WPWeekly Episode 281 – In Memory of Jesse Petersen

In this episode, John James Jacoby and I are joined by Ben Meredith. Over the past few years, Ben has established a friendly and professional relationship with Jesse Petersen, who passed away due to complications from Cystic Fibrosis.

Ben shares his unique perspective on who Petersen was as a person and describes the challenges of taking over his business. We emphasized how important it is to create a file with passwords and other login information to help appointed people access a person’s digital presence. We also discuss if saying a person lost their battle with an illness is a negative thing to say.

To close out the show, we talk about net neutrality, 10up acquiring Lift UX, and Let’s Encrypt offering wildcard certificates in 2018.
