John Morris Memorial Fund

John Morris Memorial Fund

 
 

The OCPS Family and the Greater Orlando community lost a visionary leader whose impact will be felt for years to come.  John Morris last served as the Chief Facilities Officer for Orange County Public Schools.  The children in OCPS schools today benefit from the commitment he embodied: that each and every child should have a well-built, cost-efficient, green building in which to learn.  His calming influence will be sorely missed.

Chair Teresa Jacobs stated "One thing you could count on John, if you asked him a question, you were going to get an honest answer. And, you could take whatever promises he made to the bank.  He was genuine, sincere, he was kind, he was gentile, he was authentic and incrediably dedicated to this district."

Former School Board Chair Bill Sublette said, “John was brilliant at his job, was kind and patient with everyone he came into contact with, never uttered an ill word of anyone, and was simply a very good man.”

To honor John’s memory, a Memorial Fund has been established to support causes that were near and dear to his heart. 

First, John believed in the efforts of our Career and Technical Programs at our Technical Colleges that taught students to work in the building construction programs.  He was an advocate for more plumbers, electricians and carpenters, and understood the need for such highly-skilled workers. Gifts made in his memory will help support CTE programs.

Second, John saw and was touched by the struggles our homeless children endure to come to school and have the necessary supports to be successful. He often made contributions to our Homeless Education team and believed in the potential of every child to succeed. Gifts made in his memory will also support OCPS efforts for homeless students.

Gifts made in his memory will help ensure John is remembered for years to come.

Because your gift will help with needs important to John here at OCPS, contributions made to the Foundation for OCPS in memory of John are considered 100% tax deductible.
