The Jeremy Glick Memorial Spirit of Judo Award is named in honor of Jeremy Glick who tragically gave his life in the plane crash on 9/11. Many people were in awe of Jeremy Glick’s calm composure and chivalrous demeanor before his final moments of life. Especially impressive was his last conversation with his wife and how considerate of her he was.

This award is based on the spirit of Judo: courage, compassion and character. The recipients are honored for their many years of leadership, development of people, development of Judo, and courageous dedication in insuring the continued success of Judo and the USJF.
