Facebook CEO Sheryl Sandberg recently lost her husband in a tragic accident. The couple was vacationing in Mexico when her husband, 47-year-old Dave Goldberg fell off of a treadmill and hit his head. He fell so hard that he cracked his head open. By the time anyone found him, it was too late. He was laying in the fitness facility in a pool of blood from his traumatic head wound.
As folks at AnastasiaDate are aware, Goldberg was the CEO for the popular online survey website, SurveyMonkey. Sandberg serves as the Chief Operating Officer at Facebook. She took to the popular social networking site on Tuesday to memorialize her late husband. She wrote a beautiful post about her husband and how they met, highlighting that the 11 years she had with him were the best years of her life.
Many people who knew Goldberg were saddened by his loss. Mark Zuckerberg posted on his behalf, saying what a wonderful person he was. Others commended Goldberg’s amazing character and cheerful spirit. Even President Obama made a statement regarding the death of the SurveyMokey CEO. The president highlighted what a great leader Goldberg was and his drive to empower others to do the same. Although he gives his condolences to Goldberg’s family, the president also made a point that we should be celebrating an extraordinary legacy.
