Chairman’s Citation

NPF Award Winner: Chairman’s Citation - Nigel Jaquiss

Nigel Jaquiss 2015

Willamette Week

“Nigel Jaquiss has demonstrated that in this digital world, we must still return to the craft of journalism to hold our institutions, our politicians, and our society accountable,” said NPF board chairman Heather Dahl. “Jaquiss and his editors are an inspiration to all of us because they show us that it is not the medium in which we publish, the cool digital tools we wield, the social media following we develop, the personal brand we market, or the click bait headlines we craft that brings injustice and corruption to light; it’s the facts—the facts uncovered by reporting and reporting and reporting some more until the truth sees daylight.”

Nigel Jaquiss, 53, has been a reporter at Willamette Week in Portland, Ore. since 1998. He has won local and national reporting honors, including the 2005 Pulitzer Prize for investigative reporting and three first place awards from Investigative Reporters and Editors, including the 2014 IRE medal for stories that led to the resignation of Oregon Gov. John Kitzhaber. Prior to joining Willamette Week, Jaquiss traded oil for 11 years in New York and Singapore. He is a graduate of Dartmouth College and the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism.
