As interviewed by Patricia Appleton

As a member of the Women’s Club at UCF, Wendy Jamison became intrigued by rumors a few years ago about a senior living community affiliated with the university. A visit to the Legacy Pointe Information Center with her husband Frank clinched the deal.
The couple was impressed by the friendliness of the staff and everything they learned. Although they were aware of some existing continuing care retirement communities in their Winter Park area, they never seriously considered these.
What attracted the Jamisons to Legacy Pointe? Frank, a retired engineer, noted the fact that Legacy Pointe will be built using the most modern design, upgrades, and construction materials and methods. The result he envisions is sure to be a first-class, state-of-the-art community.
The reputation of UCF as a world-class university also drew them like a magnet. With their own connections to UCF, Wendy and Frank know about the nationally recognized Rosen College of Hospitality Management, and they value its role in enhancing the lives for residents. In their calculations, the cultural and continued educational benefits of the UCF affiliation will distinguish Legacy Pointe from other options for this phase of their lives.
Wendy and Frank say they appreciate the new opportunities and support Legacy Pointe offers to pursue their current interests. Both love to travel and look forward to taking advantage of educational tourism managed by Rosen. By the way, Frank is an avid photographer. Check out the breathtaking galleries of the domestic and exotic destinations on his website, frankjamisonphotography.com.
They’re also members of a group of like-minded “arm-chair travelers,” who get together and share slides of recent trips.
Travel is just one interest that keeps Frank and Wendy stimulated. Both love the idea of Legacy Pointe providing transportation to the Shakespeare Theatre, the Orlando Philharmonic concerts, Broadway Across America, and other cultural events whenever they choose not to drive.
As charter residents since 2018, Wendy and Frank are eagerly waiting for that first shovel to hit the ground!
