Roccario Braithwaite Legacy Fund

In honor of Sally and Erica, we establish this discretionary fund to support graduates of Brooklyn Jesuit Prep.

Jesuit scholastic Jake Braithwaite, SJ is descended from two highly intelligent women. Both Sally Braithwaite and Erica Roccario attended college, Rosemont College and the University of Paris, respectively. Thanks to their rich educational background, both were highly cultured women who passed intellectual curiosity onto their grandson.
