Like father, like son. Jeff Messer has a lot in common with his dad, John, who passed away eight years ago. For starters, there’s running Messer Truck Equipment, the family business that Jeff now leads. More personally, just like his dad, Jeff tends to be a sentimental guy – so letting go of certain things can be more than a little challenging. An almost-15-year-old Fisher snow plow is a perfect example.
