Distinguished SCCO Alumnus and Donor, Dr. Jarnagin, Dies


The Southern California College of Optometry at Marshall B. Ketchum University is sad to share that SCCO alumnus, Donald E. Jarnagin, OD, ’70, died earlier this month.

Dr. Jarnagin’s distinguished career includes serving as President of both the Arizona and American Optometric Associations. He has also been recognized as "OD of the Year" by the Central Arizona Optometry Society, the Arizona Optometric Association, and the Great Western Council of Optometry. In 2014, SCCO honored Dr. Jarnagin with the Circle of Vision Distinguished Individual Philanthropist Award (pictured above: Dr. Kevin L.

He was a caring doctor and his SCCO family will miss him greatly.
