First of all, my thoughts go out to the entire Buss family.

In addition to winning 10 NBA Championships as the owner of the Los Angeles Lakers, Dr. Jerry Buss had numerous ties to USC.

Buss earned his Ph.D. form USC, and sat court-side at numerous USC basketball games. In 2008, he donated $7.5 million to support education and research in USC’s Department of Chemistry. Buss hired members of the Trojan Marching Band to perform as the Lakers Band during home games at Staples Center.

His daughter, Jeanie, also attended USC.
