Rest in Peace, My Friend

Steve Sommer

Steve Sommer, former CMO at Splunk, and my friend, passed away last Thursday after a valient 16 month battle with cancer. It was not unexpected, yet I'm certain that none of us who knew him had figured out how to prepare for it.

Rest in Peace, Steve. You were one of the best men I've ever known, and I was very proud to call you my friend. I will forever miss your wit, your cheer and your sage counsel. You left an incredible legacy in Rachel, Allison and Julia... a killer marketing team... and scores of the coolest t-shirts to ever walk the planet. Your best legacy, though, is the huge number of hearts you touched along the way.

Mike, Doug, Joe, Earl, David, Michele and the whole team at Concanon and Scianta Analytics would like to extend our hearfelt sympathy to Rachel, Allison, Julia and the entire Sommer family, to Jill, and to the extended family Steve loved so much at Splunk.
