“This is a terrible loss for all of us,” said Sandy LaMantia, president and CEO of Shure. “These young men were all very special people who touched so many lives. This has had a profound impact on many of us here at Shure and to many thousands of people who were fans of their music. Michael, John and Doug were not just co-workers, they were friends, and we will miss them.”
