Jack Hornor

613 Third Street was dedicated the “Hornor Maritime Center” in honor of Jack Hornor, a dear friend of ABYC. Jack was a naval architect, a marine surveyor, and a mentor to many in the marine industry. He celebrated life on the water as a sailor, with a passion for education passed down from his parents. The ABYC Foundation offers students interested in a marine trade’s education financial assistance through a memorial fund in honor of Jack Hornor.
