Print
Thomas Meskell Hauser

Age 78, of Boca Grande, Florida and Dellwood, Minnesota, passed away suddenly and unexpectedly on April 24, 2019. Tom was born in Saint Paul, MN on August 6, 1940. He graduated from St. Paul Academy in 1959 and later a received a Bachelor’s degree in Business and Psychology from the University of Minnesota. After graduating, Tom joined Federal Cartridge and later Honeywell.

In 1969, Tom and two friends founded Mentor Corporation, a medical products company. He was a Director, Vice President and Treasurer. Mentor went public in 1970. Tom was the creative genius behind the company in both marketing and product development. Inc. Magazine frequently rated Mentor as one of the fastest growing companies in America. In 2009, Mentor was acquired by Johnson and Johnson. In the 1990’s, Tom became the Chairman of the Board and CEO of a private school in Sarasota, using his entrepreneurial skills that were needed by the school.

Tom loved living on the water in Boca Grande, Dellwood and Lake Superior. He loved boating, model trains, reading, spending time with his family and close friends. He had a one of a kind sense of humor, strong opinions, and wasn't worried about being politically correct. He will be deeply missed.

Tom leaves behind his loving wife of 38 years, Christine Pardee Hauser and son Thomas Jr., his nieces Elizabeth (Hauser) Cameron, Sara Hauser and nephew, Leopold IV (Polo) Hauser. He is pre-deceased by his parents Leopold A. Hauser, Jr. and Marion G. Hauser and his brother and sister in law Leopold A. Hauser, III and Helen Bros Hauser.
