In Memory of Donald Solem
Board Chairman 2011-2017
It is with deep sadness we inform you that our Board Chairman, Don Solem passed away in his sleep at his Mill Valley home on January 4th, 2017, after a short battle with lung cancer.
Don’s commitment, passion and energy have been a force that enabled our organization to make great, and at times unparalleled, strides forward during his last five-plus years as our Board President. He has also been one extraordinary mentor and friend to so many of us.
The family has posted this obituary highlighting the many personal and professional accomplishments Don achieved during his amazing career and life (linked HERE). The San Francisco Chronicle also ran a great story with quotes from United States Senators, Mayors, family and others (linked HERE).
Don was incredibly proud of his work and accomplishments with K to College and now SupplyBank.Org. His leadership, enthusiasm, unmatched intellect and most of all his friendship will be greatly missed.
Rest in peace Don.
