More Info

Jonathan became heavily involved with extra curricular activities at the University at Albany community and never stopped. He provided significant leadership to the Orientation Office, Residential Life, Gender & Sexuality Resource Center, and Liberty Partnerships Program. He loved working with students, being a mentor, and making a difference in their lives. He was a giver and volunteered his time to help others, where he even skipped his own graduation in order to go to Haiti and teach students. He was always willing to learn and grow even if it meant stepping outside of his comfort zone. His accomplishments included being a fellow for the capital region new leaders council, serving on the board of education graduate students and many more. Jonathan impacted countless lives of students and faculty just through his unique personality. His enthusiasm and passion for changes in education and social justice left a print everywhere he went. He recently graduated with his Master in Education and was ready to change the world. 

To remember his giving spirit, we are developing a scholarship that will give less privileged students the opportunity for extra funds to get them through their academic career. Let's come together to create this scholarship in his name and allow his legacy and the amazing impact he had on us to last forever!

All donations will go solely towards funding a scholarship at the University of Albany in Jonathan's name.
