About the Fund

“I’ve learned a valuable lesson. Nothing in life is perfect, you must make the best of what you have.” – LISA BJORK, 1987

Lisa was an honor student who graduated third in her class from Jupiter High School and who planned to pursue a career in communications and journalism with a minor in law at the University of Miami. She was a member of the National Honor Society, Jupiter High School band, color guard and involved in many other school activities. She was voted “Most Likely to Succeed” in her senior year by her fellow classmates. Lisa was killed instantly by a drunk driver just one week after her 18th birthday.

As Lisa said, “Make the best of what you have!”
