2. Quotables

Dr. Jason Feinstein '91

- Meet the Board of Governors — Dr. Jason Feinstein '91

"Dr. Jason Feinstein’s love for the University of Maryland began in an unlikely place: his hometown of Bellmore, New York. As a child, Feinstein ’91 spent hours playing outside in his neighborhood with kids of all ages. 'A ton of the older kids I knew went to Maryland, so I started to have an affinity for the school and the Terp mascot,' he said. 'Then after going on a few social visits to hang out with kids who were already there, it sealed the deal for me.'"
