Longtime UArts Trustee Jill Felix Colton Passes Away

September 19, 2013

We are sad to report that longtime Board of Trustees member Jill Felix Colton passed away on Monday, September 16, 2013, at the age of 69.

A trustee since 2002, Jill brought passion and a dynamic presence to the Board. She was always willing to share her time and good counsel generously, and her commitment to our students and to the mission of the University was inspiring. She will be deeply missed.

A memorial service is scheduled for Friday, September 20 at noon at the Perelman Theater at the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts (300 South Broad Street, Philadelphia).

Her family has established the Jill Felix Colton Memorial Scholarship at the University of the Arts to honor her long service as a trustee and her contributions to Philadelphia and its creative community.

Donations may be mailed to the Advancement Office at 320 South Broad Street, Philadelphia, PA 19102, or made online at uarts.edu/donatenow (select "The Jill Felix Colton Memorial Scholarship Fund" from the drop-down menu).
