Jabet Wade tagged in ‘40 under 40’ feature in boating magazine
Jabet Morgan Wade, manager of Pontiac Cove Marina, was named to one of the “40 under 40” boating-industry leaders featured in the June/July issue of Boating Industry Magazine. The 40 profiled subjects, all under the age of 40, are described as “industry trendsetters [who] stand out from their boating peers.”
Wade, who lives in Pontiac with her husband, Matt, and their two children, told the magazine her grandparents, Joe and Alice Morgan, bought the marina in 1964. Jabet’s parents, Tim and Johnna Luna Morgan, bought it from them in 1978.
Her first job at the marina, she said, was “picking up trash and counting minnows.”
Wade also manages the family’s Lake Harbour Resort and the campground adjoining the marina. She holds a journalism degree from the University of Missouri and was recently elected to the Gainesville school board.
