Tributes from the Team

From every formal meeting to the causal interactions, Luke always brought a positive energy to the environment. He worked exceptionally well with clients as well as cross-functionally within the company, leading to two promotions within short two years at GetSwift. His exceptional sense of humor, a passion for history, current events and silly movies always kept conversations engaging and left a smile on our faces. These are memories we will cherish.

“Luke brought such a radiant presence to the workplace. We often forgot how young he was because of his natural professionalism, ingenuity and quick wit. While it might have taken over a year to convince him to watch movies of the likes of Mean Girls, so he would finally understand our banter, he was often the point leader of our “laughs competition”. Luke was a very impressive person. He was a quick learner and tackled some of our toughest challenges with poise. I will miss you Luke.”
– Kim Cercone
“Luke had the best sense of humor – any friendly dig you threw at Luke, he took it with a smile and was quick to throw back a witty comeback that would make everyone laugh. Every weekend he managed to have the best weekend ever & put out support fires at the same time. I looked forward to our Monday meetings where I would hear about his wild adventures. He was a hard worker and always had such a positive attitude. I always forgot how young Luke was because of his maturity and of how much he had already accomplished. Luke is already so missed.”
– Pegeen Stone
“Luke was a great co-worker and overall just a great person to be around. He would always help keep the office lively and would always be willing to help out with questions. I enjoyed our conversations about work related matters, sports or sharing similar stories about commuting into the city and explaining why we were late. Having a dedicated co-worker is something that every team and company would love to have. You will definitely be missed.”
– Tommy Cooper
“Luke was an incredible colleague and friend. His ability to light up a room or even re-energize a conversation was unbelievable. We spent many a conversation discussing sports, the sporting bets we lost, and then the ones that were going to take us to the big league! I’ll forever remember him as a special person to not only the company but to me as my mate. Rest in peace brother.”
– Michael Knox
“No words to describe the feeling after someone as young as you leaves us, Luke. We remain humbled and touched by your time with us, grateful for each of the smiles we shared over the past two years. Thank you, mate, for being here for us. The Belgrade team will miss you.”
– Milos Nikolic/Tamara Milanovic
“While I didn’t work as closely with Luke as some of my co-workers, what I saw was a bright, young and aspiring person who always had a smile on his face! I also feel I was drawn to help create this dediction page to you Luke. May you rest in peace man.”
– Nick Jackson
