He was a truly wonderful person; a beloved son, husband and father; and a treasured friend and colleague.

from Sebastian Thrun

The loss of Sam continues to be unreal and I am still hoping to wake up from a bad dream. To so many of us, Sam was a role model both as a scientist and as a human being. In our scientific field, he was a rising star. What set him aside from so many others was his ability to engage, be thoughtful, and think out of the box when facing challenging problems. As a person, he was nothing short of amazing for me.

My thoughts are with Sam's family and their countless friends.
