Scholarship Description

Martin Weissman and his wife Jacki moved to Pensacola, Florida. In 1953, they bought a small tavern they named “Trader Jon’s” and started a legend. His countless friends showered him with aviation memorabilia that transformed Trader Jon’s into an aviation shrine. A staunch supporter of Naval Aviation and the city of Pensacola, he was the Blue Angels’ biggest fan. Mr. Weissman is remembered for his unique contribution to Naval Aviation. He died in February 2000 at the age of 84.
