Mentors influence their mentees in ways that not only shape them as professionals but also as people. In this essay, we draw upon our personal experiences with Professor Nick Trujillo, who died unexpectedly in October 2012, to describe the ways we were influenced by our relationships. We include the story of a last visit three weeks before his death, an interlude, and six lessons that chart the trajectory of our journeys as students, friends, and colleagues.
