In Memory of Winston Aarons


Winston Churchill Aarons Sr. was born on June 22, 1941. Winston, affectionately known as John, was born and raised in Kingston, Jamaica. While he was small in stature his spirit and laughter was bigger than life and filled any room he entered. Although John spent his formative years in Jamaica most of his adult life was spent in New York. But the one consistent theme throughout his life was his selflessness, commitment to service and helping others.

His passion for education was shared beyond his children but with all he encountered.

John’s house was a home for all and he had a heart of gold. His passion for education was shared beyond his children but with all he encountered. He generously contributed to many schools domestically as well as schools in Jamaica and Africa. He dedicated his time and talents to helping others and often provided refurbished computers to schools in need. John’s family knew it would most honor his legacy to ensure that his philanthropic spirt lived on by providing an opportunity for those he touched to give in the same spirit that he did.
