About James Volpe

James Volpe was a player for the Jackson Memorial Varsity baseball team who passed away in an auto accident May 13, 2011. He was really an amazing young man who truly was taken before his time. His dedication to baseball really stood out among the rest.

From the age of 3 years old, James’s character began to mold to cast him into the great and dedicated player that he was. Ever since then he always was looking for improvement and was ready for any obstacle that came his way. From his very first years as a YMCA player to his very last as a Jackson Jaguar and all in between including; Rampage, Holbrook, and other travel teams, James continued his love of baseball with strong devotion. Academically, James was a smart, strong willed kid who truly worked to the best of his abilities, and his grades that followed reflected his hard work.

Our Mission

The James Volpe Foundation mission is to support young members of the community reach their highest potential in education and sports through scholarships and other financial support that otherwise might not be afforded. Through the Foundation, we also extend our support to bereaving families by providing resources to assist them through their time of need.
