Wounded Warriors and Veterans Education Assistance Fund
In honor of the courage and sacrifice of Sergeant Jeremy W. Feldbusch, the Wounded Warriors and Veterans Education Assistance Fund was established with an initial gift by Erik J. Rodenberg, to assist veterans, particularly wounded veterans, and their dependents in achieving their educational goals.
Sergeant Jeremy W. Feldbusch graduated from the School of Arts and Sciences in 2001 and was named a distinguished alumni in 2010. In 2004, Jeremy became the first national spokesperson for the Wounded Warriors Project.
Erik J. Rodenberg is the CEO and Founder of DRC Solutions and graduated from Katz Graduate School in 2008 with a Master of Business Administration and concentration in International Business. In addition, Mr. Rodenberg served 15 years in the U.S. Army Reserves separating at the rank captain and was eligible for promotion to major.
Endowed income of this fund shall be used to provide financial support for educational expenses that are not otherwise covered by military or other governmental benefits, based upon the following order of priority: wounded veterans, dependents of fallen or wounded veterans, and non-wounded veterans. These funds are administered by the Office of Veterans Services.
