Jessie's Day PSA

Meet three extraordinary young woman. They all have something in common. They're all organ transplant recipients and Jessica Beth Schwartz college scholarship winners. Here are their stories.

About Jessie and the Scholarship:

In the past 11 years, the Jessica Beth Schwartz Scholarship Fund has given more than $90,000 in college scholarship money to 39 college-bound transplant recipients. This year's event will help even more students who have had organ transplants fulfill their dreams of attending college.

Jessica Beth Schwartz was a heart transplant recipient and Temple journalism student. Her dedication to earning her degree was cut short when at the age of 23, she passed away. In her memory, the Jessica Beth Schwartz Memorial Scholarship Fund was started to award young transplant recipients the opportunity to pursue their dreams of a higher education. All proceeds from Jessie's Day Give the Gift of Scholarship Event support this scholarship.

Faces of Organ Donation: Jessica Beth Schwartz

Jessica Beth Schwartz was able to experience 8 1/2 additional years of life because of the gift of donation. Her mother Janice Schwartz Donahue continues to keep Jessica's legacy alive by giving other transplant children an opportunity to pursue higher education.
