About the donors
The family of Ayodele Jegede established this scholarship to celebrate the life of their son and brother, and honor his memory. Ayodele graduated from the College of Arts and Sciences with degrees in philosophy and political science. He earned an M.A. in international relations from Brown University and worked briefly at U.S. Bank Cincinnati before proceeding to Chicago-Kent College of Law, where he focused on tax law. He was only one semester away from graduating when he passed away in December 2011 at the age of 29. His JD was conferred on him posthumously in May 2012. Ayodele lived up to his name, which in Yoruba means “Joy.”
