Jack Desha Witt Education Endowment Fund

Established 1991

This endowment was created by a bequest received from the estate of Jack Desha Witt (1907-1990) as a memorial to his father Dr. John D. Witt (1874-1938).

Dr. Witt was a physician and surgeon who practiced in Aurora during the early 1900’s.

The Jack Desha Witt Education Fund provides income to Aurora students entering a premedical course of study, including the field of nursing.

Mr. Witt chose the Foundation as a meaningful and permanent way to honor the memory of his father.
