The First Responders Foundation is honored to be inducting Debbie and Jeff Bremer into the Ancient Society of St. Florian and St. Michael at the 5th Annual 9/11 Luncheon of Honor on September 10, 2021.
The Ancient Order of Saint Florian and Saint Michael is a society made up of members of the community who have provided long-term and exceptional service to first responders, veterans, and their families through their enduring and exceptional acts of financial giving or acts of selfless volunteerism. The Bremer’s have been extremely supportive of the Foundation for many years. Debbie serves on the Board of Directors and is currently Vice Chairman of the Board.
Giving Back to the Community is Important to the Bremer’s
Debbie and Jeff Bremer have been married 32 years. They met in the restaurant business where they both worked in their early careers. Working for Simmonds Restaurant Management gave them an early on perspective about the industry and what it meant to be a local business and the importance of giving back to your community.
After moving around and working for larger restaurants Jeff and Debbie finally made their way back to Omaha where Debbie’s family roots are and where they wanted to raise their family.
Debbie and Jeff love being part of the Omaha community where they own 10 Taco John’s Restaurants (BRM), two in Omaha, one each in Columbus and Fremont, and two in Council Bluffs IA. They also own PIP Marketing, Signs & Print, and YESCO Sign and Lighting Company.
PIP Marketing, Signs, and Print is the Foundation’s printer of choice.
The Bremer’s have donated countless printing projects to the Foundation including all the materials and signage for the Annual 9/11 Luncheon of Honor, and the Annual Appreciation Lunches. As if that was not enough the Bremer’s have been collecting financial donations at each of their Taco John’s locations for years. Each restaurant has a collection box where people can donate loose change or more to the First Responders Foundation. It is a great way to raise money and increase awareness of the Foundation and it is a tangible way for people to honor local first responders. Over the years Taco John’s and customers have donated close to $30,000 to the Foundation.
Being generous is nothing new for the Bremer’s. They have quietly helped numerous employees who have run into tough times. For example, in 2020, Jeff gave a Taco John’s employee of 10 years a car when hers was totaled by an uninsured driver. April Mungia called Jeff, “her angel”. “Gracias desde el fondo de mi corazón, gracias,” she said with joyful tears running down her face. “Thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
The Bremers tell us that giving back to the community is important to them and along with the First Responders Foundation other foundations/organization near and dear to them include, The Christopher Bremer Memorial Foundation, The YMCA, and Roncalli Catholic High School.
First Responders Foundation
Along with her board responsibilities for The First Responders Foundation, Debbie has served on the Omaha Executive Club, Omaha Executive Association, The Set Me Free Project Board, and The Christopher Bremer Memorial Foundation. Jeff serves on the Taco Johns Advisory Board as well as the ad production committee.
All of us at the First Responders Foundation would like to thank the Bremer’s from the bottom of our hearts as well.
Debbie and Jeff reside in Omaha. Their children are Jeff Jr, Christopher, and Alysha and they have 4 grandchildren. They both enjoy traveling, golf and family.
