E. Jay Carlson Award
2019: Odette Embury
In memory of one of the leaders of the CDBIA, the E. Jay Carlson Award was presented this year to Odette Embury, Drummond Mortgage.
Jay Carlson dedicated his life to the building industry. He was a leader who gave us a strong foundation. His legacy will continue on with future leaders in the industry. That is The Carlson Way.
Odette joined the CDBIA over 30 years ago and has stepped up to lead whenever she was needed. Odette currently serves on the FHBA Associate/Trades Council and took on the leadership position of being the chair of the SWFL Parade of Homes. Each meeting she can be seen in the CDBIA spirit shop, raising funds for the Spike Club, and always supporting each event.
