The End of an Era

Today marks the end of an era in the marketing and advertising world here in Idaho, for this is the last day that you'll see Jeremy Chase as a member of the Drake Cooper staff.

Jeremy is packing up and heading to Salt Lake City, Utah, and is on to bigger and better things, as they say.

But before his takes one final bow at the end of the day, I wanted to take a moment, on behalf of the entire marketing and advertising industry in and around the State of Idaho, to say one simple thing:

Thank you Jeremy for all that you have done.

In a world where change happens at incredible speed, Jeremy has been a constant presence. He has been with Drake Cooper for well over a decade, and has helped to shepherd both clients and agency through the highs and lows that have come along with it. A true professional in every sense of the word, Jeremy has been a tremendous asset to the agency, and his departure will leave some very, very large shoes to fill.

I'm sure there will be many toasts made inside (and outside) the walls of Drake Cooper today, stories shared, and maybe even a tear or two shed. But let me take this opportunity to add my own thoughts...

Jeremy, you're a class act in every sense. You've been an excellent ambassador for your agency and this industry, and you will most certainly be missed.

Jeremy is one of a kind and will be sorely missed by us and his clients. Yes, we will be doing some Karaoke tonight and telling some good stories - but at the same time we will be wishing him well in this great opportunity to further his account management and tourism marketing career. He leaves behind a great legacy at the agency - one of always putting the client first, being a great team player and bringing a few smiles along the way.

The agency house band, Sons of Larry, is NOT breaking up, regardless of rumors in the media, but the North American tour may be delayed while Jeremy gets settled.

J Chase - we love ya pal. Don't forget your humble upbringings back here in Idaho and go knock em dead in Utah.
