Samuel Hekemian purchased and developed residential and commercial properties of the highest quality and, in the process, attained an outstanding reputation among his peers and in the financial community. As Chairman and President of the S. Hekemian Group (SHG), he made significant contributions in such areas as property acquisition, site design, land approval, and land development. Prior to founding SHG, Samuel served as President of Hekemian & Co., where he played a critical role in the formation and growth of the First Real Estate Investment Trust of New Jersey, a REIT publicly traded under the symbol FREVS.

In addition to Samuel’s career achievements in residential and commercial real estate, he served on a number of charitable and community organizations including the Hackensack University Medical Center and the Armenian Presbyterian Church.

When Samuel was President of the Armenian Missionary Association of America, he strived to spread the word of Christ to countries in need of spirituality. He also worked hard to bring together the various committees within the Armenian Missionary Association of America to help them reach mutually agreed upon organizational goals.

Family was important to Samuel as his career and philanthropic achievements. Our condolences to his wife Sandra and four sons, Peter, Jeffrey, Richard and Mark, grandchildren and extended family and friends.
