8th Annual James J. Pallotta Award Recipient

We are proud to honor Jeffrey A. Leerink, chairman and CEO of Leerink Partners, as the 2017 James J. Pallotta Award Recipient. This award recognizes individuals who have engaged in supporting children in our community and whose efforts have had significant impact on their lives.

Jeff’s passion for helping children in need has inspired countless individuals to invest in the Boston youth community through his work with Big Brothers Big Sister of Massachusetts Bay for the better part of the last twenty years. We thank Jeff for his service as Chairman of the Board and for his continued work as Development Chair, Chair of the Golf Classic Committee and members of both the Big Night and Big3 Fishing Tournament Committees. Through this work, it’s fair to say that Jeff has played a direct and crucial role in helping BBBSMB raise millions of dollars in support of the children we serve. Jeff truly leads by example and has been a Big Brother to Little Brother Davonte for the last four years. Jeff’s commitment, dedication and influence betters Boston and beyond – congratulations Jeff!

Previous recipients of the James J. Pallotta Award include: Anita and Josh Bekenstein, Timothy Dibble, Sandra Edgerly, Michael Eisenson, Gerald Chertavian, Martin J. Mannion, Phillip T. Gross and James J. Pallotta

Jason Derulo
Jason Derulo


Singer, songwriter, and dancer Jason Derulo is one of the most successful and sought-after artists in the industry today. In the six years since ascending to superstardom, Derulo has sold over 55 million singles worldwide, all of which have been co-written by the artist himself. Jason Derulo, who got his start writing hits for other a-list artists such as Lil Wayne, Pitbull, Diddy and more, has seen his eye-grabbing music videos amass over two billion views on YouTube. His music has been streamed over six billion times on Spotify, and his singles have aired on radio to an audience of over 17 billion since his debut single “Whatcha Say.” His four acclaimed studio albums have accumulated eleven Top 10 singles (including four #1 singles on the Hot 100): “Whatcha Say,” “In My Head,” “Ridin’ Solo,” “Don’t Wanna Go Home,” “It Girl,” “The Other Side,” “Marry Me,” “Talk Dirty,” “Wiggle,” “Trumpets,” and “Want To Want Me.” Equally as influential overseas, Jason Derulo has had four #1 singles in the UK, with “Want To Want Me” staying at #1 for four weeks in 2015. With more new music on the way later this year, Jason Derulo continues to remain at the forefront of modern music, continuing to help shape the DNA of both urban and pop music.
