JCOF Membership Application


The Jaguar Club of Florida (JCOF) was founded in 1977 by a small group of enthusiasts who had in common the love of ownership, operation, and maintenance of the world’s most beautiful automobiles – Jaguars. From that modest start with a handful of participants, JCOF has grown to over 200 active members (and co-members). JCOF is proudly affiliated with Jaguar Clubs of North America, Inc. (JCNA), an organization comprised of more than 60 clubs throughout the United States, Mexico, and Canada.

Membership in JCOF automatically includes membership in JCNA, subscriptions to both the award-winning JCOF JAGWire newsletter and the JCNA Jaguar Journal (which are delivered bi-monthly), discounts on new cars, parts and service at Jaguar Orlando, discount on insurance from Hagerty Insurance, deep discounts on JCNA Shoppe purchases and Jaguar Heritage Certificates, discounts from other commercial suppliers such as SNG Barratt, and access to the JCNA Tool Loan program.  JCOF members participate in a myriad of events including driving venues such as tours, rallies, and slaloms; monthly dinner meetings, Holiday and Summer Parties, annual Concours d’Elegance, and other “pop-up” events such as car shows, Cars and Coffee get-togethers, and Breakfasts with other car clubs.  We encourage family participation and many members bring children and friends to our events.

In addition to the newsletter, we communicate with members about local news and event information through electronic mail updates, this website, and FaceBook  After joining JCOF, you will receive your membership card from JCNA.  You also are welcomed to the club with a JCOF name tag after attending your first function. If you have any questions regarding membership, please contact the JCOF Membership Chairman: Steve Handler at or (352) 751-6760. 

You can also call the JCNA hotline at 1-888-CLUBJAG (258-2524).
