Live Like Sam

Ron Jackenthal

The Winter Sports School’s annual beach volleyball fundraiser is this weekend. This year the school will raise funds for an organization that honors the memory of a former Winter Sports School student.

Winter Sports School student Jack Schaede says that this year the Student Council decided to fundraise for an organization with direct ties to Park City.

Ron Jackenthal joins the show. Ron is the father of Sam Jackenthal, a wonderful young man, an accomplished skier and inline rollerblader and who left this world far too soon in the fall of 2015. To celebrate his son and the way Sam lived Ron founded and will talk about the foundation's mission: to empower the positive personal development of young athletes through educational programs and services, community-based partnerships, and merit and need-based scholarships.
