Hi, My name is Karen Ramos. You guys haven't met me yet, but I was his supervisor at his work. I wanted to share the words that I shared about Dave with the company:

"Dave's passing is extremely sad and unfortunate, especially for the design team. I want to talk about who he was at work. Dave had recently moved from Virginia to Philly since he missed being in Philly, so this was an excellent opportunity for him to come back and work in something he was passionate about. From our conversations, it seemed like he loved fantasy football and hockey, and he wanted to be part of the sports betting and online gaming world. As a designer, although he seemed quiet or maybe more reserved in some of our meetings, he had a world of knowledge about User Experience Design. So it was no surprise to me when he told me he was two courses away from being Nielsen Norman UX Certified (it is a great achievement for someone in our line of work). He was starting to own various pieces of the Barstool Sportsbook; he was laying the groundwork for the applications and the website...he was starting to get his foot into being an integral part and one of the owners of this amazing product that's going to be in the hands of millions of Americans. In our one on ones, he was adamant about getting user testing and research in place, and he was going to help me define and create processes for that. We would also talk about his eagerness to play tennis once things started being more flexible with the pandemic. And he only had great things to say about how the design team was doing and how everything in the company was running.

When Dave would speak in our meetings, he would always start with, "Well, I guess that's me," and that eventually became our inside joke. I want us to remember Dave like that so let us keep him in our hearts, and may he rest in peace."

Dave Mullen is one of the nicest people anybody ever met. Every single person liked him, and he genuinely seemed to like everyone in return. If you attended Clearfield High School at any point between the years of 1991-1995, there are very good odds you experienced a positive interaction with Dave, and he very likely made you laugh. Mr. & Mrs. Mullen, I (we) wish you & your entire family nothing but love & positive thoughts at this unthinkably sad time. I, like many, many others, will always remember your son as one of the truly good people I ever crossed paths with, and that is absolutely a reflection of what a great family Dave has.
