OCEAN CITY — Mark Jamieson is the new operations chief of the Ocean City Beach Patrol, officials said Saturday.

Jamieson succeeds Tom Mullineaux, who retired in November after 51 years with the Beach Patrol.

Jamieson, 34, graduated from Ocean City High School and Montclair State University. He works as a physical education teacher and swimming coach at Egg Harbor Township High School.

He was one of two candidates Mullineaux recommended. The other was Brian Booth.

“I’m confident that Mark will maintain the (Beach Patrol’s) impeccable record of safety, its service to the community and its proud tradition of success in competition,” Mayor Jay Gillian said.

Mullineaux’s salary was $41,800. Jamieson will be paid $30,000, city officials said.

The Beach Patrol had 170 on staff last year.

During the height of the summer tourism season, the city had 43 guarded beaches in 2016.
