Senseless In Oregon

By now, most of you have probably heard about the senseless mall shooting here in Oregon.

And never, in a million years, would one ever think that they would be touched by something like this.

One of the victims yesterday, Steve Forsyth, was a colleague and friend. During my time at Entercom, he was unconditionally supportive. He was bright and funny. He encouraged me to stretch and to always “go for it” creatively. In 2007, after I left, he mentioned that he was thinking of following suit. I said,’ “Dude, do it! You’ll be perfect at this.”

And he was.

Steve was built to be one of the best in marketing out here.

But he was built to be a loving, caring human being first.

Most importantly, he was an amazing husband and father. And my thoughts, prayers and love are with his family.

There really isn’t anything else to say here at this point — other than I hope that you keep the people who you love and care about close to you. And tell them how much they mean to you.

Often.

  1. I’ve heard so many wonderful things out there about Steve in these past 24 hours. It’s sad, it’s senseless but there is some comfort to hear loving stories about the victims and how much love they gave and received in their lifetimes.
