With great sadness, we at C J International are informing you of the sudden death of one of our founders, Curtis (Curt) R. Perry on November 25, 2020. He was 74.
Curt was born in Baltimore and lived here for many years. He was a graduate of Loyola High School and was proud of his Jesuit education. Shortly after graduation from the University of Baltimore, he joined the United States Marine Corp. After an honorable discharge, he began his career with the U.S. Customs Service.
Curt established C J in 1987, a few years after he left the U.S. Customs Service in Baltimore, where he served as Chief Inspector and Regional Director for the Mid-Atlantic Region. As a Customs Broker, he served on the Private Sector Port Committee for many years and was a strong advocate for the Port of Baltimore.
He will be missed and mourned by all his C J partners and the entire C J team, but especially by his wife of 53 years, Elaine Perry, and his daughters, Dr. Jill Brinkman and Cindi Perry.
