In Memory of Rayna Burgess
Recently, XYPRO lost one of our former employees, Rayna Burgess to cancer on Wednesday, April 25, 2018. Rayna was our first XYPRO intern. She was our very first intern and boy, did we get lucky. Her internship was so successful, our intern program grew to 15 times its size and Rayna converted to full time, staying with XYPRO for 5 years. Rayna was involved in a lot of firsts at XYPRO. She was a huge advocate for and helped launch our agile development processes. She was our first scrum master. She set up and implemented ALM. She was part of the Tesla team that began all the research leading up to what is now XS1 and her name is on our recently granted Patent. She broke a lot of ground, tried many things here that she (and we) were trying for the first time. We wouldn’t be the same company without Rayna’s contributions. We send our deepest sympathy and condolences to her family.
In memory of Rayna and to honor her courageous fight, we have created a fundraising website for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.
• XYPRO will match your donation 100% dollar for dollar up to a company maximum total of $5000.00 for all donations received
• Our fundraising campaign will run through June 7th, 2018
• Donations can be made with a credit card by clicking the button above the fundraising thermometer (you will be emailed a receipt for tax purposes)
Breast Cancer affects 1 in 8 women during their lifetime. As the world’s largest and most impactful breast cancer organization, Susan G. Komen supports more breast cancer research than any other nonprofit outside the U.S. government, while providing real-time help to those facing the disease.
Thank you for generosity and joining us in the fight!
