Tribute to fallen team member Joey Weaver

Last week we at Global-E lost one of our great engineers. Joey Weaver was one of those types of hands-on engineers that also made it nice to be around. He always had a bit of fun, a candid view or joke to go along with the efforts of designing and building the vehicles. Three years ago he started his relationship with us by being one of the first engineering students to take on testing the company’s vehicles at our Energy Conversion & Conservation Center wind tunnel lab at UNO. This then led to a position and specific engineering projects, including an intellectual property related project that he headed. Of course Joey was never the type to just work on one project at a time. He needed other things to do, more action.  Well, this in turn led to more jokes and fun for the rest of us too.

 He will surely be missed, a loss in all of our hearts. But, the talents that he had and shared are displayed in many of the components on E1 and G1. His accomplishments will live on not only in the vehicles we are creating, but in our hearts and memories as we put pen to paper, pencil to velum and electrons to the computer; Joey will be there.

 Please pray for him and his family as we all move forward without him here.

-Team Global-E

    He is in our prayers. We heard that a scholorship fund is being established at UNO in his name. Please post something once that is established.

    Sincerely,
    One of your vendors.

    • This is true that we are working on establishing such a fund in Joey’s name for students at University of New Orleans. We will definitely post updates on that. Thanks for following Global-E and thanks for your kind words.
