active members of their community. Jerry Kill led Northern Illinois University’s team to a four-win improvement
from 2007 to 2008, earning them a trip to the 2008 Independence Bowl while assisting cancer patients and their
families with medical costs and other expenses through his own charitable fund. Liberty Mutual Insurance
