Jason Vest Memorial Scholarship

My husband, Jason Vest, was a lifelong learner. As a child, he was a voracious reader who always wanted to see and explore. His unquenchable thirst for knowledge earned him a scholarship to Drexel University which he was unable to accept. Undeterred, Jason worked to put himself through TESST College of Technology and earned an Associate degree in Computer Networking and later a position as a Messaging Architect at Enabling Technologies.

Jason was diagnosed with high-grade soft-tissue undifferentiated sarcoma on April 1, 2012, 8 months after we were married. Sarcoma proved what we already knew, that Jason would never quit fighting. His positive attitude and relentless spirit carried him through the most difficult part of his life. He never let sarcoma define him, he defined his own disease. Sarcoma took Jason away from us on June 15, 2013.

Jason was an advocate and saw the value of education; therefore it is only appropriate to sustain this energy. The scholarship will be an everlasting testament to Jason’s memory and will be awarded annually to a student at Kennard-Dale High School in Fawn Grove, PA interested in a science or technology career.
