Jesse and Judith Thompkins launched the Jesse Thompkins III Foundation for Young People in the Arts in memory of their son, a young film maker, who died on August 3, 2008 in a traffic-related accident in Brooklyn, New York. As an aspiring filmmaker/screenwriter, Jesse strived to find a balance between his creative pursuits and his financial limitations. The mission of the foundation is to provide financial grants to young artists to help them find this balance between art and money so they can focus on their creative goals.

An active athlete, Jesse was training to run in a marathon as a way of raising funds to help finance his next movie. So as a special way to mark his birthday this year, Oct. 26th, and raise donations for the foundation, we're participating in the Atlantic City Marathon (Oct. 17th) in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

We are honored to have Jamal White, a childhood friend of Jesse's, as our runner.
