“Everything good I have done in my life begins with the religious training I received growing up...most of my religious training came from my time spent at Presbyterian Day School.”

Paul Tudor Jones '66 is the founder of Tudor Investment Corporation, a priavte asset management company and hedge fund. Paul made his fortune in 1987 after taking large short positions before the market crashed.

"I had the biggest financial score of my life that day and the first thing I thought of is what can I do for the least of my brothers and sisters?” To that end, Jones founded the Robin Hood Foundation, which seeks to alleviate poverty in New York City, "one of the most innovative and influential philanthropic organizations of our time,” according to Fortune. He is also active in several other philanthropic and environmental efforts. He founded Excellence Charter School, is a former chairman of the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation and currently chairs the Everglades Foundation.

Jones was recognized as Presbyterian Day School's 2012 Distinguished Alumnus.
