John Long Entrepreneur Award
Positive Legacy and the Jam Cruise Conscious Cruiser program lost a brother to cancer in the fall of 2017. John Long, lovingly known as JLo, had been a vibrant team member since Jam Cruise 5.
An environmentalist and entrepreneur, John founded several businesses such as The Sustainable Living Fair, ZeroHero, Blue Sun Biodiesel and Biodiesel for Bands. His work was passionate, unwavering and importantly productive. His legacy of upstart environmental companies and nonprofits across his adopted state of Colorado inspired sustainable living in thousands of people.
Positive Legacy feels the best way to honor John is to continue his work though The John Long Entrepreneur Award. In his name, PL will work to find those fearless future leaders whose work will make the world a kinder, healthier and more sustainable place to live.
