The American Red Cross, has partnered with Allison Web and Chapel by the Sea,during June to remember and honor one of their church members Jeff Meier.
Jeff, an Electrical Engineer, started "Island Automation" in Emerald Isle in the early 90ss which grew into a successful business now located in Swansboro. Jeff served many businesses throughout North Carolina during his career. Jeff was also committed to serving his church with a big heart and had a laugh that was from the heart along with giving a big bear hug to all. Jeff loved North Carolina and often enjoyed traveling through the state on his Harley. He was greatly loved and admired by his family, friends and coworkers. Jeff was a recipient of blood products during his battle with cancer. We remember his life with this blood drive as we strive to serve others as Jeff did during his well lived life.
