Meet Our Team


Dennis Passe


The owner/founder and the heart and soul of D&M Trophies. A true man of the people, Dennis operated with a business model of putting his customers’ needs before that of his own. A unique and very special man, Dennis unfortunately passed away in 2020. His loss was a great one for everyone who had the pleasure of knowing him. He will continue to be recognized and the business will continue to operate in the manner in which Dennis intended it.


Mike Passe

The proud son of Dennis, Mike has been active with the business since its inception in the early 90s. He will resume his old title as Director of Operations overseeing all production of orders and quality control. Having served nearly two decades in education, Mike was a head baseball coach and most recently was a high school administrator overseeing multiple departments – including Athletics and Operations.
