Jim Myers passed away on May 4, 2005, due to complications from colon cancer. Jim served in a number of roles during his 10 years at Dri-Eaz, most recently as Education and Product Development Manager. He was a certified IICRC WRT and ASD instructor, and also contributed his leadership on many water damage restoration industry committees.
Jim joined the restoration community in 1986 as the owner/operator of his own carpet cleaning and restorative drying business in western Washington. He preferred the restoration side of the business, and in 1994 decided to sell his firm to join the team at Dri-Eaz to specialize in restorative drying equipment and education.
In the last five years, Jim dedicated himself to improving the quality of restoration education in the United States and around the world. Through his education activities, many restoration professionals had the opportunity to work with Jim and benefit from his experience, wisdom, and infectious devotion to providing the highest level of restorative drying education.
