Leaders,

I was saddened to learn of Roman Hustad's recent death. Roman was a
passionate member of the OWASP community and a chapter leader in Sacramento.
I just spoke with him in Irvine about his plans to start college chapters.
Here is the message I received from Dean Saxe.

"Roman Hustad, OWASP chapter leader in Sacramento, CA, died suddenly on
November 4th at the age of 39.  Exact cause of death is to be determined,
but it is known that he collapsed after arriving in the Las Vegas airport
that evening after arriving from his home in Davis, CA for a conference.
Roman is survived by his wife of 6+ years, Tanya (Burgdorf) Hustad, and his
sons Lucas (4 yrs old) and Wyatt (2 yrs old), his sister Holly (Fail)
Hoeksema, and brother, Andrew James.  The whole family is being supported
and cared for by loving family and friends in Davis, CA at the moment.
Roman was deeply loved by all who knew him and will be remembered and
celebrated as a husband, father, son, brother, friend, as well as an
insatiable adventurer and outdoorsman with a deep intellectual curiosity."

If anyone wants contact information for the family, you can contact Andrew
Hoeksema (Holly's husband) at andrewhoeksema at gmail.com.
