Abstract:

Entrepreneur Jacoby Dickens was born in 1931, in Panama City, Florida. Early in his childhood, Dickens’ family moved to Chicago, Illinois, and lived on the City’s South Side. After high school, Dickens served in the U.S. Army before returning to Chicago. His first entrepreneurial success came with his purchase of real estate. He was then invited to join the board of Seaway National Bank, one of the largest African American-owned financial institutions in the nation, where he became chairman in 1983. Dickenss distinguished himself just as much for his philanthropic efforts as for his entrepreneurial successes. In addition to the community outreach programs developed through Seaway Bank, Dickens designed a loan and scholarship program at DePaul University named in his honor. He also donated more than $1 million to Chicago State University. Dickens passed away on April 14, 2013 at age 82.
