“Michael Janowiak gave us incredible guidance as a member of our Board of Directors for the past three years,” said Mark Burish, Sonic Foundry’s Chairman of the Board. “He had a wealth of experience in print and online media and was always pushing and challenging us to think outside the box. We would like to express our condolences and sympathy to Michael’s family and friends during this difficult time.”

Mr. Janowiak, of Indian Head Park, Ill., also served on Sonic Foundry’s Audit and Compensation Committees.
