The Jamerson Athletic Center honors 1956 alumnus William Edward "Bill" Jamerson, whose family business constructed the building. Jamerson helped found and headed several construction and related businesses and was an Atlantic Coast Conference official. His generosity and sound advice have enhanced Virginia Tech athletics, the building construction department, and the university's Center for European Studies and Architecture.
