Building bridges: Cal’s Jordan Kunaszyk inspired by charity work in Mexico

Jordan Kunaszyk spent part of his winter break in Puerto Penasco, Mexico.

Just blocks past beachfront resorts, he dug holes for fence posts, hung drywall in a church nursery, and used smiles and broken Spanish to bring joy to children in a poverty-stricken neighborhood.

As Kunaszyk underwent what he calls a “spiritual transformation,” the leader of the Bears’ defense was born.

“He’s impressive,” Cal head coach Justin Wilcox said. “Guys like that make all of us think: ‘Maybe I should be a little better.’”

Cal is trying to drastically change the lens through which its defense is viewed, and Kunaszyk is right in the middle of the paradigm shift.
