During my early tenure with Mayo’s philanthropy program, Chris checked up on me everyday to ensure my well-being. He provided a list of Mayo’s distinctive services and strategies and personally guided me through them. Chris was an extraordinary navigator and helped me see how the institution worked, with genial insights and enthusiasm. I credit him with sustaining my sense of commitment during a challenging time. My deepest condolences to his family for their loss of this special man.
