In Memoriam

“All people will have to face adversity—nobody gets a free pass. If you have a strong faith, supportive family, good friends, and great employees, you basically have all of the tools you need to deal with just about anything that comes at you.”
- Steve Stumpf

This past April, Durr was deeply saddened by the passing of retired CEO Stephen Stumpf. As we reflect on and celebrate his life, we continue to strive to live the values he instilled into all of us here at Durr. In this video, Steve is honored as the 2012 Laureate to the Junior Achievement Business Hall of Fame. A great man with an even greater heart, Steve defines success as having “peace of mind.”
