On Monday, October 14th (Columbus Day) at the Brookmeadow Country Club in Canton, MA there will be the James "Jake" Hoffman Memorial Golf Scholarship Tournament that will take place in memory of Jake Hoffman.
Who He Was- Jake Hoffman, was a Stoughton resident who was set to graduate from UMass Amherst this year but tragically passed away in an off-campus apartment complex fire the day before classes were to begin at UMass in January 2013. Jake was highly involved in his major, Hospitality and Tourism Management, and was set to complete a rotational internship program at The Country Club in Brookline this summer after becoming involved in the UMass Student Chapter of the Club Managers Association of America and the New England Club Managers Association in recent years.
Other School Involvement- Jake also used his many great hospitality skills to participate in other UMass programs such as the Sports Management student program - Covering the Bases: A Night with the General Managers. On top of this he was vice president of the Jewish Student Union and involved with a large-scale project called MESIBA.
The Scholarship- Proceeds from this golf tournament will go towards the Jake Hoffman Memorial Scholarship Fund at UMass Amherst to benefit a student(s) with aspirations to complete a degree in hospitality and tourism management with a special emphasis in club and sport management.
