Jerrod Jasmine

We are deeply saddened to learn of the passing of one of our Ghana Education Abroad alumni, Jerrod Jasmine.

Jerrod made many beloved friends while working in Ghana in 2014 and 2015. Of his second trip to Ghana, Jerrod wrote, "I’ve done a fair amount of traveling, but this trip, particularly this program, moves the trip to Ghana to the top of my list. The trip is so immersive, giving me the opportunity to get to know the culture and history of Ghana by interacting with dozens and dozens of Ghanaians. These are some of the most caring, friendly and sincere people I’ve ever met. Going back a second time I was able to experience things more deeply, and reunite with old friends."

Jerrod will be remembered for his dedication to quality work and genuine people; his concern for justice and the environment; his tough exterior and kind heart.
