January 7, 1966—April 13, 2009

In April 2009, MEP Engineering, Inc. lost a key part of the team as Joe Lopeman, Principal and co-founder, passed away after fighting a year-long battle from a serious motorcycle accident in April 2008. He was not only a Principal at MEP Engineering, Inc. but a true friend to many who knew him. Joe's real passion was for his family who always remained at the center of his world. He was a big sports fan, loved to have fun and enjoyed living life to its fullest and is truly missed. We continue to look to his vision and fortitude for guidance as MEP Engineering, Inc. continues to grow and looks toward the future.
