Wilpon played baseball at the University of Michigan until an arm injury cut short his career, but a scholarship grant enabled him to continue attendance, Wilpon and his wife, Judy, of Locust Valley, NY, earned Bachelors of Art degrees from U-M in 1958.

The Irene and Morris B. Kessler Presidential Scholarship Fund is named in honor of the parents of Judy Kessler Wilpon, Mickie Kessler Kivel, and Bonnie Kessler Dropkin. Their father, Dr. Morris Kessler, emigrated to the U.S. from Romania with his family when he was 12 years old. Although he did not speak a word of English when he arrived in the U.S. he earned his undergraduate degree from Northwestern University at age 19 and then earned a degree in dentistry.

While studying to be a dentist, Morris Kessler met Irene Nass, who was planning to become an elementary school teacher. Irene and Morris married after a whirlwind courtship at Wrigley Field and moved to the small town of Sebewaing, Michigan, where they started a family and Kessler began his practice. When the U.S. entered WWII, Kessler joined the Army Air Force.

The family moved to Urbana, Illinois, until the war ended. They returned to Michigan where the Kessler girls all eventually graduated from LSA. "Education has always been very important to my family," said Judy Wilpon. "My parents didn't have much money when my sisters and I attended college, so it was a struggle, but they were determined that their daughters receive a good education. It means so much to me to be able to provide scholarship support to students who need it. Fred and I have had such good fortune in our lives. We are delighted to share the opportunity and support we received as students here at Michigan with others who might otherwise be unable to attend this fabulous institution."
