In response to your next question ‘Why is the scholarship named after Jack Moshgat’, read ahead. Jack was a former Navy submarine commander who, upon retiring from the military, went into the property management field. He had a gruff, no-nonsense exterior; but, at heart, he was a generous and genuinely nice man. He worked for Tishman West for a number of years (at the time they were one of the largest management firms on the West Coast
), and was the original manager of Columbia Center.  Jack was active in BOMA San Diego for many years and was President in 1987. He was a mentor and friend to many BOMA members in the 1980s and early-1990s, hence the decision to award the scholarship in his name. 

Last year, our two deserving, Scholarship recipients were Maru Cham with 
CBRE, and Alina Talbot with Providien Property Management. We are excitedly watching their forward progress with this assistance from Jack – you could be next!

We look forward to seeing your application!
