Creating a Legacy
Our wish for us would be to have Jaime present. A Wish For Jaime is to create a legacy where we can honor her memory by supporting organizations and causes that were meaningful to her in her life. Please support in any way you can. No contribution is too small.
Jaime’s Love For Dance
In honor of National Dance Day, ORFJ is featuring one of Jaime’s greatest passions, being a dancer. Jaime’s love for dance is why we partner with organizations like Jacob’s Pillow. Please show your support by making a contribution so we may continue Jaime’s legacy.

A Wish For Jaime
Thank you to everyone who contributed to “A Wish For Jaime” GoFundMe campaign, in honor of what would have been Jaime’s 16th Birthday.
Without the generous support of individuals like yourself, we would not be able to carry on with our mission and continue to honor Jaime’s legacy.
We are close to reaching our goal, but not quite there yet! We still need your help. We are asking you to share our campaign with your family, friends, and colleagues. And perhaps, you might even consider donating again!
Together there’s nothing we can’t do! Remember, “Dreams and dedication are a powerful combination.”
First Person: Fred Guttenberg – A Dad’s Mission After Parkland
Fred Guttenberg never planned on leading a public life. He didn’t envision himself giving interviews on national news programs or announcing legislation on Capitol Hill. “I was not a politically involved person before February 14th,” Fred said. But that day in 2018, his 14-year-old daughter Jaime was one of 17 people killed by a gunman at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. Fred is now devoting his life to urgently advocating for stricter gun control and public safety laws. A native of Long Island, Fred says his Jewish upbringing instilled in him a commitment to family, service, and standing up for others. Matt Gutman, an ABC News Chief National Correspondent joined Fred on May 23, 2019 at the Center for Jewish History for a conversation on about speaking out, fighting back, and challenging elected officials to do more.
