I was privileged to work with Mark at Highwired. His energy and excitement made that company great, and he was always reaching out to everyone in the company to make a personal connection. Everyone who met him loved Mark. My thoughts are with all of his family.

To the Johnson Family: I am deeply saddened to hear about Mark's passing. He was such a passionate person full of life and joy to be taken so soon. I had been wondering recently about how he was doing and was shocked yesterday when I learned that he was gone. Keeping you all in my heart, thoughts, and prayers.
