It’s with great sadness that we at CEAVCO Audio Visual share the news that CEAVCO’s founder, Jack Emerson, passed away on July 11 after a courageous five-month battle with cancer. He was 90 years old.
Jack was a man of integrity and exacting standards who believed in service, accountability, and a job well done. He was also one of the warmest, most genuine, and most compassionate people you would ever meet.
Jack built CEAVCO in 1961 with the goals of creating a great workplace and providing exceptional customer support. He developed a lifelong reputation for honoring his vision and doing the right thing. He was immensely proud of CEAVCO, our team, our clients and partners, and the work we do.
Jack lived life with great passion and joy. This time last year, at age 89, Jack rode his bike 50+ miles a week and skied 30 days. Last year he also took his family to Sweden to visit the land where his great-grandparents farmed before emigrating to the United States.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Jack’s wife, Ann Daley; to Jack’s children, Sara, Lisa, Nina, John, and CEAVCO President Matt Emerson; and to their entire family. We will miss him.
