The owners of Skipper’s Pier, John & Gail Hiser and Buzz & Carol Hefti in collaboration with Ray Greenstreet of Greenstreet Gardens are excited to announce David Rosage and fiancé Jessica LeCronier as the new operators of Skipper’s Pier as of May 1, 2012.
David is currently the owner/operator of several small businesses including the Ice Shack, the Dog House and Green Haven Gardens in Pasadena. David earned his Bachelor of Science in Business administration at Stevenson University and his Masters of Business Administration at Loyola College of Maryland. Jessica is a trained Sous and Pastry Chef currently working at the Shanty Grille (formerly known as the Crab Shanty) in Ellicott City, while also owning and operating her own cake and confection company. She earned her Bachelor’s degree in food service with a minor in baking and pastry at Johnson and Wales University in Charlotte, NC. Jessica won a full-ride scholarship to the university by placing third in a national pastry competition while a senior in high school.
Skipper’s Pier has survived several incarnations through time and storms. It was originally an Oyster Shack in the 1950’s, with several owners along the way prior to the Hiser’s and Hefti’s buying it in January 2007. Affectionately known as “Skipper’s”, this gem is nestled on Rockhold Creek, reached by land or by boat, and is the go-to spot for excellent seafood enjoyed indoors or out.. Skipper’s is the ideal setting to watch a gorgeous Chesapeake Bay sunset and enjoy friends and family.
The Hisers and Hefti’s thank John Kozik for his excellent job of running “Skippers” for four years and wish him all he best in his future endeavors.
