Captain Wayne Hasson of Naples, FL, passed away on January 17 at Avow Hospice at age 70.  Wayne was a family man, Marine, scuba diver extraordinaire and instructor, boat captain, pilot, world traveler and true pioneer in the scuba diving industry.

“Mentor, innovator, dedicated family man, lover of all things oceans. Wayne Hasson was so many things to so many that it would not be possible to list them all. His passion for the scuba diving world was clearly evident to everyone that met him. In the 36 years with Aggressor, he never once wavered in his dedication to the company and it’s staff. We are all blessed to have crossed paths with him. May his memory and accomplishments be remembered forever” says CEO & Friend, Wayne B. Brown.

In his memory, the family has set up the Sea of Change Foundation, Wayne Hasson Scholarship Fund to help fund a Master’s level educational scholarship to an individual pursuing a lifetime career in ocean conservation.  https://seaofchange.com/donate-2
