Vote for Boomer T. Cannoneer

Jefferson Community College (JCC) is seeking community support for its mascot, Boomer T. Cannoneer, in the State University of New York (SUNY) “Mascot Madness” competition which will determine New York State’s favorite SUNY mascot.

In its inaugural year in 2021, Boomer made it to the final round beating Hudson Valley Community College’s “Victor Viking,” Stony Brook University’s “Wolfie the SeaWolf,” Fulton Montgomery Community College’s “Reggie Raider,” and 2019’s Champion, “Rip Van Winkle” from Columbia Greene Community College. Let’s do it again and this year, claim the title!   

Fans/supporters, JCC alumni, students, faculty and staff, and members of the community (everyone!) are urged to cast a vote for Boomer once a day at A confirmation step via email address submits each vote. The bracket-style friendly mascot competition begins March 22, 2022 with 32 college mascots randomly divided into four SUNY regions and ranked by the number of athletics teams each mascot represents.  

Boomer, a bald eagle in a military cannoneer uniform, was “hatched” in February 2021 and began his “rookie year” at JCC. Boomer has appeared at various community events such as the Jefferson County Dairy Parade, Watertown Rapids’ home games and on JCC’s social media accounts.  

The winner of the SUNY Mascot Contest will be announced in April 2022. Check JCC’s website,, for announcements and/or follow the College on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and TikTok.

Thank you to all who have supported Boomer so far. Let’s help Boomer bring the title to Watertown and JCC!
