About The Jack Scura Fund

Jack Scura Fund is designed to recognize students with a special need who are of good standing in school and in their communities. We are a business that runs on helping others and giving chances and the Jack Scura Fund would wish to offer a $10,000 scholarship for the Fall Semester of 2024 and Spring Semester of 2025 to those with Disabilities who are incoming or, are in an Undergraduate Program.

The scholarship program is named in memory of John (“Jack”) Joseph Scura II, Esq. He was the founding partner of our firm and a true renaissance man. He treasured education putting himself through  college and law school while juggling four kids alongside his wife of 52 years Kathleen Scura. He quietly and selflessly made the lives around him better. Jack passed away on September 24, 2018. This scholarship is to carry on Jack’s dedication to education and helping others.
