Introducing your new Commodore: Maureen Jacobson

2015 - 2016

Maureen grew up in Closter, New Jersey, and attended Endicott Jr. College and New York University, where she majored in marketing and then psychology. Since the age of 15, she wanted to live in NYC which she ultimately did for many years. Maureen worked in personnel and then after landing a lucky break, she began modeling, mainly for magazines and catalogues. She met her first husband and moved back to New Jersey where her son, Darren was born.

When life changed, she decided to move to Boca Raton where her parents had retired. At this point she started working for an executive recruiting company. Another company was looking to expand so she and her best friend at the time opened up an office for recruiting high tech executives. Life was great but then got even better when she was reacquainted with a family friend, Ben Jacobson. That was it for the both of them and now 25 years later….

Maureen and Ben and her son boated many years and devoted a lot of time to the Corinthians. Ben was Commodore from 1996-1997. They are the FIRST COUPLE to be Commodores and are very proud of that fact!

They have 11 grandchildren and love their families! Maureen’s grandson, Darren David now lives in the area. Maureen spent many years raising funds for a few favorite charities. She was President and Chairman for HANDY, which helps abused children now in foster care. She also was on the Boards of the Royal Dames of Cancer Research for breast and prostate cancer and on PAWS- Pets Are Worth Saving. Maureen was honored as Woman of the Year for Broward County in 1997 and also Woman of Style and Substance in the same year.

Maureen is “sort of” putting her new business of selling High Fashion Jewelry on hold. She is honored to be the Commodore of the best yacht club there is! She feels we all are very lucky people!



Introducing your new Commodore:  Leslie Baron

2016 - 2017

Leslie Baron (Commodore), prior to reconnecting with Michael back in 2003, Leslie’s only boating experience were vacations aboard cruise ships. However, Michael quickly got her involved and taught her how to be a first mate while boating in the Boston area. By the end of her first boating season, she realized that the role of first mate was far more than merely wearing nautical clothing and she liked it. For the next few summers, they boated throughout the New England coastline and Long Island Sound, along with a trip throughout New York City harbor and up into the Hudson. Passing by the Statue of Liberty for the first time on her own boat was something Leslie will always remember.

The Barons moved to Florida in November, 2007, where they resided on their 35’ motor yacht, "How Lucky," docked at the Club’s marina. Within a few months, Leslie and Michael joined the Corinthians and the fun hasn’t stopped for them since. Meeting fellow boaters and making new friends became an important part of their Floridian lifestyle. No longer snowbirds, Leslie resides in Lighthouse Point year round and has become a well seasoned first mate, not only cruising around the southern Florida and Bahamian waters, but also all along the east coast.

Although raised and educated in the Boston area, Leslie lived 30 years in the Los Angeles area, where her daughter, Amanda, currently lives and is a fiction author, screenplay writer and movie director. Leslie has several years of administrative banking experience, as well as being a director for the world’s largest RVing association, although she has never actually gone RV’ing. Leslie feels honored to be your newest Commodore and in addition to her Commodore Cruise to the Panama Canal, she is working hard to create fun and exciting boating and land activities during the Corinthian’s golden anniversary year. She hopes you will join her in "achieving the extraordinary" , 50 years of LPYC Corinthian fun.
