Jay Wilkinson, CEO and founder of Firespring and CoJMC alum, knew he wanted to leave a legacy behind honoring his father.

“My father was a huge support to me throughout my childhood,” Wilkinson said “He was the best dad a kid could have. He was my Boy Scout leader, the coach of my youth sports teams and never missed a single game or activity. My dream was to someday acquire enough wealth that I could do something big in his honor like have a park or hospital wing named after him.”
