Frank Spangenberg’s $27,597 Gift

The J!Effect is all about how Jeopardy! changes lives beyond the game. Back in January of 1990 (when players were limited to a 5-day run and take-home earnings of no more than $75,000), New York City Transit policeman Frank Spangenberg racked up a score that changed his life and career. It also led him to contribute to a particular charity, which he attributes to “providence.”
