Jack Luscombe "Pay It Forward" Award


Jack Luscombe will be remembered not only for being “Jack the Roofer”, but also for his generous heart. He always donated his AAMD Trade Show booth to charity and supported numerous other groups and people in need. He literally, in several instances, gave people the jacket off his back if he thought it would help. Jack was a consummate fi sherman and would always filet, de-bone, and quick freeze hundreds of pounds of fish every year that he would then personally deliver to the various food banks in the area. Jack was dedicated to the mindset of paying it forward to those in need. This award is a fitting recognition for others within our apartment association who share the generous spirit that Jack imbued so well. 


The recipient of this award will have demonstrated the generous spirit of Jack in any way, such as community service projects, specific ways they went above and beyond for the community, etc.


This award is presented annually at the AAMD June Awards Board Installation and Hall of Fame Dinner.
