In Memory of Kurt Wimmer

Our dear friend and board member, Kurt Wimmer, cared deeply about young people in this community.

We are all better for having known and worked with him. He was a kind, compassionate, and unendingly supportive advocate for students and teachers across the District, whose efforts made this a truly brighter and more just place.

We’re so grateful for his and his family’s generosity with us, having asked for donations to 826DC in lieu of flowers.

For everyone also missing Kurt today, we see you and we’re with you. He was a sensational person. We hope it brings you some comfort to know that Kurt’s impact will live on in this community for years to come.
