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.
Medix is a company that manufactures, imports and distributes medical devices to hospitals and medical clinics in more than 70 countries worldwide. As the first Latin American company to target the neonatal care market, Medix specializes in neonatal incubators. Jack and Diego inaugurated a state of the art production plant in 2010.
In October 2010, Medix was acquired by Natus for US$14 million.
