It's wondrous that one man could positively impact so many. At work we witnessed his ability to uncover challenges, create ways to overcome those burdens and share all he learned so that many, many others could benefit from his guidance. Reading about all he accomplished in the hours he wasn't at VMware is incredible. His contribution to the community will inspire me and so many others to do more for those around us. Those new connections to those in need in our communities will be part of Kevan's legacy. Peace to your family.

Joyce Family, The VMware Family lost a great guy way too soon. I had the privilege to work for KJ for over 2 years and learned a lot from him. KJ truly demonstrated VMware EPIC2 Values as he was very involved with many local charities. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this holiday season. He will be truly missed.
