At DooGooders, we think of customer as a dirty word. To us, the people that let us in their home, allow us to know their children (two- and four-legged) and support our mission to doo good feel more like family. This past week, we said good bye to one of our DooGooders family, Jason DiMercurio. Many of you may know Jason from his work at Avera McKennan or on KSOO. We know him best as Cole and Tucker’s dad, his two pups that made him beam with pride, especially on a cold, January afternoon when he made sure Cole left us a fresh present! Or just kisses from Tucker, no matter the weather! The DooCrew will always remember that no matter the time, usually 1 a.m.-ish, whenever we mailed out a bill, Jason would right back instantly with a virtual smile and a joke about our crappy job.
Jason gave his time to help animals in our community, even adopting Cole and Tucker from Second Chance Rescue Center, as he told us in Spot’s Spotlight. Also, the Sioux Falls Business Journal recently profiled Jason for his dedication to his degree, job and community.
Jason exemplified dooing good. He never missed an opportunity to doo that with a smile, a kind word or a laugh that let you know how much he cared. Jason, thank you for being part of our DooGooders family.
