Mitch, you were always fun to be around whether that was at work or not. One thing I'll always remember about you was your unwavering compassion for other's, I've personally have seen you go way out of your way to helps others even though you yourself weren't in the best shape to help others. Your kindness was admirable and surely will be missed. Until we meet again...farewell.

Working w/ Mitch was an honor! He had such an infectious smile & could light up a room w/ his positive attitude whenever he came around. He was always stoked to the fullest on anything he set his mind to. Mitch was extremely passionate about helping out w/ green initiatives in the office & I will forever be imprinted by his enthusiasm + willingness to spend hours of research on things that mattered most. He taught me a lot about what it means to truly be an advocate & to never give up on what you want to get done. I know Mitch was loved by many & is a testament to the life he lived. I will miss you so! <3

Mitch was an amazing guy. He was so incredibly funny and just great to be around. I remember driving him, my brother, and myself to school in high school and all the laughter. I remember loving working with him at Cheba Hut. I remember even after I moved on from Cheba Hut, running into Mitch always made me smile. It was always great to see him and catch up with him. I will miss him very, very much.
