Mincio is a 2014 Jefferson Award winner
Seattle’s City Club has selected Islander Kevin Mincio as one of its 2014 Washington State Jefferson Award winners. The winners represent “unsung heroes; those who are making a difference in their community, the nation and the world, through their jobs or volunteer service.”
Shortly after the 9/11 attacks, Mincio left a Wall Street job to join the Army and served a tour of duty in Iraq with a fellow soldier, Jesse. They became close friends. In honor of his friend and other soldiers, Mincio started the Team Jesse Foundation to help families of fallen soldiers by raising money through awareness and events.
A public celebration for the winners will be held from 7 until 8:30 p.m., Monday, April 7, at the Museum of History and Industry in Seattle. Tickets are available at www.SeattleCityClub.org or by calling (206) 682-7395.
