Working at Nvidia, I only came into contact with Phil a handful of times in my 12+ yrs but right off the bat, you could sense his selflessness and kind heart. He is truly a martyr and should be remembered as one. Late condolences to his family and close friends, some of whom I know. May he rest in paradise now!
Emily - My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
Some people have a "lightness of Being" this I mean in an Existential sense. They walk in the place between Heaven & Earth. From that vantage point they realize not to take life too seriously therefore they are free to enjoy their life. This was how I saw Phil. He seem to enjoy every minute. Most of us are too encumbered to have this experience. It was an honor to know him. I will try to be lighter. Enjoy the Day! Every Day!
My condolences. The man will continue to live in our hearts and minds
I didn't know Philip Scholz but he sounds like a wonderful person. My sympathies to the whole family.

My sincere condolence to the Scholz family.
"My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one's life for one's friends. You are my friends if you do what I command. I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master's business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you. You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit—fruit that will last—and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you. This is my command: Love each other."
Your family is in my Prayers. I offer you my deepest condolences.
Sorry for your loss Scholz family.

Dear Fritz, Roberta, Christian, and Emily, our hearts go out to you each of you. I can't imagine your loss. I can remember what a sweet boy Philip was when he and Scott were schoolmates in Shoreline. And from everything I've read online, he became a strong, responsible, and well-loved young man. Please know that we are thinking about you and only sorry we aren't closer to offer more support.
Fondly, Mike & Louise (from Peru) & Scott (from Wisconsin)

Great Guy. Sad to see you go
I had never heard of Phil before now, which is unfortunately how things tend to work out nowadays. It's such a shame that such a brave man working an awesome job has more recognition now than before, this story deserves to be shared. May he rest in peace
I pray that you are in heaven and that all of your sins are forgiven. Thank you for your amazing work at nvidea. God Bless.
Great guy working for a great company. Phil is a hero, and he will not be forgotten.

Thanks Phil for making NVIDIA what it is today. We will miss you.
Dear Scholz Family,
I am so sorry for your loss. He will always be remembered as a hero.
Random guy from the internet here to pay his respects.
one day we will meet in the stars traveling the universe as microscopic atoms. You will be missed but not forgotten.
I did not know Phil IRL but, I have seen him in several tech videos & pray for his family! <3
You were a good person Phil, not many people have the good intentions you had. Rest in peace.
I'm so very sorry for your loss. I didn't know Phillip; but from what I've read about him, I wish I had. Real heroes are rare and Phillip won't be forgotten.
Dear Mrs. Scholz,
I am sorry to hear about your loss. I pray that you can find solace with the fact that he was gave his life doing the noblest of acts, by trying to save another person. My thoughts and prayers go out to you and family.
Thank you, Phil, for all the work you have done to further the technology world. You will always be in our hearts.
Phil died being a hero. He stood out from the crowd to try and save a man who he didn't even know.
See you among the stars, tough guy.
I did not know this courageous young man but my daughter was a good friend of his dating backing to Santa Clara University. All that I have read only reinforce he was a special person taken at far too early an age trying to save someone else. My condolences to his family, friends and co-workers on their loss of a good husband, family member and friend.
Dear Scholz Family ,
So so sorry for your loss .....the world has lost an incredible human being ! Please know , that family , friends and complete strangers have been touched by Philips heroic act and that will NEVER be forgotten ....I hope every single person PAYS IT FORWARD in memory of Philip Scholz ...
Peace to you all !
I bought Phil's beloved BMW E46 M3 as a gift to my wife. He would see the car at work parking lot and email to say how happy he was to see the car got a good home. My wife and I are heartbroken at the tragedy. Our condolences to Emily and family.
I didn't know Philip, but I work with his brother Christian. My heart goes out to the family in this time of tragedy and pray they find comfort in the difficult days ahead.
Your fellow ACE riders miss your sweet face every morning and evening...I rode the ACE train & shuttle with Phil for the past 12 years...he was a wonderful human being and will be greatly missed by all his friends here at NVIDIA. Rest in peace Phil.
My Salute to you Phil. You did what not everyone would do -- give your life for someone who you don't know. You are a true Hero !!!
Dear Emily and Family,
We are your neighbors at 868 Bonita. Though we have not met, our hearts and prayers are with you. Philip sounds like an amazing man. You have the neighborhoods support and love.
Ed and Jennie Olivero
Philip is the type of person we need more of in our world. It's so hard to lose someone so wonderful but so wonderful to have known him or even just to have heard about the man he was. God bless you all.
Thank you for everything Phil. You have been a motivational force for me these past few years and I will not let it go to waste. Jog the bases pal!
You were always a positive guy, and a great baseball teammate for the Sox. You will be missed by all, and my prayers, & condolences go out to you all.
Rest in peace Phil....I don't know you personally ..but saw your glorious effort on the news....you are one of a kind man who has gone to a length where we have to question our lives. You are In heaven I'm sure.
In Jesus words;
"Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one's life for one's friends."
Phil you have made an example of yourself for greatest love on earth ....
Movies and fiction that society is engulfed in make it seem like there are heroes everywhere. In truth, people like Mr. Scholz are extremely rare. I'd imagine that whatever capacity he exists in now, that it's one currently being rewarded generously. May your wife and family receive the infinite strength of a universe that bows in response to your selflessness. You will undoubtedly be missed. It's one thing to sign up to defend your country, fight fires, or keep our streets safe. To jump in at a moments notice when traversing your normal day-to-day life and make the ultimate sacrifice, is something completely different. Rest well, Philip Scholz.
Philip, when I think back to my childhood and the family friends we spent time and had fun with, you and your brother are among those who always come to mind. Although we didn't spend much time together in our adult lives, Saul and I were always excited to learn about your year through your annual holiday cards. I was absolutely heartbroken and devastated to learn of your passing. My heart goes out to Emily, Christian, your parents and all of those in your life whom you clearly touched with your amazing spirit. This spirit will live on inside all of us when we think of you, and you will be remembered so fondly. Peace & Love.
My deepest sympathies. I wish I'd had a chance to get to know Philip. He was clearly a very special person.
I was lucky enough to have been introduced to Phil. He was a great guy and a real superhero. My prayers are with him and his family.
I'm sorry for your loss. Rest assured he's in my prayers. Rest In Peace Phil!
Phil, this world lost a great warrior in life! To his family, I'm terribly sorry for your lost. His smile and friendship will be missed.
My deepest sympathy goes out to Phil's family and friends, who have all lost a truly remarkable person from their lives.I knew Phil from SCU, and I can only echo what has been said many times already. Phil was a cheerful and compassionate person who never had a cynical or cutting thing to say about others. I'll remember fondly the time we had together, and I hope that his loved ones find comfort in each other in the days to come.
Phil, I only met you a few times at work, but I could tell you were a caring and positive human being. You will be missed.
Philip was a brave loving person ever since he was a small kid. He was raised in a loving and disciplined family as such too.
It was much too early to lose him.
He certainly will be missed tremendously. I wish his family a great strength to bear the grief.
