THE JON GESTL ENDOWMENT FUND

The Nurse Anesthesia Program at Rosalind Franklin University has established an endowed fund in memory of Jon Gestl. Jon was a passionate anesthesia provider and a 2017 RFU nurse anesthesia alumnus. He was a strong advocate for CRNAs and worked on both the state and federal level with legislators to promote nurse anesthesia practice. Please join in making a gift to this fund in Jon’s name. This is a profound way to keep his memory and dedication alive. Once the fund reaches the goal amount it will make student awards annually.
