MIFA’s Something Good in Memphis campaign is designed to celebrate those who make Memphis better, whether it’s the stranger who helps change your flat tire in the rain or a human services pioneer who changes the lives of a hundred poor Memphians. Sometimes people tend to focus on the bad and forget the good, but we see reminders of the good in Memphis every day!

Jerome Hardaway is something good!

Jerome Hardaway is an astounding member of the Memphis community. Coming from a military background, he has never loss his sense of duty to the people or to his fellow veterans. He continues to be his brother's keeper with continuing outreach for veterans in need, donations, volunteering to mentor other young veterans, helping them with adjustment and transition to civilian life and personally responding to veterans in need of immediate help. He is also the only person I know who would step up to stop a robbery without a second thought in regards to his safety, only to find during the trial process that one of the robbers were armed. Nominated by Mark Akin.

Jerome Hardaway is indeed something good in Memphis. I had the privilege of serving alongside him in the Air Force for several years. We lost contact thereafter, but when we relinked, I told him I was moving from Atlanta to Memphis. Without hesitation he was right there with that same sense of authentic friendship and duty, helping me to adjust to a new city. He's a good man to know 'round here.
