Slusky to be Honored by His Alma Mater
Omaha lawyer and real estate developer Jerry Slusky will be honored October 4 with a prestigious induction into the 2018 Central High School Alumni Association Hall of Fame.
He is one of 10 alums whose paths from the halls of Central High School led them to the highest levels of achievement in business and community service. Inductees are selected by the Central High School Alumni Association and the program is presented by the Central High School Foundation.
“Over my career, my ties to Central High School have endured and strengthened,” Slusky said, “I am truly honored to be selected as a part of this illustrious group of people.”
A 1963 Central High School graduate with honors, Slusky bypassed opportunities to study at top academic institutions to study at the University of Nebraska at Omaha. Graduating in 1966, Slusky then went on to earn his law degree cum laude from Creighton University in 1971.
Early in his career, Slusky started an annual gathering, the CRE Summit, of professionals in the local real estate field with the goal of strengthening their individual knowledge base and network with each other. The CRE Summit committee, lead by Slusky, is starting preparations for the 30th annual meeting in the spring of 2019.
“Virtually all aspects of business and economic growth involve some form of real estate transaction, so for nearly 1,000 business and real estate leaders to gather to spend a day focused on the topic is a big deal … This is definitely a conference where deals are made,” said former Senior VP of Economic Development
for the Greater Omaha Chamber of Commerce, Randy Thelen, now with the Downtown Denver Partnership, during a presentation at the annual Commercial Real Estate Summit (CRE Summit) earlier this year.
One of the most successful real estate lawyers in the region, Slusky has been recognized by Chambers & Partners’ legal publication America’s Leading Business Lawyers Client Guide for his extensive experience in real estate including
zoning, municipal law and finance matters, tax appeals and tax-deferred transactions. American College of Real Estate Attorneys awarded Slusky as one of seven CRE attorneys in Nebraska to be inducted by peer review.
Similarly, he was voted among the best lawyers in the United States 14 consecutive years from 2003-2017 by Best Lawyers in America, and has been recognized for that same period of time by Omaha Magazine as “One of Omaha’s Best Real Estate Attorneys.”
Slusky is a regular contributor of his time, resources and talent to charitable organizations including Angels Among Us and the Jewish Community. Slusky served as the President of the Jewish Federation of Omaha in 1994-1995.
