Farewell, Trader Jon...
By Bill Sleigh
Trader Jon Martin Weissman, the proprietor of the famed Naval Aviator hangout Trader Jon's for nearly half a century, died Friday 2/18 at Sacred Heart Hospital in Pensacola. He was 84. Trader is survived by his wife, Jackii, his daughters Cheri and Dahl, and by his thousands of admirers around the world. His bar was a legend among Naval Aviators training at nearby Pensacola Naval Air Station. Weissman never returned to work after a stroke in 1997, and his family has been trying to find a buyer for the famous establishment. A group of Navy veterans has been raising money in an effort to purchase and preserve the bar. Our condolences to his friends and family. (Thanks to Bill Sleigh for this info.
