In Memoriam

New York Junior Tennis and Learning extends its deepest sympathies to friends and family who have passed away due to complications of COVID-19.

Arlene Stringer-Cuevas
Arlene was the loving wife of long time NYJTL Board Member Carlos Cuevas. Arlene devoted her life to her family, public service and education, and was a staunch supporter of NYJTL programs, especially in the Bronx. She worked with Carlos to help establish the Bronx Open, now played at the Cary Leeds Tennis and Learning Center in Crotona Park. She will be deeply missed by the NYJTL family.

Juliette K. Eastman
Julie was the adoring mother of NYJTL Executive Committee Board Member Polly Scott.  Julie was 97 years old, and described as a lifetime learner and passionate advocate of tennis, playing the sport well into her eighties.  Born in Brooklyn, Julie’s inquisitive nature kept her eternally joyous and young-at-heart.  She will be dearly missed, and her family is preparing for a gathering to honor her legacy as soon as safely possible.
