David used to sit in the last row. When he would chime in with a comment, it would often put the Professor on the spot! He was a wonderful orator, never afraid to express himself, and believed in what was right. He encouraged us to be be better friends, better human beings, and be kind to the world. I remember once he figured I loved horse riding, he shared with me every resource he had so that I may volunteer at a stable as well and offered to take me there too. Our trip didn't happen because of the pandemic and our busy schedules, but every time I ride a horse, I shall remember David. Thank you for teaching me the importance of never backing down. You will be dearly missed. More power and strength to the family.

I have only known David for a brief period during my study at Carey. However, he left a strong impression in my memory. We both were in the same group on one of Carey’s Consulting Projects. My classmates and I spent all day with him. We got to know David, that he was a warm, humorous, deep thinker, was outspoken and liked to share about his experiences. On the way back from the project site we walked together to our campus and he shared personal stories that were very encouraging. "Everyday is a battle, but we are strong together in a community. We keep each other accountable for our struggle."

David was one of my classmates at Yale. He was passionate, deeply kind, and generously supportive of others. He had a positive impact on me and those who knew him, and I'm thankful for the time I had to share with him. Rest in peace, David.

David was the first student I contact in Carey. It was during house hunting, and as I completely foreign here, he went to all the back-and-forth e-mail process with the landlord to get the best lease contract possible. Later, he found another place, but he did not let me abandoned. He contacted me with Isha (my current roommate) who took his place on the lease. That was David. A kind soul that was generous enough to believe knowledge means nothing if you cannot share it with others.
I did group with him in our last core class this last spring, and he was so excited to move to LA, fulling of dreams. When doing work project, he stated “I am going to LA without even a job offer yet, but I am already selling my stuff here, ready for the challenge”. That was David, kind, tender, brave, and that will be the way I would remember him forever.

Baruch dayan ha'emet, David. Your love for Judaism shined when you were so stoked I was Jewish in our class but became jokingly disappointed when I shared I wasn't local in Baltimore. The best was when you asked if I knew what Moishe House was and I got to tell you I was a former resident myself. May your memory live on through the people you loved, inspired, and crossed paths with, David.

Rest in peace David, you were taken way too soon. I only knew you from a few of my classes, but interacting with you was a pleasure. You were extremely intelligent, engaging with all of us and making the classes a better experience for us all.

Rest In Peace, David. Way too soon! You were an inspiration — always curious to explore new ideas, brainstorms, and contradictions. and ready to jump into the next adventure with your whole heart. I will miss your random texts, emails, and phone calls sharing news, questions, and intellectual meanderings. Most of all I will miss you and the unfolding of your life so full of promise.

David and I first met at Yale- we became close friends, both being sober and fans of working out. Our thing outside of working out was watching movies, usually horror. We’d watch pretty much the same kind of horror movie each week, to the point where we’d seen most scary movies on Netflix. I looked up to his experience as a sober man, was baffled by his wit and admired how he truly marched to the beat of his own drum. Will miss you, David.

Rest in peace. Only the good die young. I’ve only met you 3 times at Moishe House events, but every time I saw you, you were smiling. 😆

The first time I met David was preCovidat Hinenu: the Baltimore Justice Shteibel, our synagogue. I was wearing a button that says Free Hugs from Mom with a little rainbow flag. David came up to me & said,?” Is that for real?” “Of course! “ & he gave me an enormous squeeze! After that, he became one of my “kids “. I will miss his sweetness. May his memory be a blessing.

I only knew David for a short time as their Community Manager at Moishe House (where they were a volunteer). I remember always being surprised at how insightful and interesting David was, and I wish I got to know them on a deeper level. I will always remember them for their love of Judaism and the way they cared about creating a pluralistic Jewish community in Baltimore. May their memory be a blessing.

I’ve been unable to shake this loss from my mind, as David and I shared many significant one-on-one conversations and connections during our Carey Business school journey. I have come to know David, and will remember him, as a very kind person who was passionate and compassionate in his endeavors. I appreciate the opportunity to share part of his “homegoing” services and am happy to have known him.

David and I got the first dose of the vaccine last Thursday (4/22) and the excitement about the move to LA and the future was all we could talk about as we walked to the vaccine site. David was, well, David, when he randomly turned to me and asked, "Do you think the metrics we use to judge the intelligence of animals are too biased and flawed? Like, what if by elephant standards we are incredibly stupid?" Most of the corridor we were standing turned and looked at him -- completely confused and almost laughing. That's how I will always remember David. An absolute wild card, wrapped inside an impossibly caring heart, served with a side of absolute disregard for the "social standard."
