It was 1985 while I was a young student studying at San Jose State University. My father had passed a year prior and me and my family were met with significant challenges.

To help my family, I went to the SJSU Career Center to look for an internship. By luck, that day, the Career Center woman told me of a fresh IBM posting for a software engineer. I decided to go for it. Every student in the country at the time knew how hard it was to get into IBM and what it meant for their career.

Cliff, the hiring manager, interviewed me. During our Q&A, he told me that he knew my father as an architect. I want to think that Cliff took me in to help me and my family out in a tough time and saw me as this kid with potential. I owe him a lot for kick starting my career for working at IBM opened up doors later in my life that I am so grateful for.

If that wasn't enough, Cliff and his boss Burt, pulled strings asking IBM corporate to extend my Co-op stay for another year. This while IBM was laying off and reducing Co-op interns in an undergoing recession.

Thank you Cliff Simpson. You were a good man that will be missed.
