The Jonathan Downey Scholarship

jonathan downey
In 2012, two months after graduating from Palomar College with a degree in Media and Communications, Jonathan Downey died suddenly of an undiagnosed heart condition. He was only 22, but in that short life, he touched the hearts of everyone he met. He would light up the room with his giant personality and was always willing to help or give one of his famous big hugs. He was loved by everyone and will be forever missed.

This money will be used as an endowment to benefit students in the Media Studies Department. It’s a scholarship that Downey would be proud of.
