On the morning of July 22, Facebook’s longtime corporate chef, Josef Desimone, 44, died in a fatal motorcycle accident, according to the Contra Costa Times. The details surrounding the accident were not reported.
Both staffers and executives are mourning the passing of Desimone, who was a popular figure on the company’s Menlo Park campus.
“Josef was a Facebook legend and institution,” said CEO Mark Zuckerberg in a post on his own Facebook page. “[Josef] built our culinary team from a handful of employees in a single café into a global team with dozens of world class restaurants. Josef played an incredibly important role in defining our culture during those first years and right up to the present.”
“Wherever Josef was, everything was not only delicious but filled with joy and a love of life,’ said COO Sheryl Sandberg, who first met Desimone when he cooked at Google, where they both worked before moving to Facebook.
