Thank You, Jean Alexander

This weekend our industry suffered the loss of Jean Alexander, a woman whom many of us knew and adored. Jean was one of the most positive, helpful and real woman in this industry and she will be missed. I have read all the emotional tributes to Jean and feel lucky that our market has such eloquent people who can put into words how many of us feel.

It also got me thinking. In this industry, which is so small and so close, we have the opportunity to be kind, respectful and let our peers know daily how much they offer the industry and us personally.

Losing Jean reminds me to tell our peers in the IT channel how they've helped us grow, or made our work week happier just by being there.

I'd love to ask for your participation this week in posting any kind or positive words for those who have made you feel good or helped you in the industry. Let's say thanks and share comfort right now, while our dear friends can feel it. I'll start with the first comment. Thanks so much and rest in peace Jean. You will be so missed and have always been incredibly treasured.
