The Maritime Workers Emergency Medical Fund


Dear Maritime Industry Friends:

While battling his own personal challenge with lung disease, Jerry Nagel dreamed of the creation of an emergency relief fund for people employed in the maritime industry. After a long and courageous struggle including numerous medical procedures, operations and a lung transplant in 2012 Jerry tragically lost his life.

In addition to being the recipient of the 2011 Breakbulk Lifetime Achievement Award, and being named 2012 Maritime Person of the Year by the Greater Houston Port Bureau, Jerry put his family and the best interest of others first! Jerry is remembered for his compassion and dedication to maritime education and his contributions to the Houston Maritime Museum. Jerry found the most fulfilling experiences in life were those where he was doing, creating and building. That's when you saw him at his best. Jerry’s philosophy was, “say what you can do, then do what you say.”

Jerry’s dream to establish a fund to assist maritime employees and their family with financial expenses not covered by insurance during catastrophic illness or unexpected injury has become a reality.

The Maritime Workers Emergency Medical Fund
is now operating as a 501(c)(3) and being managed by a board of maritime industry executives dedicated to the fulfillment of Jerry’s dream! The organization is dedicated to fulfilling his dream by working together with industry partners to assist maritime workers of the Texas Gulf Coast in times of need.

You can help the organization by considering a sponsorship and by making plans to attend an upcoming fundraising event. Corporate Sponsors will receive recognition in advertisements, flyers & signage at the event.

A Maritime Workers Hero $3,000.00

Commodore Sponsorship - $ 1,000.00 Admiral Sponsorship -$ 750.00
Commander Sponsorship - $ 500.00

“The people that work in the maritime industry need an organization that can provide limited financial assistance to them and their family during major catastrophic medical emergencies.” - Jerry Nagel, 2010
