Met Jamie Aebersold and He Gave Me a Quarter

Dr. Lou Fischer Co-Founder of JEN, and the man who funded the scholarship I received, decided to introduce me to Jamey Aebersold, whom I had already met the day before. Jamey reaches into his pocket and says, “Hey. I got something for ya.” And he gave me this quarter. That’s Duke Ellington’s portrait and his name on the piano.
