IN MEMORY OF JERRY MEERS
Our founder, mentor, father and friend passed in 2012, but Jerry Meers’ moral standards, integrity and values remain the core of our company.
Jerry graduated from Texas Tech University with a Bachelor of Science in 1971. He was a passionate teacher and football coach and touched many students’ lives. Jerry was an entrepreneur, and his love for cotton and agriculture led to the creation of his companies in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s: Meers Pest Solutions, Great Plains Chemicals and Fumigation Services, Meers Cotton Service, and Meers Express.
Due to Jerry’s commitment to excellence, he was called to serve on the following boards: American Museum of Agriculture, South Plains Food Bank, Breedlove Foods, Texas Pest Control Association, Lubbock County Agriculture, and Gilbert Herrera Evangelistic Association.
He served on the governor appointed Texas Community Nutritional Task Force. Jerry also had the honor to be appointed to the Texas Department of Agriculture Advisory Board.
After over 50 years, the bar remains high and the standards for quality and care remain just as lofty. We’ve made it our mission to carry on Jerry’s legacy in the only way he knew how, with quality care and excellent service.
