Our dear friend and colleague Matthew Clinger spent the past year and a half courageously battling extraskeletal osteosarcoma cancer. It is with the utmost sorrow that we share Matt passed away on Wednesday, March 24th. He continued against all odds through extensive chemo and radiation to play a significant role at MHTN as one of our esteemed leaders. We recognize and celebrate the bounty of inspiration, dedication, and innovation that Matt shared with each of us.
Matt will always be known as an expert designer, architect, leader, and mentor. Those skills made him a pleasure to work with, but more so his integrity and remarkable ability to accept things as they are and still spark joy. Matt shared much with us. We have especially benefited from his mentorship and influence in inspiring young professionals at MHTN.
In Matt’s honor, MHTN would like to continue that spirit of mentorship and professional development by instituting the “Matt Clinger Mentoring Grant”, which will be awarded to a recipient at MHTN each year. This will allow our valued employees to experience a more acute focus on education, mentorship, and professional growth and then share what they learn with others.
Our thoughts turn now to Matt’s wife and five children. We thank them for the countless hours they shared Matt that enabled us to stretch further and discover exceptional design solutions. We hold them in our thoughts and ask that they be granted the peace and strength to endure the great loss of their husband and father.
