Keeping Life IN[FOCUS]
Monday morning, IN[FOCUS] co-founder Julian St. Pierre passed away in his sleep.
One of our industry’s most visionary minds, Julian’s influence extends into hundreds of businesses. He gave generously to see others succeed.
He always made others feel welcome with his gregarious personality and positive attitude. He was truly doing what he was meant to do for his time upon this earth.
Julian was also one of the hardest workers one could meet. On a podcast after fleeing New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, taking whatever work he and Terry could find, he proclaimed “if we can be of any help to you (the listeners), we will come and work for you. We do NOT want a free handout. We want to earn every penny we take.”
But with the passion he exuded for his work and in bettering others, it all pales in comparison to his love for Terry. Above all accolades and all the “hats” he wore, his most meaningful role was that of a loving husband.
For all these examples, and for pages and pages more, he will be missed…dearly.
It has been an honor to work with him, but more of a pleasure to be his friend.
During this difficult time, we need to take care of our own, and after the funeral, we will get back to the business of IN[FOCUS].
We would love for you to contribute your stories about Julian in the comments section below.
Hug the ones you love. Keep life IN[FOCUS],
Jones and Don
