District mourns the loss of alumnus Jack Jakubek

on May 30, 2016

Dear Monroe-Woodbury community members,

We were deeply saddened to learn of the death of one of our former students, Jack Jakubek, who graduated from Monroe-Woodbury High School in 2012. Jack died Saturday, May 28, in a swimming accident on Cape Cod.

Jack is perhaps best remembered for being a star member of the high school swim team, and he continued his swimming career at SUNY Cortland.

Counselors will be available when students and staff members return to school on Tuesday for those individuals who are in need of extra support.

Our hearts, thoughts and prayers go out to Jack’s family and friends at this difficult time. 


Elsie Rodriguez
Superintendent of Schools
