"I wanted to extend my heartfelt thanks to you for taking the time to speak to our youth. The valuable insights and perspectives you shared with our young people were truly inspiring.

Your talk was both engaging and informative, and it left a lasting impression on everyone who attended. The feedback we received from the participants was overwhelmingly positive, and it's clear that your words have had a profound impact on them.

Your willingness to share your time and expertise with our program participants is greatly appreciated. We couldn't have asked for a better guest speaker, and we are looking forward to your return in the spring.

Once again, thank you so much for your contribution to our program."

"On July 13th, 2023, I attended a financial literacy class that was geared towards our young males in our mentoring group. I thought it was well organized and I knew it was effective by the questions our mentees were asking. I feel this topic is so important to expose our youth to financial literacy. Mr. Law's examples and definitions grabbed the attention and at the end of the evening reinforced the lessons by giving them an exercise to discuss with their parents. To me sharing this knowledge will plant seeds in them to blossom in the years to come. Keep providing your technical wisdom for our youth to prosper!"

“I would like to thank you and your foundation, the Jamaur Law Foundation immensely for the priceless amount of financial Information that you provided me and my peers as rising Juniors in high school during our internship.

I have been applying all of this information in my day-to-day life and it has assisted me in getting a 760+ Credit Score in just 2 years with no prior credit history. I opened a Roth IRA at the age of 18 that I consistently contribute to, as well as other brokerage accounts that help me to pay for college, which I pay for. 

I can not begin to thank you for all the foundational knowledge that you instilled into me during your brief but concise sessions, that I have applied in other aspects of my life such as my small businesses, teaching and assisting people how to match themselves with the right credit card, how to manage a credit card, etc.”

“The bulk of what I did with Jamaur was similar to what I do in my day job, but I strove to put on a different hat when approaching the work – thinking about Jamaur’s organization and how best to reach his audience. Most importantly, I got to know Jamaur personally, which helped me give voice to his vision through his organization’s materials. I hope that all of us were able to contribute in some small way to help Jamaur attain his vision.”
