I knew Shammi as a Region Leader at Taco Bell. Shammi was an unusual leader as he was very kind and concerned about those who worked for him. He was a mentor, a friend, very funny, and always genuine. I'm sure anyone who was lucky enough to work for him will say the same. He will certainly be missed and the thoughts and prayers of my family will be with his family.
