Through Others’ Eyes

Jeffery Koenig

“Mr. Koenig shines as a community leader and an exceptional philanthropist. He humbly contributes his time and energy without recognition and is often hands-on with the projects he and his family underwrite. Jeff likes to be a ‘part of’ the activities of the nonprofits he assists as opposed to watching from the sidelines. Jeff’s peers and my colleagues view him as a role model for servant leadership.” — Cambre Horne-Brooks

“He’s a great guy to go floating with — he has an entire kitchen he puts in the boat!” — Hugh Brewer

“Being a businessman who grew a very valuable business and worked hard, he sees it from the standpoint of ‘What does this mean to the whole community?’ Not just the emotion side, but what does it mean to business as well?” — David Johnson

“If Jeff Koenig says it, you can take it to the bank. And if he’s your friend, you know he’s got your back.” — Dr. Kim Agee
