    2020 Perry J. Cohen Foundation Camp Scholarship Application

    Fourteen-year-old Perry Cohen went missing at sea on July 24, 2015.  He was last seen leaving the Jupiter, Florida inlet on his good friend's boat.  The United States Coast Guard (USCG) conducted one of the largest Search and Rescue (SAR) missions in modern day history to find Perry and his friend.  After an exhaustive eight-day, 55,000 square nautical mile search, the United States Coast Guard (USCG) suspended their efforts at sunset on July 31, 2015.

    In his honor, Perry’s mother, Pamela Cohen, and his stepfather, Nicholas Korniloff, established The Perry J. Cohen Foundation (PJCF) a 501(c)(3). The mission of the foundation is to create awareness and education for all individuals around the safe enjoyment of recreational boating, fishing, and water sports. Because of Perry’s deep love for the sea, a highlight of the foundation’s work will be focused on the preservation of marine life and our coastlines.
