I fondly remember the first time I met Steven (prior to his actual hire date at Nationwide). His infectious laugh, warm & welcoming manner and ability to HEAR you were evident from that day forward. He was always supportive and encouraging. His humor and creativity were well known and so very appreciated. Who will ever forget Fabio's visit? Really, that was a true Steven moment.

To Steven's family, my deepest condolences. He was liked, loved and admired by many, many people. He will be sorely missed.

Steven was highly intelligent. In freshman year along with my sister who also works for nationwide translated from Greek to Latin to Hebrew to English so we might understand each other better. We studied Greek mythology and the the gods of side mideas venus and Thor. It was fun and interesting. And very educational. He was in theater we acted out Many plays. Sharing our worlds. He helped my children. In his honor because he’s always been a Star I’ve sent a star up to heaven from nasa where I used to take school groups. England sent the gift from the star register. You’ll be able to look and find the star with Stevens name. A light in the darkness. He shown brightly. I had one photo of Steven and I laughing this is a painting of a sillotte of a child playing that I painted. There is a second.

I just saw Steven on April 27th. He came to my birthday party at a local pub. I’m so sorry for your loss. He was the kindest man I’ve ever known. He genuinely cared a bout everyone. Even if you just met him, he treated you like he knew you for years. I met him 15 years ago. I’m hosting a get together on June 2 at the same pub. He touched so many lives. We’re going to get together and share all our memories of him. Laugh and cry. I’ve started taking donations for Milestones Autism Research Center in Stevens memory. Everything collected from now until June 2 will be donated in is memory. I still can’t believe he’s gone. My heart goes out to all his family. He was truly loved....by many. Take care of each other. ❤️

I think I am one of many who had a brief but intense series of encounters with this extraordinary human who went by the name of Steven Schriebman. Our paths crossed about 10 years ago for a few months, shared stories about life and love and loves and work, personal struggles and ultimate victories, the things small and large that make up our experiential selves. Always wanted to know him better, but am glad that I had the opportunity that I was given.

I am unable to make the trek to Cleveland today, but will be making a contribution in memory to Cat Welfare. I'm attaching some words that I hope family and friends will appreciate: words I first heard at my grandma Nana's memorial many years ago.

Steven was very talented and funny. He was even more rare and special in two ways: he really took the time to listen, share advice and be supportive. And he was truly kind and open-minded in a way few people are. So sorry about his passing, glad to have known him.

I GOT THE JOB AS THE SPOKESPERSON FOR NATIONWIDE INSURANCE WHEN STEVEN WORKED THERE. I REMEMBER ONE OF THE FIRST THINGS HE EVER SAID TO ME WAS, "WE'RE GOING TO BE SENDING EACH OTHER HOLIDAY CARDS FOR THE REST OF OUR LIVES NOW." I'M SAD THAT THAT TRADITION WILL END NOW.

STEVEN WAS SUCH A GEM OF A HUMAN BEING. HE ALWAYS WENT OUT OF HIS WAY TO MAKE SURE I WAS OK AND THAT I KNEW WHAT WAS REALLY GOING ON WITH MY JOB AT NATIONWIDE. WHEN THE CAMPAIGN ENDED (AND HE HAD LEFT THE COMPANY), HE REACHED OUT TO ME AND SAID, "LET'S TALK." HE PROCEEDED TO ANSWER ALL MY QUESTIONS. I LOVED HIM FOR THAT.

A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO, I WAS IN DENVER FOR A CONFERENCE AND WE HAD DINNER TOGETHER ONE NIGHT. AS ALWAYS, HE WAS LAUGHING (LOUD) AND LOVING LIFE. HE WAS SUCH A FUN, JOYOUS SOUL. WE TOOK A PHOTO TOGETHER, MAKING RIDICULOUS FACES TO THE CAMERA. THAT'S HOW I WILL REMEMBER HIM: SILLY, FUN, JOYFUL, KIND.

I am grateful to have known Steven. He had the most memorable laugh, and was such a fun, creative, kind soul. You could always count on him to provide a boost to your self esteem. He would always tell you you were the "cutest", "the most adorable", or "fabulous"! He was taken from us far too soon and will be greatly missed. RIP. Love, Lori
