• Notice of Tom Gagliano’s Passing

    by  • May 7, 2019 • News

    Tom Gagliano, founder and former Chairman of the Jersey Shore Partnership, recently passed away. Tom recognized the need for legislative support for shore protection and, through his unique ability to bring together elected officials and corporate leaders, Tom established the non-partisan, not-for-profit Jersey Shore Partnership in 1992 to seek stable funding on the state and federal levels for coastal protection. All of us who treasure our Jersey Shore beaches are indebted to Tom Gagliano’s vision and leadership in advocating successfully for a dedicated Shore Protection Fund.


    The Jersey Shore Partnership is an advocate of initiatives that are unique and important to the Jersey Shore coastal communities with an emphasis on shore protection and beach replenishment. The Partnership takes an active role in New Jersey’s economy including tourism, coastal resources, vital infrastructure, education and emergency preparedness.
