· From Rich Wilson, Head of School: With deep sorrow I report the passing of Jaden Woodard ’18. Many of you will recall that Jaden had a heart transplant just before enrolling as a freshman in 2014. Though no one knew him, the Upper School students, teachers and parents rallied around Jaden and his family. The football team all signed a jersey for him. The Student Senate visited him as did many others. During his recovery he was Skyped into his classes. Jaden became an active member of our school community, graduated, and went on to Ohio State for his college education. You can read more about his miraculous journey on page 28 of the Winter-Spring 2015 edition of the Summit Magazine. Arrangements are pending. In the meantime, if you care to send a card to Chris and Betty, their address is: 631 E. Mitchell Avenue, Cincinnati, OH 45229. Please keep them in your prayers as well as Jaden’s siblings: Bry ’21, Aniya ’22, and Sasha ’26.
Condolences – Comments and Reactions.

My heart is broken to hear this news! Jaden had an internship last summer in NYC! I keep feeling thankful he had so many amazing experiences living in the big Apple! His joy every single time I saw him will be how I’ll remember him forever! RIP Jaden. Thank you for brightening my life!Caroline Kist Melson wrote
I took this pic on 5/25. He was so excited for his Bears! Every time I see Justin Fields play I’ll picture Jaden smiling
