Statement of Derek Miller, President and CEO of Salt Lake Chamber and Downtown Alliance on Passing of Utah County Business Leader Steve Densley:
“I received the news of Steve’s passing with sadness this week as he was a friend and consummate example of serving others. While serving in the Governor’s Office of Economic Development, I had many opportunities to work with Steve as he led the Utah Valley Chamber.
“Steve was active with the Utah Association of Chambers, and several years ago, the Steve Densley Institute Scholarship was created to provide professional development opportunities to other chamber executives. He mentored many Chamber executives and built up Chamber of Commerce influence across the state.
“Steve was one of a kind and gave so much to Utah County. His life and legacy were community building and economic prosperity. The state has lost a dear friend in Steve, and we send our condolences to his family at this time. Though we are sad at his passing, we know his contributions will ring throughout the valley and beyond as builders today stand on the shoulders of his many accomplishments.”
