DD-714 Plank Owner, Onboard 1945

Commissioned Officer, photo not available
LT John B. Jessup, USN, Ret., Photo Not Available

Sadly, when we sent a letter to LT Jessup to offer him an honorary membership as a PLANK OWNER, we received a letter back from his wife. She informed us that LT Jessup had passed away on April 26, 2006. He is now an honorary member in a far better association than we could ever offer.
