2020 Allaby Award Winner, Donald Jarnagin, O.D.


On March 2, 2019 we said goodbye to our friend and longtime supporter, Dr. Don Jarnagin. Don joined his first DOCARE trip in 2007 and participated almost annually from that point on. He was an optometrist and an educator and over the years, he examined, treated and improved the sight of thousands of patients both in the United States and abroad. His world was one filled with laughter that was as infectious as it was uplifting and his jolly approach to life drew people to him. Those who met Don came to respect and love him for his generosity, selflessness and sense of humor. Don peacefully passed while doing what he loved…. serving our community in Guatemala.
