Jack Hornor celebrated life on the water as a sailor. He was the founder and owner of Marine Survey & Design Company, a naval architect, a marine surveyor, and a mentor to many in the marine industry. Jack had a passion for education that was passed down from his parents Dorothy and Audra, who were career school teachers. The Hornor Maritime Center is dedicated in memory of our friend Jack Hornor.
