Founding Member, President Emeritus, designer of our logo - Geoffrey de Sola Pinto, passed away yesterday. He was predeceased by his wife Pat last year. Geoffrey was an outstanding Jamaican and an outstanding member of Jamaica's Jewish Community. He was passionate about preserving Jamaica's rich heritage and was a founding member of the Georgian Society of Jamaica in 1967, and author of "Jamaican Houses: A Vanishing Legacy". Last month the Government of Jamaica finally recognized the many years of contribution he made to promote and preserve Jamaica's heritage and was named in Jamaica's National Honours List for 2015. He would have received his Order of Distinction, Commander Class next month at the annual National Honours and Awards ceremony to be held at Kings House on National Heroes Day, 19 October 2015. May his soul rest in eternal peace.
