Fischer & Wieser has participated in the Nimitz Classic every year since its inception. The Nimitz Foundation is near & dear to Case D. Fischer’s heart, having taken part in Nimitz activites since his teenage years. He served as Chairman of the Board of the Admiral Nimitz Foundation, among other offices.

“Fischer & Wieser is honored to participate in any cause that helps our veterans and educating the public about their sacrifices,” stated Fischer. “We hope their stories, especially those of the WWII Veterans, are known and shared with generations now, and in the future.”

Rusty Fenton: His inspiration and friendship will be missed

It is with utmost sadness I share with you the loss of my dear friend, Rusty Fenton.

Rusty and I became friends in the late ‘80s when he had started a praline business. We both were “foodies” and had a passion for entrepreneurship. He is in that small group of friends who would do anything for you without question! Rusty was always there for me—in good times and especially in bad! And I will miss the “safe” feeling I got when talking to and being with him.

Many of you who love our products have a connection with Rusty. It was Rusty I would send my products to for feedback and it was Rusty who said to me when I was working on a new raspberry sauce, “Case, why don’t you add chipotle peppers to that?”

Well, in 1995 hardly anyone even knew what a chipotle pepper was—including me.  He explained the flavor of it to me—and skeptically, I tried his suggestion.  As you know, it was magic!  The Original Roasted Raspberry Chipotle Sauce® became our best seller overnight and remains so today.

That is just one of many helping hands Rusty gave to me and Fischer & Wieser, and I can say we would not be where we are without that, and many other “Rusty ideas” and help  through our years of friendship.

Rusty, thank you so much for everything you did for me and all the other people you inspired over the years. I will miss that “safe” feeling I had with you but I know you are busy opening your next Rusty Taco in Heaven! I can only imagine how good they will taste up there!

God bless and farewell!

Case Fischer
