Over the weekend, an illness took the life of someone who means a lot to our company. Tim Davis, jācapps’ and Jacobs Media’s “digital guy” for numerous years, passed away at the age of 49. Even though he parted ways with us 2+ years ago, the impact he left on both companies will last forever.
Bob Kernen, our COO, had this to say about Tim:
“I only met Tim Davis twice, but he is a big part of the reason I work for jācapps today. As you see if you read Fred Jacobs’ blog post about him today, jācapps was Tim’s idea. He was one of those guys who when people asked ‘Why?’ Tim’s response was usually, ‘Why not?’ I’ve always had a special place in my heart for those ‘Why not’ guys. So, all of us at jācapps want to thank Tim for saying to Paul and Fred, ‘Why not?’ I think what we’ve done since then have proven him right, and I think he’d like that.”
In his blog today, Fred Jacobs sums up how integral Tim was to both Jacobs Media and jācapps.
In his honor, his wife Kathy will be forming an education trust for their two children, Xander and Alyssa, and we’ll get that information to you as soon as it becomes available.
There are many great people to thank for the creation of jācapps and one of those people is definitely Tim Davis.
Thank you Tim, you will be missed.
