    Posted February 8, 2017

    Chris Perez ’18, cartoonist for The Guilfordian, says English Professor Jeff Jeske, who died January 23 after a battle with cancer, was an inspiration to him.

    In the wake of Jeff’s passing, Chris was moved to create a portrait to pay tribute to Jeff.

    Jeff Jeske left a lasting legacy through positively influencing the lives of hundreds of students. Many of them are now reaching out, eager to celebrate the memories and honor the contributions of their beloved faculty and friend in a meaningful manner.

    In that light, a fund for the Jeff Jeske Memorial Scholarship in English and Journalism has been established to which alumni and friends can make a contribution. Make a gift online, specifying this fund in the “Other” category of the Designation section. Or, you may mail a check payable to Guilford College to Office of Advancement, Guilford College, 5800 W.
