Dean Sound, founded in 1982, is owned and operated by Jeff Dean, Findlay, Ohio. Jeff felt at the time that the progressive city of Findlay was not being served with a professional audio firm with top shelf gear. Since that time he has steadily built up his stock of rental equipment to provide audio for a large base of events and performers. From presidents to national touring acts to local musicals, university events, and arts organizations, Jeff has led Dean Sound to provide first-class audio services for over 4,500 events.
Jeff has been married to his wife Jill for over forty years. Their oldest son is married, lives nearby, and is an integral part of the company. Their daughter and her fiance live in Columbus with their two small children, and she also does the bookwork for the firm. Their youngest son and his wife live in the Nashville area and are awaiting their first child. He also works with the business and toured professionally for six years. Jeff is an amateur astronomer and is interested in researching history and traveling to off-the-beaten-path historical sites, not surprising as he spent 35 years as a public educator.
DLS Installations, founded in 2004, is co-owned by Jeff Dean and Doug Lee. Doug has a degree from DeVry and has worked in several technical positions, including such firms as Harris Semiconductor, RCA, Intersil, and Marathon Petroleum. Doug and his wife Toni have four grown children, three sons and a daughter, plus two daughters-in-law and four fabulous grandsons.
