KPMG/Jason H. Hackenmiller Memorial Scholarship

The KPMG Jason H. Hackenmiller Memorial Scholarship is given in memory of Jason H. Hackenmiller, a 2008 University of Illinois Masters in Accountancy Science graduate.

On November 14, 2008, KPMG lost one of its own, Jason Hackenmiller. Jason was born in Fairbanks, Alaska on July 20, 1985, to Maggie and Larry “Hack” Hackenmiller. He attended Immaculate Conception Grade School and Monroe Junior/Senior Catholic School, graduating in 2003. During his school years, he enjoyed Cub Scouts, Little League, soccer, Interior Youth basketball, snowboarding and was a member of the Monroe Catholic basketball and soccer teams. He also enjoyed spending time at his family’s Harding Lake cabin. Jason was highly disciplined in his studies, pursuing his college degree at the University of Illinois, where he attained his Bachelor of Science degree from the business college with a major in accounting. He was then awarded a master’s of accounting science degree in May 2008.

While attending the University of Illinois, he was a recipient of the George Huff award for outstanding scholar-athletes and earned an Internship in New York City. He was a member of the Alpha Epsilon Fraternity. After completing and passing his CPA exams, he began a six-week trip home from Illinois, touring many state parks and visiting family and friends along the way. Jason began his career with KPMG in September 2008, choosing to work from the Anchorage office so he could be close to family and friends.

Jason’s smile, charm and sincerity warmed all who had the joy of knowing him. His clever sense of humor brightened many lives. He maintained meaningful connections with a wealth of family and friends, demonstrating his value of relationships. Jason was a driven young man who lived life to its fullest. He set high goals for himself and strived to achieve them. Jason had a great love of traveling; he enjoyed venturing to many new places. Jason was a bright light and special person who made a difference in the lives he touched.
