The Coast Guard cutter SPAR has a new commander. On Friday Lieutenant Commander Douglas Jannusch relieved Michele Schallip as the cutter’s commanding officer.
Shallip has been at the helm of the 225-foot buoy tender since 2011 and will now serve as chief of waterways management for the Coast Guard’s 13th District.
Jannusch comes to Kodiak from the Bahamas where he served as a liaison officer. He was responsible for supporting all regional Coast Guard missions and worked closely with the U.S. Ambassador, among other things. He has a bachelor of the arts from the University of California in Irvine, and a master of international policy and practice from George Washington University in Washington, D.C.
Jannusch took over as the SPAR’s commanding officer during a formal change of command ceremony on Friday.
