Jasper Engines & Transmissions mourns the loss of Robert G. “Bob” Boeglin of Santa Claus, Indiana. Boeglin passed away suddenly the morning of July 6, 2021, at his home. He was 68 years old.
Boeglin was born in Huntingburg, Indiana, on August 2, 1952. He married Deborah Cannon on September 23, 1978, in Illinois.
Boeglin was a retired Jasper Associate after 42 years of service to the company. He initially served as Chicago Branch Manager for several years until returning to Jasper, Indiana, as a regional VP. He then founded and led the company's National Account program.
“In the beginning, he was a one-man band, traveling across the country prospecting and building that business,” said Jasper Chairman/CEO Doug Bawel. “Bob was one who forged great friendships with his customers which continued into his retirement.”
“Bob started Jasper’s National Account program in the mid 90’s and grew it substantially until his retirement,” said Jasper President Zach Bawel. “He developed programs with most package delivery and utility companies, airlines, and other large fleets during his leadership. Bob loved life and lived it to the fullest.”
Two of Boeglin’s three children are employed with Jasper, including Lindsey Mattingly (Inside Sales) and Brad Boeglin (New Product Development Group Leader).
