Candido Jacuzzi
Birth: Feb. 24, 1903
Death: Oct. 7, 1986

Inventor. Born in Casarsa della Delizia, Pordenone, Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Candido emigrated with his family to Berkeley, California. In the early 1900s the seven Jacuzzi brothers worked together and invented the first enclosed cabin monoplane. This airplane carried mail and ferried passengers from the San Francisco Bay Area to Yosemite National Park. In 1956 they invented a portable hydrotherapy pump, the J-300, which was sold to hospitals and schools. Necessity being the mother of invention, the J-300 was created to relieve infant Kenny's (family member) rheumatoid arthritis. In 1979 the family sold it's business to Kidde Inc and all family members retired or left the business except Roy Jacuzzi (a third generation family member) who invented what we today call the Jacuzzi. (bio by: Megan)
