The Julia Jaquette Memorial Scholarship
After months of valiantly fighting cancer, Julia Jaquette (age 27), on March 8, 2018, passed away from Astrocytoma, Glioma (brain cancer). Julia was one of the first members of the Green Street Housing team, where she spent four years working hands-on to develop affordable rental housing communities in Maryland and Delaware. Julia was passionate about the industry and the impact our rental housing communities had on the residents. Julia, a young, smart, fit, vibrant, strong woman, was more than just an employee of Green Street, she was our friend and she was an example of the type of woman we hope our daughters grow up to be. After Julia’s passing Green Street endowed this memorial scholarship so that, in her name, more positive impact could be made available to the families and individuals that she so passionately served during her time at Green Street.
