Alumni Spotlight

Jeffery Hazell '83 B.S.
As a kid, Jeffery helped out on his father’s Massachusetts lobster boat, and today he owns Bar Harbor Lobster Company, Florida’s largest distributor of New England seafood. While studying hotel and restaurant management at the University of New Haven, he interned at a Disney World restaurant, and this fall his company announced a new food service venture with the resort. But for Hazell, success is just as much about paying it forward as it is about coming full circle. Read Jeffery's story and learn more about his dedication to UNH.
