February 4, 1877 - March 10, 1969

Zebulon "Zeb" Pearce was a leading participant throughout 90 years of central Arizona history. He graduated from Tempe Normal in 1899 and later went on to become a school teacher, the mayor of Mesa, city councilman, business leader, civil servant, charitable giver, family man, and friend.

In 1911, Zeb acquired a produce and feed business. At the end of Prohibition in 1933, Zeb was awarded the first Coors distributorship outside of Colorado by the Coors Brewing Company due to the cold storage he had added for the produce business.

Zeb's descendants and friends built this statue in his honor in 2014.
