Jack Steele Parker Jack Steele Parker, Founding Aquarium Trustee, 1984–1997

Creating a Legacy for the Ocean


Volunteers play a fundamental role in advancing the Aquarium's mission to inspire conservation of the ocean, and we're deeply grateful to them for so generously sharing their knowledge, time and passion for the ocean. Our board of trustees is no exception, and we wish to recognize founding trustee Jack Parker for his generosity and dedication to the Aquarium.

Jack started his career in 1939 in the shipbuilding industry, and during World War II was in charge of constructing 37 Liberty Ships. He joined General Electric in 1950, and by 1968 he was vice chairman.

A close friend of the Packard family, Jack considered the Aquarium a "world treasure" and was thrilled to see it succeed. Jack also cared deeply about our education programs for children and teachers and wanted to leave a gift that would allow the Aquarium to continue to grow and thrive after his lifetime. Through his very generous bequest, he created a legacy that will allow us to inspire future generations of ocean stewards for years to come.
In his note to Julie Packard on the occasion of our 25th anniversary, Jack wrote, "You have done a magnificent job. Dave was a great longtime friend and I miss him still, but YOU have made the difference in carrying out his family dream. We are all very grateful."

Learn how you can support the Aquarium with a legacy gift, or to let us know you have included the Aquarium in your will or trust, please contact Mary Mullen at mmullen@mbayaq.org or (831) 648-4913. Thank you!
