Firefighter Jason Karwhite Memorial Scholarship

Bellingham/Whatcom County

Firefighters Benevolent Foundation


The Firefighter Jason Karwhite Memorial Scholarship honors the memory of Bellingham/Tukwila firefighter paramedic Jason Karwhite.

Jason’s life came to a tragic end on September 27, 2014 as a result of a motorcycle accident, leaving behind his wife Sandy and children Gage & Georgia.

Like many people, Jason was determined to make the world a better place; his life was characterized by friendship, leadership, and community involvement.

Jason’s life was dedicated to children, families, education, and public service. His commitment to them was passionate and generous, but carried out quietly and politely. Whatever he was doing, it always seemed that it was in some way helping others.

This memorial scholarship honors his memory-his open mind and kind heart, the concern he showed for others, and his passion and curiosity in life.

Mail or deliver completed application form and required documents to the address above -postmarked no later than January 30, 2018. If hand delivered “received stamped” by the end of the business day.
