This year's main speaker will be Jeff Julian. He has been highly successful over the last 13 years as the head coach at Rose Bowl Aquatics in Pasadena, CA. Alongside coaching his club team, Jeff is the University of Southern California Men's and Women's Assistant coach, sharing the pool deck with USC head coach and past TISCA speaker, Dave Salo.

As a swimmer, Julian was a 1996 U.S. Olympic Trials finalist in the 200m fly, finishing sixth. His eight All-American honors were highlighted by a second-place finish in the 200y fly at the 1997 NCAA Championships. He was a seven-time Pac-10 finalist, culminating with his conference crown in the 200y fly in 1997. Also in 1997, he won a U.S. Open title in the 200m fly and won a silver medal in the race while representing the U.S. at the World University Games.

Julian has been heavily involved in the swimming community for more than three decades. He has served on the Southern California Swimming Board of Directors, was the Pacific Committee Chairperson since 2006 and was a USA Swimming National Select Camp Assistant Coach. At age 39, Julian faced his biggest challenge. A healthy swimmer who had never smoked, Julian was diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer. The swimming community rallied around him and he eventually overcame his cancer. Julian is married to fellow Trojan great Kristine Quance-Julian, herself a nine-time NCAA champion and 1996 Olympic gold medalist.
