This paper offers a reflection on Jerry Kennedy’s manifold contributions to the Department of Anthropology at Florida Atlantic University and their continuing influence a decade past his retirement. These contributions include his work on the archaeology of south Florida and elsewhere, the training of students at both undergraduate and graduate levels, the creation of programs, and the lending of his administrative acumen to department causes. Jerry’s work as an archaeologist has been conditioned by his generous spirit, putting student and program achievement above that of his individual career. As a result, his legacy endures not just in archaeology, but in the students and colleagues with whom he has partnered.
