BENEFITING: JESSICA ANN FABER FOUNDATION
Jessica was my youngest daughter. She loved theater, movies, music, and dance. The performing arts were her passion, and we share Jessica's love for the arts. It nurtured in her unlimited imagination and creativity, and she changed the lives of many who knew her. Jessica was tragically killed by a wrong-way driver under the influence of alcohol and drugs, but her memory will live on through JAFF as we fund students in their art passion to realize their dreams despite their financial limitations.
As founder and Executive Director of JAFF, I want to thank you for your interest in joining our work to empower talented students pursue their art passion.
JAFF is committed to raising awareness of the positive impact that arts education offers and funding underprivileged students so they can reach their full potential. We know the value of giving these students an opportunity to succeed in life with the benefits arts education can provide. We firmly believe that arts education strengthens problem solving and critical thinking skills, stimulates and develops the imagination and refines cognitive and creative skills. The arts teach life skills such as articulating a vision, building self-confidence & self-discipline. The arts nurture important values, including team-building skills and learning to appreciate and be aware of different cultures and traditions. The arts motivate and engage its students in learning, stimulate memory, facilitate understanding, enhance community and provide an avenue for building self-esteem. JAFF is also committed to uniting people with like-minded goals of helping others succeed, exposing artists & teachers to new people, and enhancing community by providing an avenue for building awareness of the importance for arts education.
If you are like me, there is nothing more rewarding than to help people in your community by opening the many doors of opportunity and giving them a chance to receive all the life-long benefits the arts deliver.
I welcome you to join us. Every effort contributes to realizing our overall vision and mission. Please contribute to fostering talented and motivated students with success and realizing their dreams, I encourage you to donate today! We desire to grant aspiring youth opportunities to participate, benefit, and experience their passions with involvement in the arts. This foundation will allow Jessica’s legacy to live on and to extend the life changing power of the performing arts to other students like her.
