Sheryl Sandberg Makes First Public Comment Since Husband's Death

On Tuesday, Sheryl Sandberg made her first public statement since her husband, Dave Goldberg, died suddenly while exercising on vacation in Mexico four days ago.

Hours after President Barack Obama wrote a stirring tribute on the White House’s official Facebook page, Sandberg responded to the post.

“Thank you President Barack Obama for this beautiful tribute — and for your friendship to our family,” she wrote. “Dave Goldberg admired you for your leadership, passion, and your deep love of sports.”

Sandberg, the chief operating officer of Facebook, also changed the cover photo of her Facebook page to a picture of her and her husband, who served as the chief executive of SurveyMonkey before his death.

Goldberg died Friday of a head injury after he was found on the floor of a gym at a resort near the Mexican coastal town of Puerto Vallarta. He was rushed to a hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.
