Cal Lutheran Alumni and beloved son. Meek’s mother is a veteran of the Air Force and his father a Navy SEAL, wrote Jenn Zimmerman, Cal Lutheran’s veterans coordinator. Meek spent two years in a work-study job at the Veterans Resource Office at Cal Lutheran, where he bonded with veterans who entered the office and helped them fill out paperwork for financial aid.
He was planning on joining the U.S. Coast Guard, a compromise between the Air Force and Navy, Zimmerman said.
An accomplished cook, Meek was tapped to prepare the meal for more than 100 students at the Veterans Day lunch on Monday, school officials confirmed.
“Since he can no longer be with us, we will hold a memorial in his honor,” Zimmerman wrote about Meek.
