It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of long-time member, Javier Cruz, AIA, on November 22. Javier was an integral part of the AIA Miami family. He served in every office of the chapter board including President and also served on the AIA Florida Board. He received numerous awards and commendations from AIA including the Silver Medal, one of our highest honors. Javier’s family asks that donations in his name be made to AIA Miami. A permanent scholarship in Javier’s name will be created by the chapter in his honor.
