Our annual Gala takes us downtown to the home of the 11-time World Champion Cardinals. We’ll take a look back at the successes of the past year and celebrate the J and its important role in the community.

Honoring Jennifer & Jonathan Deutsch

We’re proud to honor Jennifer & Jonathan Deutsch

For many years, Jennifer & Jonathan have been instrumental to the success of the J, lending their leadership, financial support, guidance, and time. They have each played important roles at the J – as committee leaders, program organizers, volunteers and participants. Jennifer currently serves on the board of J Associates. Jonathan previously served as Board Chair of the J with distinction. They have passed their love of J programs to their children, as well. Riley, Ethan and Tyler, from a young age, have experienced the benefits of J Day Camps, youth sports, the JCC Maccabi Games®, and many other activities. They have all devoted so much passion and time to our agency and the entire community!

We thank Jennifer and Jonathan for the impact they have made, and will continue to make, as they help guide our J toward an ever-successful future.

Sponsorship opportunities are still available – just ask us how to get involved! View our sponsorship brochure online. Or if you’d like to donate to the J scholarship fund, but may not be able to attend, please contact Staci Gerchen, 314-442-3109.
