The 4 Jake Foundation was created by his family to honor the memory of Jake and to provide better opportunities for children within this community in his name. Each year there will be one student chosen from the Briarcliff Manor School District to receive a scholarship in Jake’s memory. This year the 4 Jake Foundation will award one $5000 scholarship to one deserving student who excels academically and athletically and who maintains an exemplary record throughout their 4 years in the Briarcliff school district and in the community.
In May of 2018, the 4Jake scholarship was awarded to John Gross. John excelled on both the soccer and baseball fields at Briarcliff high school and was very near the top of his class. John will be attending Duke University in the fall and we congratulate him on his exemplary high school career.
