Stephen A. Jakub (1952 - 2020) was a life-long educator and nature enthusiast. He served the students of Greenfield, Massachusetts for 34 years as a public school teacher and coach, and was a member of the state curriculum development team that created the Massachusetts Health Frameworks.
Following his retirement in 2010, Stephen put his passion for science and teaching to use as a volunteer, leading Conservación Panama’s science curriculum development. He was especially interested in extra-curricular science, technology, math, and engineering (STEM) for marginalized and impoverished students in remote areas of Panama (Donoso region, Mosquito Coast, Caribbean slope).
Donations to the Stephen A. Jakub Memorial Fund will support the initiatives of Conservación Panama to bring STEM-based education, equipment, and experiences to students in the most remote parts of Panama. We seek to honor Stephen’s memory by providing students with hands-on experience with science while also providing mentoring and tutoring services for students in need.
