E-Z Parking said Monday that its “senior leaders will be managing the transition” following the sudden death of company co-founder Jeff Feemster last week.
Feemster, 52, died of a heart attack Friday. He co-founded the company in 1998 with former Mayor Patrick Cannon, who is serving a federal prison sentence for corruption after pleading guilty to taking bribes last year.
In a statement, E-Z Parking officials wrote that Feemster “was an exceptional family man, businessman, mentor and friend.”
“His talent, patience and leadership will leave a lasting imprint on our company and everyone he has known. He will be deeply missed,” the company’s statement said.

In December 2014 Feemster said Cannon no longer had any ownership in the company and that E-Z Parking would move past the former mayor’s misdeeds. Investigators did not say Cannon’s crimes involved the company.
