Jason Jenkins honored at Florida Memorial University (includes video story)

A special community memorial took place on Friday celebrating the life of Jason Jenkins at Florida Memorial University, where he was active in the community.

Jenkins spent the last 14 years as the senior vice president of communications with the Miami Dolphins and as a beloved supporter of FMU.

Gale Nelson, one of Jenkins’ mentees, said “He always made sure I was on track with what I was doing, and he made sure I was having an impact in my community just as much as he did.”

At Florida Memorial, he made sure to provide thousands of dollars in scholarships to the Certificate Program in Construction Trades, which provides equitable access for minorities in South Florida through employment in construction.
