Dynasty Elevator Corp. Vice President John Mezzo hosted the inaugural LJM Memorial Golf Outing in July at Trump Golf Links at Ferry Point in Bronx, New York. Nearly 100 golfers participated in the event, named for Mezzo’s late father, Louis John Mezzo, who was diagnosed with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) a number of years ago. There is no current cure for IPF other than a lung transplant, which Louis Mezzo received in January 2020 before passing away in May 2021. John Mezzo organized the event to raise awareness about the disease and funds for the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation, pulmonaryfibrosis.org.

Attendees included the Mezzo family, friends, Louis Mezzo’s colleagues from Ernst & Young, as well as industry professionals from Sierra Consulting Group, Triumph Electric, Omega Vertical Transportation Consultants, The Peelle Co., Vantage, BSIS, Delaware Elevator, Nouveau Elevator, TK Elevator, Smartrise Engineering, VDA, Metro Machining and Fabricating, Standard Elevator, Monitor Elevator Products, Broadway Elevator Consultants and Triboro Elevator Consultants. “Oh yeah — Colton Orr from the New York Rangers was there, too!” John Mezzo said. 

Golf was followed by dinner and awards, as well as a heartfelt speech by Louis Mezzo’s wife, Marilyn. John Mezzo said:

“The support was overwhelming from family, friends and colleagues. It was incredible to see all aspects of the elevator industry come together. Despite a crazy flash hail and rain storm that caused everyone to be pulled off the course, everyone had a great time and the event was a huge success.” 

The next LJM Memorial Golf Outing is being planned for 2023. 

Trump Golf Links at Ferry Point in the Bronx hosted the event.
