Paul Pearson was a man whose ever-present smile and booming laugh so often marked the highlight of our days and whose playful antics and positive attitude helped keep life in perspective, even through the most frustrating circumstances. He never let his ongoing battle with cancer take center stage, choosing instead to constantly focus on the happiness and well-being of those around him. "How are you my friend? Is there anything I can do to help you today?" were the words with which he greeted so many of us on a daily basis. A man of such selflessness is very rare - one of a kind! - and Paul will be missed dearly for a long time to come.
In honor of Paul's servant nature and passion for helping others, Optiv has initiated a fundraising campaign to benefit the American Cancer Society, with the goal of helping to improve the lives of countless individuals dealing with cancer and their families, and hopefully enable the discovery of a cure to the terrible disease that took our friend from us much too soon. Our initial fundraising goal is $50,000, a lofty sum that I'm sure Paul would have sarcastically labeled 'chump change' :-)
This one's for you, Paulie!
