Jackie Wolff Scholarship

Isidore Newman School and the family of Jacquelyn “Jackie” Wolff ’75 are partnering with the Jewish Federation of Greater New Orleans and the Federation’s Newcomers Incentive Program to offer up to $20,000 a year in need-based scholarships. These Newman scholarships are for the children of Jewish families who have chosen to relocate to New Orleans. They are available to students entering grades 6 through 12.

The Jackie Wolff Scholarship honors the life of Jackie Wolff, a graduate of Newman’s class of 1975. Jackie was the daughter of Leonard M. Wolff, Sr. and Frances Sontheimer Wolff, Newman’s class of ’46, and sister of Len Wolff, Jr., Newman’s class of ’69, and Sue Wolff, Newman’s class of ’71. After graduating from Newman, Jackie enrolled at Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut. Tragically, Jackie was killed by a drunk driver in Austria while spending her junior college year abroad. According to Midge Dean, a friend who knew and loved Jackie, “She was a natural, blessed with beauty, intelligence, and a sense of humor. Her energy, maturity and poise propelled her to leadership responsibilities that she fulfilled with enthusiasm. She excelled in scholastics, gymnastics – anything she undertook. More important than these qualities was an innate sensitivity that enabled her to reach out to the disadvantaged, the older generation, animals and the environment. In her short life, Jackie made a difference and touched the lives of many.”
