Jamye Wisecup was a fixture and a bright light in the emergency management community, not only in Clallam County but around the state.

To honor her memory, the Center of Excellence-Homeland Security Emergency Management will be working with Peninsula College Foundation to establish the Jamye Wisecup Memorial Scholarship/Program Endowment through the Foundation.

Wisecup was the heart and soul of emergency management in Clallam County and made an impact on many peoples’ lives.

In addition to her work with emergency management, she served on numerous local non-profit boards and was active in many community activities.

She was very dedicated to helping spread awareness and involvement in emergency management and disaster preparedness.

Her dedication to promote emergency preparedness and her genuine unconditional caring for everyone made her the exceptional woman that she was.

The focus of the Jamye Wisecup Fund will be Emergency Management/Disaster Preparedness. It will provide scholarships to attend the Homeland Security Emergency Management (HSEM) Certificate or Associates Degree Program at Peninsula College.

Program support could be utilized for the HSEM Program, which is managed centrally at Pierce College in Lakewood for all seven of the HSEM Programs, including Peninsula College.

Fund specifics
