The Jeffrey Young Memorial Foundation


Established in 2014, The Jeffrey Young Memorial Foundation (JYMF) is an effort to improve the lives of young people around the world.  Before a tragic boating accident took his life, Jeffrey lived by the philosophy Carpe Diem, or Seize the Day.  With extraordinary passion for education, health, sports, music, travel, friends and family, Jeffrey spent his time fighting to better himself and the lives of others around him.   JYMF supports organizations and scholarships that share the same philosophy and passions as Jeffrey's and that positively impact the lives of young men and women.

In the end, we only regret the chances we didn’t take, relationships we were afraid to have, and the decisions we waited too long to make.
