Welcome to the



Mashpee Kiwanis has suffered the loss of one of its most loved members.  On September 8th, 2016 Jerry Umina passed away.  It was not unexpected.  The club had watched his failing health for some time.  Still, he came to meetings, contributed his vote on issues and completed all but the meeting the week before he passed.  His love of what he did, the way he did it, and the way he helped each and every member of the Mashpee Kiwanis, made things and events that much more fun and productive for not only our club, but all of the clubs in our Cape Cod division and, in fact, the whole New England and Bermuda district of Kiwanis. He connected with so many people while he was Lieutenant Governor and his energy was always infectious.  He was present at all major Kiwanis occasions, and always ready to help set up, break down or spend the day working at the event.  Our club members all have personal stories that involve Jerry and his quiet way of doing his best to make the project at hand a success.


Some of the positions that Jerry held in Kiwanis were as follows:

Club Treasurer – Club President -member of board of directors – Lieutenant Governor of the Cape Cod Kiwanis Clubs – in charge of wishing wells – worked at Kiwanis “One Day” every year.  The list could go on and on.  He would be the first to volunteer to go to an interclub with another Kiwanis group.  I think that was because he would try to “borrow” the visited club’s bell or gavel and “store” it until the other Kiwanians would come to visit us in Mashpee.


There will be a void in our club now that he has passed, but his legacy, his longevity, and his quiet mentoring, will be carried on in our membership.  He will be quoted often, imitated often, and loved forever.  As one member put it, Jerry was the sweetest man that you could ever disagree with.  He always made you feel better for the attempt.

Rest easy our friend, your legacy will be safe with us.
