January 23, 2016 "Doug Tompkins lived his passions in ways most of us struggle to do. I met him at Esprit where he shaped a unique innovative culture and for many of us opened our eyes to the beauty and adventures of the outdoors. His attention to details is well known. Still remember the LA store he architected- leather floor/ the stuff of theater - easy to admire his unwavering drive and his land preservation legacy in Chile. His positive impact will live on in so many ways - one of a kind man shining a bright light on what is possible" - Elisabeth Richard (San Francisco, CA)
