Schwarz Family and Friends Cancer Research Fund
Jeff Schwarz was a Hoosier through and through. He was born and raised north of Indianapolis and met his wife Jill during their time as undergraduates at IU Bloomington. They are both proud IU alumni, with Jeff graduating with an undergraduate degree in economics (Phi Beta Kappa) in 1994. Jeff was a member of Phi Gamma Delta fraternity and is beloved by his many brothers. Jeff’s daughter Madison is also an IU alumna who earned an undergraduate degree in marketing from the Kelley School of Business in 2022, and his son Andrew attended IU his freshman year.
In 2019, Jeff and Jill joined the IU Simon Comprehensive Cancer Center’s Development Board and began generously supporting IU cancer research. Their family has endured the loss of multiple loved ones to cancer, and in November 2022, they were shocked when Jeff was diagnosed with glioblastoma, an aggressive and difficult-to-treat brain cancer.
