About Us

The JLew Forever Foundation was founded in memory of Joseph Matthew Lewinger after he succumbed to Covid-19 in March 2020.  Joe was known by so many for so many reasons.  He was a devoted and loving husband and father, a friend to all, but his most widely known title was teacher/coach.  When Joe was in front of the classroom, he captivated his students with his charisma and love of
learning.  He was never teaching a boring history lesson; he made history come alive for his students.  On the basketball court, Joe's love of the game and his players was palpable.  
The Jlew Forever Foundation was established by his wife, Maura and his childhood best friends, James, John, Jesse, Jimmie and Anthony to continue the educational legacy of this amazing man.  The foundation will support the two scholarships in Joe's honor; one at The Mary Louis Academy and the other at St. Joseph's College (now University).
