Name: Chris Bomar

Name in High School: Chris Bomar

Current City/State: Hubbard, OR (just outside of Portland)

Current Occupation: General Manager/District Manager for multiple buffet restaurant locations

Single/Married/Other: Was married for 11 years, divorced. Currently in a 12 year relationship with Wendy Reznicsek,(class of ’89).

Kids: Two Kids, one of each. My daughter Keyana is 20… Holy cow 20 for pete’s sake, and my son Jacob is 14.

Pets: Sadie the wonder dog, and sophie the gender confused cat.

What H.S. group, club, sports or activities were you involved in?: Was always kind of a stand alone guy…

What is your favorite high school memory?: Open campus. Just something about cutting out around 4th period and calling it a day. I remember one day in particular skipping with Brian Basham and Pat Leslie to go to some snowboard shops in Spokane and hearing the entire Bon Jovi : New Jersey album for the first time. Pretty much became the soundtrack of my youth.

Miss anything about those days?: Only everything. Today I get to live vicariously through my kids as I coach their teams and guide them through their own high school/post high school experience.

Military Service/College/Other: Spent some time with the mudville 9 does that count for anything?

What have you been doing since June, 1990?: I get to call myself a triathlete these days, having finished 2 and working on my next two this season. Next on the bucket list is a marathon, then maybe sky diving. It’s hard for me to reconcile stepping out of a perfectly good airplane though. I’m also toying with the idea of becoming a chef and coming home to open someplace not owned by Duane Haggadone.

Significant Achievements?: Became part owner of my store in Oregon City a few years back. Finished 2 triathlons. Raised two incredible kids (almost an empty nest-er and I’m not even 40 yet).

Places you’ve traveled?: Boston, Atlanta, all over Washington, Oregon, and Idaho. Nope Lena, you don’t win the award for the least traveled person. Sorry.

Anything else you want to share?: Over the years I’ve learned just how much every one of you meant to me. Looking through the yearbook I recognize each and every name and can put a face… a young face… with each. You may not have known me, or known me well, but I always thought of you all as friends. I look forward to seeing everybody in July.
