Wilbur Jones




Wilbur Jones is an amazing man! Truly an inspiration! Of course his experiences with the 1935 Labor Day Hurricane were beyond epic (185mph + winds, 15 foot surge, surviving in a box car with a two foot air bubble on top), but his 101 years on this earth are so much bigger than this historic storm. He was friends with Arnold Palmer, knew Robert Trent Jones (Bobby Jones), flew in bombers over Europe during WWII, survived the Great Miami 1926 Hurricane in Coral Gables, and so much more... What a great day!
