Donor and trustee Jane Jacobsen passes away
Our hearts are heavy for Jane Jacobsen’s family. Jane passed away unexpectedly last Saturday, May 22, 2021, in Vancouver, Wash. She was a generous donor to Clark College Foundation, giving for 30 years while also establishing a Clark College Board of Trustees Scholarship in 2017. At the time of her death she was a member of Clark College’s Board of Trustees, a post she had held since 2016.
She once told us about how her education in philanthropy began with her grandmother and loaves of bread. It is a story about making the community a better place for everyone by helping others who are down on their luck. She too experienced hard times and received help from neighbors that she says “saved our lives.”
