“It is with great sadness that we mark the passing of John Meyerovich, Vice President, and co-founder of Continuum Pedicure Spas, who passed away in May after a long battle with cancer. John was the sole inventor of the world’s first whirlpool pedicure station, which was patented in 1985. Over the years, John had thirty-four patents spanning from that first filing to a patent granted in April of 2017. John was born in Odessa in 1942 and would graduate with a degree in Cryogenic Engineering from Odessa College. He was a brilliant engineer, but in his heart, John was a business man. He came to the United States in 1975 with his wife, Olga, and daughter, Natasha.
In the ’80’s, John opened two nail salons and the first nails-only school in Wisconsin. John and his business partner, Joe Galati Jr. founded European Touch Companies in 1985. After years of innovations and success, they sold the businesses in 1998. John thought he was retired but he never lost touch with the industry he loved. In 2007, John and Joe brought excitement back into the salon industry when they introduced the first luxury pedicure spa, known as the Maestro. John was a visionary and inventor, but above all else, he valued his family and friends. He thought everyone deserved dignity and respect, regardless of one’s station or success in life. All of us at Continuum will never forget his wit, sense of humor, warm heart and how John made all of us, better.”Share
