Riqkee joined the Awake team in April 2022 where he worked in our panels and windows department. He soon transferred to the shipping team when the demand for Awake products increased and more help was needed to load trucks and ensure Awake products arrived to our customers safely. In January 2023 he was promoted to the position of shipping lead and helped lead a three person team in shipping out over $2 million in products in one month.

On January 17, 2023, we lost a friend, a co-worker, and part of our family. Riqkee will forever be missed and forever be an important part of the Awake story.
