​Captain Jack Pierce, USN (Ret), held the distinction of being among the founding members of the City of Charleston Police Pipes and Drums.  Having contributed his talents as both bass drummer and piper, Jack also served many years as Band Treasurer until his retirement in 2007.  Throughout his tenure with the band, he consistently demonstrated a sustained commitment to our performance goals and objectives.  Jack’s quiet leadership, wit, dependability, and volunteerism set a standard for member conduct that will endure the test of time. Despite his passing in 2019, Jack's legacy of camaraderie, selfless service, member engagement, and responsibility live on through our recognition of the "Jack Pierce Memorial Member of the Year" award, given annually.
