Bill Jacox Memorial Scholarship

  • Bill_J_top_group_pic_.jpg

Hello Friends, 
In April 2021, we lost a dear friend, colleague, and adventure partner, Bill Jacox. He was a beautiful soul who gave tremendous energy and heart to his wife Sunny, their two children Alex and Serena, and to thousands of others whose life he impacted in his 49 years on the earth, through the outdoor and experiential learning. For the last 8 years Bill drove up almost every weekend in the winter to take Alex and Serena skiing at Kirkwood to share his passion for the outdoors. He coached Alex’s mountain bike team and organized countless events in nature for family and friends to camp, bike and explore the wild world. He brought this same spirit and heart as he played and worked with many of us over the years at Outward Bound, Semester at Sea, Adventure Associates, UC Irvine, and Alameda County.  He was a thoughtful and passionate facilitator and teacher to all of us. You can read the full story of Bill’s tremendous and impactful life here. 

In honor of Bill, I am establishing the Bill Jacox Memorial Scholarship Fund at Outward Bound California so that his legacy in outdoor education will remain strong for youth who might not be able to access the outdoors because of financial constraints. Thank you for honoring Bill’s life through giving to others. 

Kind Regards,
