Long-time HVAC industry veteran Maurice “Maury” Jacobson died June 30. He was 93.

Jacobson served as a leading member of the industry, rising to chairman of the board of ACCA in 1975. Outside of owning and operating his own contracting business, Jacobson served on ACCA’s Board of Directors and the South Palm Beach Florida Code Enforcement Board.

His accomplishments didn’t just end in the HVAC industry, however. In 2005, Jacobson was elected mayor of South Palm Beach and served three two-year terms.

He also served his local community on the community affairs advisory board, Palm Tran Service Board, Palm Beach County League of Cities, Technical Advisory Committee for the Florida State Building Code, and Energy Code Commission.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that contributions be made to Trustbridge/Hospice of Palm Beach County (www.hpbc.com) or the Blinded Veterans Association (www.bva.org).
