Memorial Project


Honoring a Navy Officer’s Life and Service

The desire to design, erect, and dedicate a statue of John Connors is deeply rooted in our goal to honor the warrior that he was and the person he embodied. As a team, we seek to commemorate John’s life and service for generations to come. John was a scholar, athlete, and warrior. He was a true humble hero. The memorial will be installed in John’s hometown of Scituate, Massachusetts.

Nationally prominent Artist Chas Fagan of Charlotte, NC has been selected to create an original piece of sculpture to depict LTJG John Connors USN. From photos and printed material, he has created a concept that embodies the wishes of the Connors family and our committee. Sketches and concept drawings have brought us to a point where we now have a proposed rendering of the larger-than-life-size statue we will produce. We will unveil the memorial with the Connors family, the Navy SEAL community, and all of those whose lives he continues to touch.

Memorial Concept

Chas Fagan has created a concept for a statue to honor LTJG John Connors that embodies the signature elements of the US Navy SEAL Teams of the late 1980s. From period gear and the pose of a Leader in motion, the committee is honored to present the sketches, concept drawings, and painting of our proposed Memorial Statue. Cast in bronze standing on a solid granite base, this statue will be a touchstone for all who defend this nation and its ideals. In 2024, we will dedicate a statue with the Connors Family, John’s SEAL Team 4 and BUD/S classmates, and the band of friends and classmates that he gathered around him.
