It was 3 years ago today that my dear friend, Don Fergus, posted his last few jokes on social media for the very last time. Oddly enough, one of them was about an Irish Funeral / St. Paddy’s Day joke.
Voodoo Chile Sauces went from being a minor afterthought of an avocation to a full time company as a means to memorialize the impact Don had on my life. Numerous times every month, for many months before he left this worldly plane, he constantly encouraged me to do something with, “this hot sauce thing you have going!”
He deeply believed that at least one of our products belonged on every grocery store in the U.S., and believed that we had something special. While preparing my part of his eulogy, it struck me: how better to honor his life by doing something with my own that relates to something he worked so hard to push me towards. Less than 2 years later and I was making a massive leap of faith, leaving my career job to make myself wholly available to build this little company.
