Stephen A. Jefferies
Former Jefferies Employee
The Inspiration Behind the Jefferies Family Scholarship
Following in the footsteps of his father, Boyd Jefferies, founder of Jefferies and the Jefferies Family Scholarship, Stephen Jefferies worked as a broker at Jefferies. Hard working and full of life, he loved riding motorcycles, surfing, and enjoying the world. He was close to his family, with a loving wife and daughter, Carrera.
Stephen's life was cut tragically short in 1981, when he was killed in a motorcycle accident. After the loss of his son, Boyd made a decision to honor Stephen with a special memorial. Boyd's thoughts quickly turned to education, and, hence the development of the Stephen A. Jefferies Educational Grant Program, now the Jefferies Family Scholarship.
In 2001, when Boyd passed away, the program evolved as a memorial for both. The program continues to serve Jefferies' employees and their children, embodying the memory and perseverance of these two very special men.
