Amy's Birthday



Today we celebrate Amy's birthday - April 30, 1965


Please donate in her memory. Every gift will be put to use immediately to support our mission to provide Kisses of Opportunity in the form of domestic violence educational resources as well as educational scholarships to low-income students throughout the U.S.

 

Our goal is to celebrate the memory of Amy Perez and her children, Molly and Gregory and reflect her generosity of spirit, her commitment to academic excellence, and her enduring legacy as a mother and tutor. In particular, we attempt to reflect Amy’s unique way of praising her students’ success by tossing them a chocolate candy from the bowl that sat on the desk where she tutored.

 



Amy Perez


Amy Perez was an exceptional woman, whose bright blue eyes, loving smile and warm heart drew family and friends close to her from the time she was a child.  Hard-working and highly intelligent, Amy was first in her class at Haverford High School in Havertown, PA before she went on to graduate cum laude from Cornell University as a member of Phi Beta Kappa.  She continued her education at The Wharton School of Business, where she earned her MBA.  She was a rising star in the world of New York finance when she left her career at Chase Bank to stay at home and raise her two children, Molly and Gregory.

Amy was such a loving, doting mother, and she unselfishly sacrificed her needs for their well-being and happiness. Molly and Gregory were two adorable, healthy children who were just beginning to get a taste of all that life had to offer. Gregory was an athletic 8 year-old little boy who loved playing and learning about sports, especially baseball. Molly was a fashionable, 10 year-old social butterfly who was an avid reader, just like her mom.

 

​Amy eventually chose to go back to work tutoring high school students for the SAT and went on to co-found a successful college test prep organization.  She excelled in this role, and local high school students from her community in Westchester County, NY would request Amy’s services as word spread of the outstanding results her tutoring produced.
