A Chat With October’s Profile, Peter Cobb, co-founder/senior vice president, eBags
CS: I saw your bio on eBag’s site, that was quite a remarkable story of your battle with cancer.
PC: Well, what I didn’t write in there either, my wife at the time, we started this in 1999, she had had breast cancer and got it back and passed away in 2001. So for about a two-year period there, from ’99 to 2001, I was kind of juggling a start-up and a wife who had terminal breast cancer. My wife and I had a son, so it’s those things … I think it puts things in perspective and it challenges you as a human being to kind of make a mark and do the right thing. I’m a big believer in integrity. Sometimes you just have to do what’s right, not only for your company, but for your family.
