Lumon May was born and raised right here in Pensacola, Florida. For almost his entire life, he’s lived in the westside neighborhoods that make up District Three.
His mother, Mary, and his late father, Theophalis, taught Lumon and his six brothers and sisters the importance of honesty, loyalty, faith and hard work. Lumon also learned from his parents that if he could change just one block, or one neighborhood, then he could change the world.
This lesson inspired Lumon as a young man to begin a lifetime of community service, serving as a youth sports coach, mentor, local building contractor, and affordable home builder. He also serves on several boards and advisory committees of local nonprofit organizations and agencies.
Lumon is married to Tammie, and together they have two children. Their daughter, Armoni, finishes her senior year of high school this year and their son, LJ, is a rising high school sophomore.
