The Legacy of Jonathan Tarr
The Jonathan Tarr Foundation was established in 2001 in memory of Jonathan Tarr who died in a tragic auto accident. He was only 17 and would have been a high school Senior. He attended a Continuation High School offering alternative education curriculum. Jonathan was employed as a part-time courtesy clerk at Von’s Companies Stores through a school sponsored Work/Study for Credit program.
He danced Hula and had a love for the ocean and surfing. Jonathan was a competitive soccer and lacrosse goalie. However, the extracurricular activities alone did not define this special young man who had great potential but did not live long enough to fulfill his dreams.
Jonathan's legacy now lives on through the Windows of Opportunity Scholarships which are provided to middle to underserved students not usually targeted for academic assistance with post secondary education.
