The JASC Business Hall of Fame was established in 1986 to recognize individuals who have made outstanding contributions to free enterprise and society. Individuals are nominated by the Brevard County community members and then selected by a committee of Business Hall of Fame Laureates. Each nominee’s record of business achievement must demonstrate business excellence, courageous thinking and actions, vision and innovation, inspiring leadership, social responsibility and serving as a role model to those who follow.
