Celebrating the life and legacy of Fred Hearns



The Tom Joyner Foundation would like to pay respects to Mr. Fred Hearns. Hearns passed away on Friday, May 16, 2014, at the age of 65. He leaves a legacy that was filled with dedication to his alma mater, an advocate for higher education, and an entrepreneur.

Hearns served as a faithful alumnus upon graduating from Jarvis. From May 2003 until May 2014, he served as a trustee of the Jarvis Christian Collage Board of Trustees. He also served as Secretary of the Board.

Hearns knew the importance of higher education and it was displayed in the way he lived his life. He was no stranger to the Tom Joyner Foundation and was instrumental in helping with previous campaigns for Jarvis.

Hearns was a friend of many and will be deeply missed.
