Jacob will forever be remembered for his love of soccer and nick name, "JK". He was a one of kind kid, who had his own style, and wasn't afraid to "tell it like it is", which made him so funny.
One of the most treasured memories that Jacob has left us with is the laughter he brought to everyone around him. He is greatly loved and missed by all of his family and friends, and will remain in the hearts of all of those who were lucky enough to know him.
In Jacob's memory, the trust has awarded a total of $410,000 in scholarships to 75 students since the first scholarship was awarded in 2016.
This fundraiser, as all of our annual fundraisers benefit students of Boyertown Area Senior High who plan to further their education, All proceeds from our events directly fund the Jacob Karnchanaphati Memorial Award, so that we can continue to help students every year.
The Jacob Karnchanaphati Memorial Trust is a 501 (c)(3) organization.
