Ken Jacuzzi – Inspiration of Jacuzzi has Died aged 75

“It is with great sadness that we have learned of Ken’s passing.  He lived his life with grace and great dignity, and was an honourable humanitarian. He was the inspiration of not only the Jacuzzi® Brand, but an entire industry.  Our deepest sympathies go out to his wife and extended family.”

Bob Rowan, CEO of Jacuzzi

At the age of two, Ken Jacuzzi contracted juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, leaving him bound to a wheelchair for most of his life. Told that he would not live to see his third birthday, Ken’s mother took him home and his father, Candido, invented a pump to give his son pain-relieving hydrotherapy treatments at home. That hydrotherapy pump led to what is known as the Jacuzzi® Brand today.

Ken Jacuzzi had traveled the world, teaching over three continents. He had an MBA, spoke four languages, patented several inventions, painted portraits, and also had a severe disability.
