1985 JX1. Discovered 1985 May 13 by C. S. Shoemaker and E. M. Shoemaker at Palomar.

Named in honor of Mark and Colleen Coco and their children Kymberly, Jennifer, Lisa and Travis. An author of astronomical articles and an active observer, Mark has written about his many interests, including astrophotography, the Green Flash, and the relation between astronomy and religion. During his five years as manager of customer relations for Celestron International that began in 1988, Mark helped thousands of new telescope users find their way to enjoy the sky. The discoverers wish to honor the Coco family for their courage and love in dealing with Mark's long illness. (M 25979)
