The Alpha Omicron chapter of Pi Kappa Alpha has continued their sponsorship of the Jameson 5K, being held for the 10th year in a row at Southwestern University November 6th at 8:00am. The Jameson 5K began in 2001 as a way of honoring the memory of Brother Jaysn Jameson AO`87 and to increase the endowment of the Jaysn Jameson Memorial Scholarship Fund. Over the years, the race has become a premiere event for Southwestern University and the Georgetown community. Thanks to donations from sponsors, 100% of race registration fees every year are donated directly to the scholarship fund, benefitting a Southwestern University student majoring in the sciences who has demonstrated financial need. Brother Jameson passed away in 1991 in a freak scuba diving accident in the Gulf of Mexico. Jaysn was a very friendly, fun-loving, loyal, compassionate and caring individual who embodied the characteristics of a Pike as a scholar, leader, athlete, and gentleman.
