Charles Jellinek Endowed Fund for Water Polo

SLUH Proudly Announces the Creation of the Charles Jellinek Endowed Fund for Water Polo

St. Louis U. High has received a $50,000 donation from The Friends and Family of Charles Jellinek to establish the Charles Jellinek Endowed Fund for Water Polo. This gift marks the first-ever endowed fund created for a SLUH athletic team, and is given in memory of Charles and his unmatched and unwavering support of the Water Polo program at the school.

The Charles B. Jellinek Fund for Water Polo will honor his passion for SLUH and the sport by providing resources for this legendary athletic program for generations to come.

"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)."

- Charles Jellinek's Obituary, written by his sons Justin '13, Matt '15 and Joe '18
