Morse Fellows

Morse College is a vibrant community. We would love to count you among us. The Fellows meet a few times per semester at the Head of College’s house, to interact with friends from all parts of the University and from the broader community. Many play the role of Advisor for a student or two. We extend invitations to student functions such as performances and college-wide social events, welcome participation at intramural sports, provide dining privileges in the college at lunch or dinner, all so you can meet with students, faculty and friends. Please join us - we welcome you!

Wayne Escoffery

Lecturer, Yale School of Music & Director of Jazz Ensembles


2014 & 2020 Downbeat Critics Poll Winner and Grammy Award winning tenor saxophonist Wayne Escoffery is one of the Jazz world’s most talented rising stars and in-demand sidemen. Since 2006 he has been mostly associated with trumpet master Tom Harrell after securing one of the most coveted gigs in jazz: a frontline position in Harrell’s working quintet.
For the past decade, Escoffery has toured the globe with the trumpeter, recorded seven CDs with The Tom Harrell Quintet and co-produced four of those releases. He has also been a member of The Mingus Dynasty, Big Band and Orchestra since 2000 and has made several recordings with the group. He has since become one of the musical directors of the group. Over the years he has recorded and performed internationally with the who’s who in Jazz including Ron Carter, Ben Riley, Abdulah Ibrahim, Eric Reed, Carl Allen, Al Foster, Billy Hart, Eddie Henderson, Rufus Reid, Wallace Roney, and Herbie Hancock just to name a few. Escoffery leads his own groups which tour internationally and has made several highly acclaimed studio recordings with said groups. His current working quartet features pianist David Kikoski, bassist Ugonna Okegwo, and drummer Mark Whitfield Jr. The group has released several albums, the latest being “Like Minds” on the Smoke Sessions Records label. Escoffery is also a founding member of a collaborative group called Black Art Jazz Collective which is comprised of fellow rising star musicians of his generation and is dedicated to celebrating African American Icons through originally composed music.

Andrew Esposito

General Surgery Resident, Yale School of Medicine


I am originally from Ledyard, CT which is an hour up I-95N in south eastern Connecticut. I graduated from Yale University in 2012 with a B.S. in Molecular Cellular and Developmental Biology (MCDB) and was actively involved in the Morse Community as the manager of the Morsel.  I was a member of the Cross Country and Track teams as a middle distance runner. After graduating I worked for a year as a medical assistant for an ENT in Stamford, CT before participating in the Advanced Core in Medical Science Post-Baccalaureate Program (ACMS) at the Lewis Katz School of Medicine (LKSOM) at Temple University in Philadelphia, PA. I matriculated to LKSOM in 2014 and was heavily involved with the student government as President of the Class of 2018 for all four years. During medical school, my research focused on Breast and Colon Cancer and I participated in the U.S. Navy Health Professions Scholarship Program. I graduated from LKSOM in May 2018 with an M.D. and as a Lieutenant (now inactive reserves) in the U.S. Navy. I began general surgery residency at Yale-New Haven Hospital in June of 2018 with plans to become a Surgical Oncologist following my military commitment.
