Jerry Brockey Celebration of Life @ Brockey Center, South Seattle College
Sep 25 @ 2:00 pm

The Jerry M. Brockey Student Center sits at the center of South Seattle College’s campus, where students gather to connect with each other, and the cultural celebrations of a diverse community take place.  It is fittingly named after a man who shaped a college from a vision to reality, serving as the college’s president from 1977 – 1995. Jerry Brockey passed away in March 2020. A celebration of life is scheduled for Mr. Brockey on Saturday, September 25, at 2 p.m. in the Brockey Center.

Born in 1933 on a small farm in North Dakota, Jerry Brockey eventually landed in Seattle where he built his career in education as a teacher and coach at Seattle Public Schools.  He later joined the Seattle Community College district and was appointed president of South Seattle in 1977.

Brockey was known as a passionate and tough leader, with high expectations and a legendarily firm handshake.  Brockey led the college’s growth as a premier workforce education and college transfer destination. Former colleagues described Brockey as an “egalitarian … an effective president, and a natural leader,” a “welcoming executive that created a welcoming environment for students,” and a president who was “really good at bringing people together.”

West Seattle historian and journalist Clay Eals, in remarks shared with West Seattle Blog, said, “Jerry also was a highly visible connector between the college and the rest of West Seattle, no easy feat given the college’s geographical isolation.” Eals went on to say, “He was a true force for good, worthy of admiration.”

Jerry Brockey’s legacy is ever-present at South Seattle College through the Brockey Student Center and the Brockey Endowed Scholarship, which has helped many students find financial stability so they can focus on their studies.

For more information on the Brockey Celebration of Life, call 206-234-6752.

  • What to consider when creating your Will;
  • Guardian nomination for minor children;
  • The importance of incapacity planning;
  • How wise and thoughtful planning can protect your adult children;
  • The benefits of trust planning; and
  • How you can get your estate planning done virtually from the comfort of home.
