• A TRIBUTE TO BROTHER TOM MASON

     

    With a heavy heart, I am saddened to inform you that one of our most loyal and greatest Brothers has entered the Chapter Eternal.  Brother Tom Mason of the Epsilon Epsilon Chapter at Oklahoma State University passed Monday evening, June 22, in Tulsa, Oklahoma.  Jon Thomas Mason, better known as Tom Mason to everyone, was born in Tulsa, OK on February 2, 1940.  He graduated from Edison High School in 1958.  He married his wife, Nancy, on August 7, 1965 and they resided in Tulsa while raising their 3 children.

     

    Brother Mason was a lifelong leader for our Fraternity, both in Stillwater and nationally.  Brother Mason began his Sigma Nu journey at Oklahoma State University, where he was initiated in 1959 as Epsilon Epsilon #843. While an undergraduate, he held several officer positions including a term as Commander.  He graduated from Oklahoma State then went on to obtain a law degree from the University of Tulsa.

     

    After graduation, his service began for the General Fraternity when he became a Division Commander for Sigma Nu in 1973 and served in that role on and off until 1992.  He also served on the Leadership Council which was responsible for developing the LEAD Program.

     

    His service to his chapter has been equally important and he is often referred to as “the father of Epsilon Epsilon”. He served for many years as the Chapter Advisor and has served on the Epsilon Epsilon Housing Corporation since 2005.  His exceptional dedication was honored with his induction into our Hall of Honor in 2014.  As Tom noted in his Hall of Honor induction remarks, his “love affair” with Sigma Nu Fraternity began in September 1958 when he became a candidate of the Epsilon Epsilon Chapter.  Tom’s induction speech was recorded and all are encouraged to view his moving speech via this link to YouTube:

    Professionally, Tom began his career in the Tulsa County District Attorney’s Office and then went on to work for many years for prominent Tulsa lawyer, David Sanders, Sr.  In 1993, he helped establish the firm of Carpenter, Mason and McGowan. 

     

    Tom bravely battled Parkinson’s disease over his latter years living at St Simeon just north of downtown Tulsa.  Tom said numerous times that he had a helluva wonderful life surrounded by people he respected and loved.  His wife, Nancy, is surrounded by a wonderful family and lots of friends.  Please keep Nancy, and children Whitney, Shea and Mitchell and grandchildren in your prayers.

     

    The family has requested that any gifts or memorials in honor of Tom Mason be made to the following for the benefit of the Epsilon Epsilon Centennial Campaign:

    It seems fitting to close with a quote from a fraternity song (Hi Rickety) about Brother Mason,

     

    Who am I, sir?

    A fraternity man am I!

    A Sigma Nu, sir!

    Until the day I die!

     --MESSAGE from the CHAIRMAN--

     

    • Brothers, 

       

      Thank you in advance for considering a stretch philanthropic contribution to the most exciting initiative in the modern era surrounding the Epsilon Epsilon chapter at Oklahoma State University. As you may be aware, we have a bold vision, a forward-thinking design, a comprehensive campaign, and tremendous energy for the next generation of our fraternity home at 913 W University Avenue.

       

      The budget/ goal for this transformational project is $12 million.  

       

      Your brothers on the committee chose the name CENTENNIAL CAMPAIGN given the significance of this capital initiative correlating with 2020; 100 years of our chapter being a top fraternity house on campus. 

       

      Commemorating Epsilon Epsilon as one of, if not the, top chapters in the Sigma Nu system and appreciating the significance of how this initiative compliments the beautiful and evolving OSU landscape, we are aiming for 100% of financial support from the 1800 living Chapter Alumni.  Your contribution is a key element to our house remaining a top fraternity with a long list of achievements, accomplishments, and awards. 

       

      I sincerely appreciate your difference-making involvement and look forward to the day we celebrate reaching our goal in this mission-critical campaign sustaining OSU’s most prominent chapter – Epsilon Epsilon. 

       

      This is a moment to seize history and play a role in shaping the future. The time is now.  Join us. 

       

      Sincerely and appreciatively, 

       

       

      Stan Bugh

      Chairman, CENTENNIAL CAMPAIGN

  • Love, Honor and Truth!

    The Epsilon Epsilon Chapter at Oklahoma State University was founded in 1920. In 1929, the Epsilon Epsilon Chapter built the chapter house, where the active brotherhood still resides to this day.  Since 1920 Sigma Nu has established a reputation of initiating OSU’s strongest undergraduate men. Becoming a Sigma Nu at Oklahoma State has proven to be more than just a 4 year college experience but one that lasts a lifetime. Throughout history the brotherhood has maintained close relationships, among alumni and active brothers, that demonstrates a commitment to Sigma Nu fraternity at OSU as well as nationally. It is no question that our Alumni involvement remains one of the strongest on campus as well. This is evident by our recent $2.1 million house renovation completed in 2004 made possible by their support.
