Erin R. and J. Jeffrey Duncan Endowed Scholarship in Accounting

Mr. Jeffrey Duncan graduated from Wichita State University in 1992 with a Bachelor of Arts in accounting and again in 1993 with a master's in accounting. As the chief financial officer for Dean and Deluca, Mr. Duncan was involved with the School of Accountancy Advisory Council and had a passion for WSU and its students. He was a devoted husband, father and co-worker. Mr. Duncan also was an avid Shocker fan, which is a love he passed on to his five children, Morgan, Hannah, Michael, Joseph and David. His wife, Ms. Erin Duncan, established the Erin R. and J. Jeffrey Duncan Endowed Scholarship in Accounting to honor her husband's memory and to continue his belief in the power of education following his death in 2004.
