We just heard that Mike Obermeier, a long time associate of MCAI and a icon at Santa Ana College for almost 20 years, died in a tragic accident during the Memorial Day weekend.

“Obie,” as he was known to many, started as an eager student became a teacher, senior engineer and studio manager for Santa Ana College ‘s media & telecommunications facility. He was also an important contributor to Santa Ana’s community access channel for many years. Most recently, Mike was a dominant force in the planning, design and implementation of the new Digital Media Center being built in Costa Mesa as a joint venture with Santa Ana College. Despite being in a wheelchair from a motorcycle accident at the age of 21, Obie lived life to the fullest. He will be greatly missed by his college associates, the community and large number of media professionals.
