Jaco Pastorius Commemorative Stamp

This is a petition to the Citizens' Stamp Advisory Committee for recommendation to the Postmaster General that Jaco Pastorius be honored with a commemorative postage stamp to be issued by the U.S. Postal Service. Pastorius is known as The World's Greatest Bass Player for his innovative techniques and challenging compositions.


  • Eddie Bell If anyone deserves a stamp in music it is Jaco. The original electric bass player that created the tone and set the standard for everyone to follow. A true pioneer, I love his playing!

  • Massimiliano De Pascalis Turin, Italy

  • Carlo Berto Jaco Pastorius was, in my mind, one of the greatest musicians of all time.
    If anyone ever deserved a stamp to honor him, it is Jaco.
    Please give him serious consideration.
    Thank you.
