Jersey Surf Jersey Surf is honoring the memory of longtime brass staff member Gabe Gulino, who passed away this week after a long illness. "Gabe was the kind of instructor whose wisdom and experience transcended the competition field," said Executive Director Bob Jacobs. "He was a father, a friend and a mentor to many corps members and staff members alike, and he was a shining example of the 'share the love' philosophy that we all try to embrace as a part of the Jersey Surf organization."
