The Brockville and District Chamber of Commerce has named Jeff Wiwchar of JAK Group as its Business Person of the Year. 

In a statement, BDCC said Wiwchar and his renovation company donated time and energy to the Community Pavillion that's adjacent to the outdoor rink on the Rotary Pad, which opened on time and on budget back in January. 

"Jeff worked with the team that designed, engineered, donated material and built this great community space," the chamber said. 

"He is a trusted community leader that understood the vision of what the Winter Classic Team and the City wanted to put together." 

The Chamber said Jak Group also donated its shop during the annual Community Food Drive. 

Wiwchar will officially receive his award during the Chamber's annual gala, which is scheduled to be a drive-in event at the Sunnidell Golf Course on Oct. 15.
