$1M gift names the Cheezem Family Landing/Undergraduate Collaboration Commons in Legacy Hall
The developer of some of the most impactful projects in Pinellas County and bustling downtown St. Petersburg has made, with his spouse, a gift to help the Florida State University College of Business soar to increasingly new heights.
Alumnus Mike Cheezem (B.S. Finance ’75) and his wife, Katherine, recently committed $1 million to name the Cheezem Family Landing/Undergraduate Collaboration Commons in Legacy Hall, the college’s future home.
Cheezem, founder and CEO of St. Petersburg-based JMC Communities, said he and his wife made the gift largely to advance the college’s journey to preeminence.
