About The Perry J. Cohen Foundation:
Perry Cohen is a 14-year-old boy who 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.
The Perry J. Cohen Foundation (PJCF) is a 501(c)(3), established by Perry’s mother, Pamela Cohen, and his stepfather, Nicholas Korniloff. The foundation was established to carry on Perry’s legacy and reflect his passions in life, the foundation PJCF is devoted to the advancement of: The ARTS, Environmental, Marine & Wildlife Education and Preservation, Teenage Entrepreneurship, and Boating Safety Education
Because of Perry’s deep love for the sea, a highlight of the foundation’s work will be its annual scholarship program that will recognize deserving students who plan to further their education in the Marine Science and Marine Wildlife fields, as well as the preservation of our coastlines. Perry had recently been accepted into the Environmental Research & Field Studies Academy at Jupiter Community High School. He was one of 30 students chosen out of 500, unfortunately he never got a chance to attend his first class.
