Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

To CRA Members, 
It is with my deepest regret that I inform you of the passing of Jack McGinnis on August 1, 2018, after a long illness. Jack was born on November 4th, 1952, in Pasadena, California, and is survived by his son, Andrew McGinnis. Jack's start in the rental industry was with Multiquip in the 1980s, where he stayed until 1994. He went into business for himself, starting Meridian Pacific in 1996. Jack was a CRA Member since 1997 and was a strong supporter of CRA, actively recruiting new members. He represented several CRA Associate Members at CRA tradeshows. He served as president of Greater LA/Orange Territory from July 2006 to September 2016, and we have Jack to thank for organizing the many GLAO holiday parties held at Clearman’s North Woods Inn.
At Jack's request, services will not be held. Contributions may be made in his memory to:
West Side German Shepherd Rescue at: 
Or to CRA’s Rental Services Industry Foundation by visiting:
Condolences may be sent to:
The McGinnis Family
6120 Camellia Ave.
Temple City, CA  91780

He will be greatly missed.

Dale Blackwell, Executive Director
