Mari Hess, Sales Associate

Mari Hess, Sales AssociateSales Area:
Formerly Northern California, Lake Tahoe/Reno and Northern Utah (SLC Area)

About Mari:
Mari provided exceptional service in her territory since she was first hired in early 1994 (our 1st hire!), and she was well known throughout the Independent Pet Retailer Community, as "the hardest working rep in the business". 

On January 3rd, 2021, our Company and all of us at JWA were devastated to get the news that our friend and co-worker Mari Hess had passed away suddenly in her home in Oakland, CA.  Words cannot adequately express our sorrow and pain for the loss of Mari, and she is the type of person that will be extremely difficult to replace in our lives; she was truly "one of a kind"...  It's so sad at these times to reduce someone's life down to just a few minutes of time to read a few words and watch a video (shown below), but I ask all of you to please do take the time, whether you knew Mari well or even just met her once or twice; she lived life to the fullest and would still take the time for all of you any and every day...

Take time to make time for others in honor of Mari Hess' memory! 
Sincerely (with a broken heart),
Jerry Wilson, President
