San Francisco Thanks Jae Eiu Yi ’96 for Giving Back! Returning to the Bay Area after 11 years in Southern California, Jae works at a private equity firm called Coastwood Capital Group. Being close again to his parents and watching his nephews grow up, reminded Jae of his gratitude towards Summer Search. Inspired, Jae reached out to his friends and colleagues, told them about the impact of Summer Search in his own life and in the lives of other deserving students who have since entered the program. Inspired by Jae’s commitment to his community, his colleagues raised a staggering $2,000 for Summer Search! more >
