Jay Winuk

Jay Winuk lost his younger brother, Glenn, an attorney and firefighter, in the line of duty on 9/11. His brother’s heroism and life long devotion to community service inspired Winuk to co-found MyGoodDeed.org, a nonprofit leading the movement to transform 9/11 into an annually recognized National Day of Service and Remembrance. Currently serving as Vice President and Secretary, Winuk is helping to build the 9/11 Day Observance initiative. A passionate advocate for volunteering and national service, he is a frequent public speaker on volunteerism, 9/11, and service-related topics. In 2006, Winuk was honored with the “Building Bridges Award” from the Voices of September 11th advocacy group and in 2008 he was awarded, along with MyGoodDeed.org co-founder David Paine, the nation’s highest volunteer service recognition: The President’s Call to Service Award. His efforts have inspired thousands to be actively involved in service to their communities.
