Jason Taylor opened the doors of his non-profit organization in 2004 with the goal of building a better future for area children in need. Nearly 15 years later, the Pro Football Hall of Famer established a Hall of Fame of his own to celebrate individuals who inspire him daily to carry out the Jason Taylor Foundation’s mission.
On Saturday, May 13, 2023, the third annual Jason Taylor Community Hall of Fame Dinner will be hosted by Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood. This year’s class of Community Hall of Fame inductees will include Jeff Conine (Celebrity Honoree), Susan Renneisen (Corporate Honoree) and a Youth Honoree to be determined by a panel vote.
For the first time in the event’s history, the Jason Taylor Foundation will accept nominations for the Community Hall of Fame Youth Honoree. Submissions for a youth (high school senior or younger) who has exhibited superior commitment to service in the South Florida community should be made here: https://www.jasontaylorcommunityhof.org/nominate/
Joy Taylor, co-host of SPEAK on FS1, and sister of Jason Taylor, will emcee this event. Proceeds from this event will benefit the Jason Taylor Foundation whose mission is to support and create programs that facilitate the personal growth and empowerment of South Florida’s children in need by focusing on improved health care, education and quality of life.
“The bar has been set high by our existing Community Hall of Famers, and this year’s class featuring Jeff Conine and Susan Renneisen is an incredibly worthy addition to that very special group,” said Jason Taylor. “With each new class, I am reminded more and more how fortunate all of us in South Florida are to have community leaders who put others in front of themselves. We cannot wait to celebrate Jeff and Susan, along with a special young person, for all that they do to make our community a better place.”
