Since 2013, the Jimmy Porter Memorial Scholarships a way for the Jaguars to keep

alive the memory of Jimmy Porter, a 15-year-old Midget who passed away in

August of 2012. As an organization the Joliet Jaguars have decided to change the

name of the scholarship to the Jaguar Memorial Scholarship. The decision was

made because in recent years past members, family members, coaches and

others involved with the Jaguars have also passed away. In addition to the

scholarship awards, the Jaguar Midget team will play a memorial game dedicated

to Jaguars who have passed away. At this game the scholarship winners are

announced and presented the Jaguar Memorial Scholarship Certificate on the ice

prior to puck drop. The game day will also have raffle items, 50/50, T-Shirts for sale

and various other items in which all proceeds go to future Jaguar Memorial

Scholarship winners.

The winners of the scholarship are selected by a committee evaluating the

contents of the applicant's submission. The application would include letters of

recommendation from a teacher, coach or counselor, report card, character

reference letter, personal essay as well as any community service

performed, involvement within the club organization and volunteering with the club

programs. The scholarship winners will be officially announced and honored at the

November Jaguar Board Meeting.

Any money raised from raffles, donations, T-Shirt, etc. 100% of the proceeds go

directly towards the Jaguar Memorial Scholarship Funds for winners.

This year the Jaguar Memorial Game will be on a Saturday on January 7, 2023.

During the game there will be Raffle tables,50/50, Vendor Tables, T-Shirts for sale

and a Chili Cook-Off with all proceeds to the Jaguar Memorial Scholarship Fund.
