Jordan Lindsey's Gentle Soul Fund

Jordan Lindsey is a cherished daughter and awesome big sister. She was a devoted girlfriend, hardworking employee and motivated student. She was killed by a shark while snorkeling during a family vacation in the Bahamas in June 2019. When her father was asked to describe Jordan, he called her “a gentle soul”. Jordan Lindsey’s Gentle Soul Fund is created in memory of Jordan to help support and enrich the lives of other gentle souls.

Jordan loved animals, big and small. She considered herself a mom to our dog Hogan. Jordan Lindsey’s Gentle Soul fund will be used in part to help animals in need as well as organizations that work to save and rescue animals.

When Jordan was a little girl, her mother was involved in a philanthropic organization which raised money to help underprivileged families in the community. She enjoyed helping her mom make dinner for people living in battered women’s shelters and dropping off gifts for kids in foster care. Jordan continued that work in high school and college, helping out at homeless shelters and soup kitchens. Jordan Lindsey’s Gentle Soul Fund will be a source of help to children and families in need.

Jordan had a concern for the environment and was an advocate for keeping our beaches and community clean. A portion of this fund will support organizations that work towards these goals.

Jordan attended Loyola Marymount University after transferring from Santa Monica City College. She was an enthusiastic communications student who was considering studying to be a veterinarian. She loved LMU and was an active Tau Sigma Honor Society member and participated in LMU’s Entrepreneurship Society. She worked as a communications assistant for the LMU Frank R. Seaver college of Science and Engineering, which she thoroughly enjoyed. Jordan was also a student researcher with CURes, LMU’s Center for Urban Resilience and was really enjoying being involved in researching coyotes in urban areas. Because of her enthusiasm for Loyola Marymount University, Jordan Lindsey’s Gentle Soul Fund will provide a scholarship to a motivated, hard working young woman transferring to Loyola Marymount University.

We are pleased to announce that Xavia Janisse has been awarded Jordan Lindsey’s Gentle Soul Fund Scholarship in the amount of $2,000!  This scholarship was made available to female Loyola Marymount rising seniors who transferred to LMU from another college.  We read through some fantastic applications and wish that we could grant an award to each applicant.  Xavia’s application really shined through.  She transferred from El Camino College and has maintained a 4.0 GPA.  She is majoring in psychology with a minor in African-American Studies.  We were intrigued by her commitment to participate in and contribute to social justice through the field of psychology in order to promote mental and physical health, as well as social mobility, throughout urban underserved communities.  Xavia has a passion for service and leadership and chose LMU in part because of the services and co-curricular programming offered.  Congratulations Xavia!
