The Ogden company formerly known as Flying J has donated $3.5 million to the business schools of Utah’s two biggest public universities.

The Jon M. Huntsman School of Business at Utah State University and the David Eccles School of Business at the University of Utah each will receive $1.75 million, FJ Management Inc. said Monday.

Each school will receive $1 million to fund new career services centers that will bear the Flying J name. Each will get an additional $750,000 over a 15-year period for FJ Management employees who apply for scholarships.

Crystal Call Maggelet, FJ Management’s CEO, said the gifts fulfilled her late father’s vision to help young people further their education. Jay Call founded Flying J in 1968. He died in 2003 when a plane he was piloting crashed in Idaho.
