NAPERVILLE, IL--It is with profound sadness and heavy hearts that Spoiled By Technology announced the passing of Jeremiah M. Meyer (Jeremy), a partner, virtual son, brother, and friend.
Jeremy joined Spoiled By Technology (SBT) as an intern in June 2003 providing inside sales and technical support. Graduating from Columbia College Chicago with a Bachelors Degree in Audio Engineering, Jeremy then became a technical sales and training associate with SBT.
Jeremy embodied the passion that is heard of quite often in this industry. In January of 2005 Jeremy accepted responsibility for training and development of our franchise operations and select independent dealers in Illinois and Wisconsin. His exemplary performance was recognized -- on a national level -- by manufacturers, dealers, contractors, and consultants. In November of 2007, Jeremy was offered and accepted partnership in the rep firm, a mere formality as he was always considered a partner.
Jeremy passed on Saturday, June 7th of natural but undetermined causes. "While continuing this journey without Jeremiah is unimaginable at this point, we approach our decisions based on what would Jeremiah do? says Barb Paulsen, president and CFO of SBT. "Jeremiah would say, let's rock, we got this, we're not going out like that! We will continue our mission, honoring his memory."
Final services were held in Joliet, IL on Thursday, June 12th. Representatives from QSC Audio, Costa Mesa, CA; Audix USA, Portland, OR; Full Compass Systems, Guitar Center Management, Big Time Audio, AudioLines, Hix Brothers Music and many others were on hand to bid final farewells to this astounding young man.
A memorial fund has been established, "The Jeremiah M. Meyer Memorial Fund" to support his 7 month old daughter, Danielle Elise Meyer and his life partner Amanda Lynn Valentino. Please contact any associate at Spoiled By Technology 630.357.7742 for further details.
