Jonathan Levin (May 6 1966May 30, 1997) was the son of former Time Warner CEO Gerald M. Levin and Barbara Riley Levin.

He attended Shelter Rock Elementary School and Manhasset Jr./Sr. High School in Manhasset, New Yorkmarker. He continued his education at Trinity Collegemarker in Connecticut, graduating in 1988.

In 1993 Mr. Levin joined Taft High School in the Bronxmarker as an English teacher. He received his Master of Arts Degree in May 1995 from New York Universitymarker's School of Education.

In 1997 Levin was tortured, robbed and brutally murdered in his Upper West Side apartment by a former student. The student, Corey Arthur, was convicted of second-degree murder and sentenced to 25 years to life in prison in November 1998. A purported accomplice, Montoun Hart, was acquitted on the same charges in February 1999. While Hart had written a confession, jurors were not able to find out how it was obtained and felt it was unreliable.

The murder occurred after Jonathan had mentioned that his father was Time-Warner head Gerald M. Levin in the classroom. The former student, Corey Arthur, assumed that Jonathan was rich. The student stole Jonathan's bank card and got the account's PIN. Of course, any real money would have been held outside of the traditional banking account (e.g., in investment accounts).

In 1997, "Jonathan M. Levin Way" was created in the Bronx on the section of East 172nd Street between Sheridan Avenue and Morris Avenue. [165720].When Taft High School was broken up into multiple schools, one school that was created, in 2002, was the Jonathan Levin High School for Media and Communications with a startup grant from Time Warner.

The New York Court of Appeals declined to review Corey Arthur's conviction on March 29 2002.
