Saugerties Sports Hall of Fame honors Naccarato Insurance for 60 years of business & philanthropy
For Jack Naccarato, 2023 was already destined to be a banner year. It’s the 60th anniversary not only of his marriage, but also of the business that he and his new bride Pat founded in their Saugerties basement: Naccarato Insurance. And 30 years ago, Jack was inducted into the Saugerties Sports Hall of Fame Club at that organization’s annual banquet. The insurance business was doing well enough that the family had become active local philanthropists. “We were a major sponsor every year for that banquet,” Jack says.
So, on April 1 of this year, as the induction banquet rolled around again, it was time for some recognition: Jack Naccarato and Naccarato Insurance received the Saugerties Sports Hall of Fame Club’s highest honor, the President’s Award. It was an accolade celebrating not only their support for that institution, but also their many decades of aid to a wide variety of charities, clubs and not-for-profit organizations in Saugerties, New Paltz and Kingston, the communities where the company has its offices. “I really like to give back,” Jack says modestly.
