Charles Jellinek Endowed Fund for Water Polo
SLUH proudly announces the creation of the Charles Jellinek Endowed Fund for Water Polo
The common thread of Charles’ unforgettable life is best defined as his unwavering dedication and loyalty to all of his friends and family. When his sons joined the SLUH Water Polo team, Charles became the program’s most dedicated fan (even through their graduation).
