Mr. Meyer married his high school sweetheart Elaine “Hoppy” Meyer in the summer of 1983. Mr. and Mrs. Meyer have 3 sons, Christopher, Brent and Jamie. When their youngest son Jamie was 16 months old, he was diagnosed with Nephrotic Syndrome, an immune system disease that attacked his kidneys. Over a fifteen-year period, Jamie received excellent treatment from Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC). Jamie is now a very healthy 24 year old. They were very fortunate to have a world class children’s hospital in their community.
