Michael Cristiani passed away at the end of May of this year. Michael was a well-known and well-loved member of the Tableau community. I didn’t know him well–I only met him in person once. But we communicated via Twitter and I enjoyed his positive, sharing presence on the platform (you can still view his Twitter feed).

I reached out to a few people who knew Michael to record a remembrance or story, and I’m happy to share them with you this week.

You can read Michael’s obituary where the family is requesting donations made to the American Heart Association.
