Company Snapshot

Jack Cheja recently passed away, but we will always remember him. Cheja was an Endeavor Entrepreneur but more than that, he was a member of the Endeavor family and an outstanding person.

During Endeavor’s selection process, we always ask entrepreneurs: “When you get older and look back in life, which would be your greatest achievements?”

Jack replied: “To have a loving family and a successful company.” With humility and a contagious smile, he not only achieved his goal but became an inspiration.

Rest in peace, Jack Cheja, and all our best thoughts for the Cheja family.
