In 2007, the Richard G. Colombo Award was established. The award is presented periodically to an individual who has made significant personal contributions toward the advancement of the organized commercial, industrial and institutional construction industry. This award carries with it a high degree of regard for its recipients who have demonstrated personal dedication and noteworthy efforts consistent with the examples set forth by the late Richard G. Colombo.

In 2010, this extraordinary award was presented to Bob Baish, Baish Excavating, where until now he was the only recipient. However, at the annual Contractors Association of Will & Grundy Counties (CAWGC) cocktail reception Jason Cox also was honored with this prestigious award for all his dedication to the CAWGC and the construction industry. Cox who was very surprised, was presented this award by Baish. When this was announced twenty of Jason's family members and friends marched into the room to witness this great honor.
