A NOTE FROM LISA CHANIN HEDGEPATH (Class of 1980)
 
JFK Family
The recent news of Leon Cooper’s passing has shaken us to our collective core. At this stage of our lives, whether it’s age, illness, or tragedy, we will continue to face the loss of our peers. In response, our collective alum community is starting a new initiative.
 
We’ve set up an ongoing GoFundMe Page to establish a fund so that we can extend our collective acknowledgements to the families of our friends who have passed away. We encourage you to donate today and throughout the year.  You can find out more on the Home page of this website.
 

If you feel so moved to act ASAP, we can send a card and flowers to Leon’s family.

We thank you in advance.
