The Dr. Jim McLean Scholarship Fund

Dear Friends of Jim McLean,

We were all saddened by the news of the passing of our friend, Dr. Jim McLean, this January. As Jimmy would have done, we are looking to turn a negative into a positive with the Dr. Jim McLean Scholarship Fund.

I am very proud to tell you that a committee of Jim's family and friends have started this scholarship fund in Jim's name to continue his legacy of accomplishing great things and helping others. You can go to to learn more about the scholarship but the main goals of the scholarship will be as follows:

1. The scholarship will be given to a graduating senior from Jefferson Twp. High School (Jim's alma mater) who lettered in a varsity sport at Jefferson. While Jim's primary sports were wrestling and football, the scholarship team welcomes applications from all Jefferson athletes.

2. We are looking for a candidate who is attending a four year college the following year and who has a balance of strong academic and athletic accomplishments. This scholarship will be given this June and, hopefully, it can help hard-working kids for years to come.

We will be launching several fundraising efforts in the years to come but the first is via email. We are asking Jim's friends, family and colleagues to make donations at your convenience to get the fundraising off the ground.

Feel free to make donations to: Dr. Jim McLean Scholarship Fund
Send checks to:Justin McLean 38 Cambridge Road Bedminster, NJ 07921

The scholarship team consists of: Justin, McLean, Marlena McLean, Shane Force, Brian Costello, Tim Hennessey, Mike Naklicki and Mike Marchiano. Feel free to email me or if you have any questions.
I encourage you to forward this email to any friends of Jim's or anyone that might have been in contact with him during his amazing life. Anyone who went to high school, college or med school with Jim should have the opportunity to donate to this fund.
Thanks for your support.
