Celebration of the Life of Jack O'Neill

 

The family of Jack O’Neill, O’Neill Wetsuits and O’Neill Surf Shop would like to extend a heartfelt "Thank You", to all who have reached out with thoughts, prayers, sympathy, remembrances, stories and pictures since the passing of legendary waterman Jack O’Neill on Friday, June 2, 2017.

In response, we would like to invite everyone to join in a paddle out and day long celebration of Jack’s life and adventures at Jack’s favorite beach, Pleasure Point, in Santa Cruz County on Sunday, July 9, 2017, starting at 11a.m.

Memorial contributions in support of Jack’s love of the oceans may be made at oneillseaodyssey.org.
