The New York Jets have inducted their 2020 Fan Hall of Fame class with four new names that’ll go up on the wall.

The usual suspects are easily seen when walking the halls of the Atlantic Health Training Center in Florham Park, NJ. All-time greats such as Joe Namath, Curtis Martin, Don Maynard, Wayne Chrebet and many more appear everywhere.

Interestingly, so do many of the all-time New York Jets fans.

No, Ira from Staten Island’s face doesn’t appear on any wall in outlandish fashion, but the Jets organization makes sure to pay homage to its fans. The Jets Fan Hall of Fame saw its first class inducted in 2017, and now, the 2020 class has been announced.

Robert Cozzarelli, Rob Fulmer “Jetman,” Naomi Lindower and Dennis Riehman are the four inductees who’ll see their names placed on the wall. The team, with help from Olivia Landis and Nick Mangold, made sure to spread the news as intimately as possible (as far as 2020 is concerned).

Cozzarelli has been a season ticket holder since 1988 and has been a fan since the Namath days. Fulmer is the guy often captured on camera in the green cape with the “Jetman” license plate draped around his neck. He’s been a season ticket holder since 1992.

Lindower is the recruiter of the group, as she inherited her Jets love from her father Sy. Riehman’s Jets roots go all the way back to 1965 where he attended an intersquad scrimmage at Baker Field. Reihman has been a season ticket holder since 1984.
