Jesse Jaramillo taught creative movement and PE for 12 years at Island Park. Our community remembers Jesse as an exceptional teacher and dancer, who founded The Co-Motion Dance Company with his long-time partner, Gail Heilbron. Jesse and Gail worked tirelessly to bring dance education into our schools, in Mercer Island and throughout our state. Sadly, Jesse passed away suddenly last summer. Those who knew him miss his broad smile and generous friendship. Everyone will miss his commitment to provide students opportunities to learn dance. In his memory, our community has set up an endowment to provide dance education opportunities to Mercer Island School students. We are asking for your financial support to help build this fund and to keep Jesse’s dream alive. Tax Deductible donations may be made to FAAC/Jesse PO Box 138 Mercer Island WA 98040. Thanks for supporting Jesse’s vision for dance and healthy movement in the lives of our children.
