Colby is the place where, in just four short years, Jess and Mike forged relationships that have lasted a lifetime. Both were involved in athletics—Jess in the alpine ski team and Mike in lacrosse—and have continued to support athletics after graduation, enabling Colby to hire an assistant director of competitive sports to lead a comprehensive intramural sports and club sports program.

Jess and Mike have remained deeply engaged in many aspects of the college community, with both volunteering their time as class agents for their reunions and with Jess having served on Alumni Council and now on the Board of Trustees. By naming the College in their wills, they honor an institution that has had a profound effect on their lives in many ways—after all, it’s where they met. Now, they see Colby transforming itself in ways that they never would have imagined 30 years ago. Their bequest gift will enable Colby long in the future to continue staying true to its student-centered focus.
