Jacoby Dickens was the long-time chairman and president of Seaway Bank and Trust, one of the largest black-owned financial institutions in the country.

At Seaway, he said the bank should be a community partner and it is often credited with shoring up the black middle-class in neighborhoods like Chatham.

An entrepreneur and a philanthropist, Dickens donated over a million dollars to Chicago State University, where the athletic center bears his name.

He is survived by his wife Veranda. Jacoby Dickens was 82.

Visitation will be Saturday, April 20 from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., followed by funeral services from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Chicago State University's Jones Convocation Center, 9501 S. King Drive.

Condolences should be sent to the attention of the Executive Office, Seaway Bank and Trust Company, 645 E. 87th Street, Chicago, IL 60619. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the attention of Harvey Redfern; The Jacoby Dickens Foundation, 626 W. Jackson Blvd., Suite 550, Chicago, Illinois 60601.
