Kiva Lending Team: Kiva Jon Silengo
We loan because...
We remember a good man with good ideals.
Jon Silengo taught college in California, always generous and giving to his students in that capacity; ran a custom photographic studio in Colorado, personally acquainted with such giants as Ansel Adams; and was a chemical engineer helping to develop innovative photographic processes. Jon died in 2011 after almost two decades of struggle with a rare condition called Multiple System Atrophy, also known as Shydrager. To help shed light on this rare disease, Jon’s brain tissue has been donated to the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida, in hopes of developing a cure. Jon may be gone but in his memory we strive to help others improve the quality of their lives.
