Each year, for the past ten years or so, Pam Jacobson has shown up almost daily to the USTA Membership booth at the Nasdaq-100 Open (formerly the Ericsson Open, formerly the Lipton championships) to bring laughs and treats to the other volunteers and to sell USTA memberships. Pam is tireless.  The more she sells, the happier she is.  It’s hard to resist her sales pitch.  Young or old, she knows that tennis is good for you, and USTA membership will help increase your tennis options.

Pam resides in Miami with her husband, Gil, a practicing periodontist and her son, Mel, a dental student, and 3 four legged children, Loocie, Ethel & Riggs.  Pam started her tennis career as a full-fledged tennis mom. Mel played junior tennis in Florida with Mardy Fish and Andy Roddick.  She watched first hand how good tennis is for kids. She loved traveling throughout Florida, the U.S. and Europe as a tennis mom.   Pam is the Aerobic and Fitness Director at US 1 Fitness in North Miami.  She also knows first hand how good fitness is for you and how much tennis can help all ages stay in shape.

Pam’s most recent achievement is a major contribution to the 442 memberships signed up at the 2004 Nasdaq-100 Open.  Pam also assisted at the Davis Cup, and the Andy Roddick Foundation event.  Pam doesn’t just limit her accomplishments and volunteer work to tennis.  She helps out on a regular basis with the local humane society.

When asked why she loves to volunteer, her answer is simple, “I have so much fun. Between my tennis experience with my son and my involvement in the fitness industry, I know that tennis is a great experience.  I enjoy encouraging people of all ages, juniors and seniors, to stay fit and active through tennis, and while they are doing that, to create a social network of new friends.”

With that kind of commitment, is it any wonder that she can sell a tennis membership?  We thank you Pam for all you do.  We are so proud to celebrate Pam Jacobson as June’s Volunteer of the Month!
