It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of a loved and respected member of the DIA community. Jeffrey Suglio, 60, passed away suddenly on April 25, 2021, and immediately entered the presence of his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
Jeff was born May 7, 1960, in Cleveland, Ohio, to Frank and Betty Lou Suglio, who preceded him in death, as did his newborn son, Scott. Jeff leaves behind his wife of almost 33 years, Michelle, and sons, Sam (Amelia) and Stephen.
Jeff was the owner of DMA Tech Solutions, which he started in 1987. His wife, Michelle, has been his faithful business partner since 1989. His son, Sam, joined the business in 2016 and will be carrying on Jeff’s legacy. Jeff joined the DIA in 2014; in that time, he was constantly at our conferences and integral in our meetings and discussions. He was always available to help encourage and talk through any questions. As time marches on, the DIA will surround Sam, Michelle, and DMA, with support, encouragement, and assistance in any way we can.
We were the lucky ones to have called Jeff a friend. He continually met each of us with a smile that was so big and genuine it couldn’t help but be returned, and he could always be counted on for a good story or two at the end of the day.
The DIA members who attended the Cabo Conference with Jeff, just a week before his unexpected death, feel so blessed that we could spend that time with him and Michelle. It is a joyful memory we will hold onto for years to come.
