Jerry Throgmartin


jerrythrogmartinIt is our position our community lost a great leader recently with the passing of Mr. Jerry Throgmartin.

The longtime hhgregg executive and Hamilton County resident was involved in a great number of boards and charities outside his own professional responsibilities. The time and resources Throgmartin provided to various causes has positively influenced many in our community. Aside from his successful time running hhgregg, Throgmartin was known for his work as chairman of the Indiana University Melvin and Bren Simon Cancer Center Development Board, a regular donor to the Shepherd Community Center and a board member of his almamater, the University of Indianapolis.

An avid horse enthusiast, Throgmartin and his wife purchased the Vista Verde Ranch in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. Also a devoted family man, Throgmartin is survived by his wife, Peggy, a son and twin daughters, as well as two granddaughters. There is little doubt Throgmartin’s influence in our community stretched far, and he positively influenced a great number of individuals. His legacy will be felt for generations to come.
