In memory of a "Fast Company' and "Inc." colleague and friend

  • Eleven days ago I got a call that I never anticipated: Stephanie Meyers, my 37-year-old deputy at Fast Company and Inc., had died, inexplicably.
  • Only days later would we learn part of an explanation: blood clots in her lungs.
  • My emotions have ranged since then from shock to shaken-up to recognition that I couldn’t quite process what happened—that someone so young, so vibrant, with such a bright future—was gone.
  • I can hardly imagine what those closest to Steph—her father and brother and childhood friends—are going through.
  • I hired Steph and was her boss for the last seven years, but we were really colleagues, partners, and close friends.
