Jazz for Jay

The Terry Jay Phillips Memorial Box

Jay Phillips, former dean of the College of General Studies and a longtime faculty member, dedicated more than 24 years to excellence in education at The University of Texas at Brownsville. He was committed to his students, his colleagues and the university. Music was his passion and an integral part of his zeal for life. Jay was a trombone player with the award-winning One O’Clock Jazz Band at UTB for more than 10 years. There is no more appropriate tribute to remembering Jay than in the new Arts Center on his beloved campus.

Join the UTB campus community in commemorating the lifetime service of Terry Jay Phillips by providing a gift to Jazz for Jay. Your tax deductible gift will be used for the naming of box seating in the Performance Hall. Gift levels are listed below and can be arranged through payroll deduction extended over a five-year period.
