As I tell friends and family, I can’t sing, or write songs or poetry, but I know the business of people. With the help of my family, I started the Jana E. Pinker Memorial Foundation in April of 1999. It is my way of remembering my sister, Jana. Jana was diagnosed with a rare form of liver cancer in August of 1997. She lived another 15 full months, but passed away November 23, 1998.

In her memory, the Foundation supports charities and arts organizations, awards scholarships and provides for grants and community events. Take a moment to visit the web site. A full financial report can be found under the link for the Foundation Forum. We look forward to hearing from you and sharing the life and memory of our sister and daughter, Jana Elizabeth Pinker.
