Paul Jolly - President

Paul Jolly was born and raised in St. Louis, MO.  He attended St. Mary’s High School.  He graduated from Washington University in St. Louis with a BSBA in Accounting and Final Honors.  He worked for Hellmuth, Obata & Kassabaum, Inc., one of the world’s largest Architectural Design firms, for over 35 years as Project Accounting Manager for its National and International offices.  He is currently the Business Manager for St. Wenceslaus Parish, a member of the Archdiocese of St. Louis.

Paul has been involved in sports his entire life.  He started playing baseball at a young age and also participated in basketball and track during high school.  Following college, he became a player/coach for Miss Blues, a St. Louis Men’s Slow Pitch Softball Team.  His playing and coaching career spanned four decades.  During that time, Miss Blues won a number of tournaments, qualified for a number of regionals, won an ASA City Championship, and captured a National Invitational.

Paul was inducted into the St. Louis Softball Hall of Fame in 2000 as a Manager/Coach.  He has since been joined by longtime teammates Pat Lohmar and Jim Duspiwa.

Paul was elected to the Hall of Fame Board of Directors in 2001, and currently serves as President of the Board.
