Obituary: Jeffrey Kramer, Founder, Bullet Line
He Was 62
Jeffrey Kramer, the founder of industry supplier firm Bullet Line (asi/42424), died of cancer over the weekend at his Miami Beach, FL, home. He was 62.
Kramer started Sun Manufacturing, which later became Bullet Line, at the age of 28 in 1980. Known as one of the industry pioneers of rush service, Kramer immediately focused his company on fast delivery when he introduced three-day turnaround on orders placed with Bullet. Capitalizing on the desire for rush service, Kramer and his partner, Bill Rosen, built Bullet Line into a $60 million Top 40 supplier, which they ultimately sold to Polyconcept in the middle of 2006.
Owner of thoroughbred racehorses for many years, Kramer was also a long-time supporter of numerous local charities and institutions, including serving on the Board of the Miami Project to Cure Paralysis, and the Boards of Jewish Family Services and Miami Country Day School. He was also a Society Member of Mount Sinai Hospital, and supporter of the American Lung Association, Jewish Guild for the Blind, JAFCO, the New Israel Fund and the University of Miami.
Kramer is survived by his wife of 30 years, Kandy and son, Spencer, his mother Jean Kramer, and his sister Donna Gross. A funeral service for Kramer will be held tomorrow at the Riverside Gordon Memorial Chapel in Aventura, FL.
