Special Notes This scholarship was created in 2007 in memory of Jennifer Alexander, a 2006 UW-Eau Claire graduate with a bachelor's degree in finance. Jennifer died suddenly from a heart condition while working out near her home in Minneapolis, MN. This scholarship reflects Jennifer's passion for her work, sports and friends, her determination to succeed and to do the best in any endeavor she undertook. She had a vibrant personality, and was able to talk to anyone. Her smile made you feel welcomed. Jennifer's parents, Diane and Harry, siblings Matthew and Melissa and fiancé, Curt Mayenschein (a 2007 graduate), want this scholarship to be a lasting tribute to Jennifer and her short, but meaningful life.
Thank You The recipient is encouraged to send a thank you note to Diane and Harry Alexander, in care of the UW-Eau Claire Foundation.
