Mark Grissom

Mark Grissom is the youngest son of Gus Grissom and was born at the Bryan Air Force Base hospital on December 30, 1953. A graduate of Clear Creek High School in the suburban Houston area, Mark was offered an ROTC scholarship to attend Texas A&M, but instead chose Purdue University, his father's alma mater.  For a time after graduation, Mark flew professionally, but eventually he became an air-traffic controller at Will Rogers World Airport in Oklahoma City. Mark and his wife, Kay, still live in the Oklahoma City area where Mark continues to do air-traffic control work on a consulting basis. Like his father, Mark is an avid auto racing fan, and as a teenager, competed in an autocross event on the runways of today's RELLIS Campus.
