Jeffery Bryan Chisholm, a teacher at Accotink Academy in Springfield, died Dec. 29 at George Washington University Hospital after a battle with pneumonia. He was 49.

Mr. Chisholm was surrounded by his brothers and family friends at the time of his death.

A longtime resident of the Washington area, he made his home at Lake Barcroft in Falls Church for many years.

Most recently, Mr. Chisholm taught life skills to developmentally challenged youths at Accotink Academy.

“Teaching alongside Jeff was an inspiration. It was like Sunday school every day,” fellow teacher Carol Tullo said.

Mr. Chisholm was active in several charities and other endeavors, including the ARC of Northern Virginia, the Knights of Columbus, the Civil War Round Table and early childhood development programs.

A native of Rockland, Maine, Mr. Chisholm was a star athlete at Rockland High School when he graduated in 1975.

He received a degree in business administration from St. Michael’s College in Vermont in 1979, and attended graduate schools in early childhood and special education programs at St. John’s University in Minnesota and George Mason University in Fairfax.

He enjoyed spending time on or near the water, whether vacationing with family and friends on the coast of Maine, at the beaches of Maryland and Delaware, or close to his home at Lake Barcroft.

Survivors include five brothers, David Chisholm of Rockland, Peter Chisholm of Danvers, Mass., Stephen Chisholm of the District, and Mathew Chisholm and Mark Chisholm, both of New York City.
