JoJo Hernandez

Executive Sous Chef

Chef Hernandez is a true asset to the Club. He began his culinary career in 1997 at the nearby Ponte Vedra Inn & Club. He worked his way through the first class kitchen for only four years before taking the Sous Chef position. He joined us at the Florida Yacht Club as our Sous Chef in 2001 and was promoted to Executive Sous Chef five years later. Chef Hernandez helps things run smoothly as he is involved in every aspect of operations including the Pirate's Den and Events. Jo Jo is also the creator of the Facebook page Feed Your Creation consisting of amazing pictures of his delectable edible dishes. With his knowledge of the club and strong work ethic, Chef Hernandez has been invaluable to the overall Member dining experience!
