The last time I saw Steven Caliendo, he gave me a tour of his new store and even took me to the roof garden where not many had gone. He was so proud, as usual. I snapped this picture while he spoke about how unique this area was. I don't think I ever got to tell him that he was one of the most amazing human beings I'd met. Or that he was the best leader I ever had. Part of who I've grown to become, professionally and personally, I owe to him. We've lost a great man, but his legacy will remain with all that knew with him.
Because of you, I'll continue to "represent the brand, have fun doing it, and make lives better!" Rest In Peace, kiddo. ❤️
