AME mourns the loss Jackson Grayson--a beloved member of the continuous improvement community who was inducted into the AME Hall of Fame last year.
The AME Hall of Fame recognizes industry thought leaders and influencers who support the values, principles and practices found within leading enterprise excellence organizations. Jack’s career embodied these characteristics. After serving as chairman of the U.S. Price Commission under President Richard M. Nixon, Jack vowed he would help improve productivity across the United States. Realizing how important productivity was to the economic well-being of the nation he founded the American Productivity & Quality Center.
Jack held professorships at Harvard, Stanford, Tulane and Southern Methodist University and served the last two as dean of their business schools, where he became known for implementing innovations in business education.
He will be missed by all who knew him.
A celebration of life service will be held at 11:00 AM on May 12th at Chapelwood United Methodist Church in Houston; a reception will follow in the Fellowship Hall. See Jack’s obituary for full details.
