The late Jack Hollon


  • Category: Honorary
  • Organization Location: The Texas Hill Country


In the classrooms where he taught for more than thirty years, speaking at public forums, or in quiet conversations with elected officials, the late Jack Hollon is remembered by his peers for bringing up rainwater harvesting in practically any conversation. He was part of the working group that planned, promoted, and facilitated the Rainwater Revival, an annual event that educates Texans about the benefits of rainwater harvesting.

To quote from one of the submitted letters, “At his memorial in December, as friends told stories about his life, someone stood up and said, ‘Remember how Jack would patiently wait his turn at groundwater conservation or water supply board meetings and then calmly ask ‘have you considered rainwater harvesting as a strategy?’’”. Mr. Hollon’s lifetime of advocacy is truly deserving of an honorary Texas Rain Catcher Award.
