"Jamie has been incredibly dedicated to his profession and building his career while remaining equally dedicated and devoted as a husband and father to our three young daughters. His work doesn't end when he clocks out at the end of the day. He is learning new information, exploring ways to support staff and envisioning the ways he hopes to lead BKC in the future, all while cooking dinner or being a literal human jungle gym. I am so thrilled for him to have this role as partner at the firm. He has worked so hard to get here while maintaining his work-home life balance and relationships with colleagues and business partners. Being proud of him doesn't scratch the surface."
