January 25, 1971 – December 2, 2018
Born January 25, 1971 from Houston, Texas, passed in peace, surrounded by family, on December 2, 2018 at the age of 47.
Alex was preceded in death by his beloved father Eric Rasmussen, his grandmother Angela Nieto, and aunt Mary Oelslager. He is survived by his loving mother Diana Rasmussen and his three sisters Anna Rasmussen, Cyndi Dane and Caroline Caylor along with his nieces and nephews, Dan and Railynn Dane, Homero Gonzalez and Eric Caylor.
Born in San Antonio, Alex spent his early childhood in Ohio before moving back to Texas. He attended St. Thomas High School, University of Texas in San Antonio and University of St. Thomas in Houston.
Alex was a devout Catholic, foodie connoisseur, and creative leader in his profession. His career in event production took him all over the world. He received many awards and designations from the International Special Events Society, the Business Marketing Association, and the Public Relations Society of America.
Alex will always be remembered for his generous heart, witty sense of humor and religious faith. He would always lighten the load by making everyone laugh and smile.
As one of the last things he wrote in a journal “It’s foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died, rather we should thank God that such men lived”.
He’ll be greatly missed by his close dear friend Colby Clifford and best friend and business partner John Graner and good friend Pat Miral.
Thank you to all that stood by his side: Christian Navarro, Gabriel Chavez, Cedric Hill, Alice Lam, Phil and Leroy Lopez. He is eternally grateful for all his friendships as we are grateful for his. May Alex continue to shower us with his kindness from above… we miss you, we thank you and we love you...

Oh my goodness. I will always remember Alex as being the spunky little boy across the alley from my childhood home in Ohio.
The first day they arrived in Piqua, Ohio, I went over to introduce myself to the new kids. Alex was toddling around the backyard, I said Hi to him and his diaper fell off! That first impression, that he didnt have any control over, has stuck with me all these years.
God bless you Alex...you will forever be in my heart.
