Public Invited to Celebrate Life of John Q. Hammons on June 11

A ceremony to honor the life of John Q. Hammons, the iconic hotel developer and philanthropist, has been scheduled for next week in Springfield.

John Q. Hammons has left a large legacy on the community. He developed many hotels across the U.S. and was a well-known businessman, whose millions worth of donations helped changed the landscape in Springfield. Next Tuesday, a tribute will be hosted by John Q. Hammons Companies.

Sheri Davidson-Smith, PR spokeswoman for the company, expects a large turnout from the community.

“It’s a chance for others to sit and reflect on the many wonderful things that Mr. Hammons did over a wonderful life," Davidson-Smith said.

The tribute will be held on Tuesday, June 11 from 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. in the JQH Arena on the Missouri State campus. Doors will open at 12:30 p.m.
