Jerry Allison received our first AIESEC Life Hall of Fame award in Montreal, July 2019. Jerry helped start the AIESEC chapter at Northern Illinois University (NIU) in 1961, is a founding member of AIESEC Life, has served on the board of AIESEC US as well as on the board of advisors for several LCs, including Georgia Tech, Emory and NIU.  He is co-founder and CEO of AJC International, an international multi-billion dollar food wholesaler and has taken AIESEC trainees since 1979. 

One of Jerry's fondest AIESEC memories is the traineeship he had in Lima, Peru. AIESEC Life chairman, Peter Stewart summed it up well, "Jerry has really done everything an AIESECer could practically do...started an LC, gone on a traineeship, started a company, hired trainees at that company, served on multiple BOAs, and contributed financially to AIESEC Life, LCs and AIESEC US."  

Jerry's eagerness and willingness to share his AIESEC and business experience with students is just one of the many reasons he deserves this award. Thank you Jerry for being a pillar of strength and an inspiration to multiple generations of AIESECers!
