Honoring Jordan Weiss


Jordan Weiss, a Buckley senior and beloved member of the Buckley community, passed away on Friday, January 28, 2011, as a result of a skateboarding accident. Jordan will always be remembered for his great sense of humor, energy, loyalty, and embodiment of the Buckley Commitment.

At the request of the Weiss family, The Jordan Weiss Memorial Scholarship Fund was established to honor Jordan and help his memory live on at Buckley. As a further tribute to Jordan, the school renamed its Class of 2011 Legacy Fund "The Jordan Weiss Memorial Scholarship Fund." Click here to visit The Jordan Weiss Memorial website, a celebration of his life.

Annual awards will be granted from this financial aid endowment to students who embody the qualities central to Jordan’s character and who otherwise might not have the chance to attend The Buckley School. The first Jordan Weiss Memorial Scholarship Fund grant was made in the 2013-2014 school year to an outstanding Upper School student.
