lifelong runner, finishing 10 marathons in his 50’s and continuing to walk 4 miles a day up until the day before he passed. Mark showed us all the value of gratitude and kindness, with a special talent for bringing people into the fold with humor and compassion.
