    My heart hurts along with all of you over the unexpected passing of Chris. Chris and I were co-workers at the IRS for many years and he was a wonderful person and friend. I lovingly called him “Chickie Baby” which probably goes back 15 or so years. We shared a love for Fleetwood Mac and he tried for years to get my vintage Fleetwood Mac poster. We will carry fond memories in our hearts and send many prayers for comfort and strength during this difficult time. Big Hugs!

    My prayers to the family and friends of Chris. He was one of my first unofficial Emergency Operations Center teachers and I learned important tips from him on what to do in my new role.

  • Maya Eastman Posted December 4, 2019 2:30 pm

    I’ve know Chris for many years as a co-worker and as a friend. When I heard the news my heart sank. He was such a fun and caring person who was taken from this world way too young. My sincere condolences to Chris’ family. Please believe that you will see him again one day.

  • Linda Reed Posted December 4, 2019 3:38 pm

    I can’t still believe it is real. I met my friend and colleague Chris nearly 20 years ago and we’ve enjoyed a lot of laughs over the years. He always had a story, especially about his family. Although we didn’t see each other much in person due to where we live, we always kept in touch. I’m so glad I was able to see him in Texas this past summer although I would have never imagined it would be the last time. My deepest sympathies to the Wiese family. I hope the many condolences you’ll receive can bring some peace during this terribly difficult time .Rest in peace friend

  • Bob Sinning Posted December 4, 2019 4:00 pm

    Chris was the best! Rest In Peace buddy!

  • MICHAEL SIGNORILE Posted December 4, 2019 4:38 pm

    My sincerest sympathy for your loss to Chris’ family, friends and companions. Chris and I were co-workers at the IRS for 18 years, during which time we both started as Administrative Officers and he was promoted to the Senior Commissioner’s Representative position, which he administered with pride and respect. You should know that Chris was a leader in the development of emergency management and preparedness practices and procedures at the IRS, and was very much respected by his peers. He was also a fun guy and a lovely person to know. He will be missed by us all. While this is a time to mourn his loss, it is also a time to celebrate his accomplishments at the IRS, for which he was very proud, and in life, to which we can all attest. I wish Chris the best in all the new and wonderful experiences that are ahead for him in spirit. He deserves them.

  • Kim Brown Posted December 4, 2019 10:09 pm

    Like everyone else I was shocked and so sad to hear about Chris passing. I worked for Chris and with him many years at the IRS and we just chatted recently about his upcoming retirement -,after just one year, I told him how wonderful it is. Just hard to believe he’s gone so suddenly. Sending my prayers to his family and friends during this difficult time.

  • Beth A Caufield Posted December 5, 2019 2:54 am

    I was stunned to learn of Chris’s passing at such a young age. I knew Chris while he was in our Des Moines office, and when he moved to Omaha and I had meetings I would always stop and chat and laugh with him. He was such an upbeat person! God bless you Chris!

  • Lauren Rauk Posted December 5, 2019 7:34 am

    There are many hearts among his IRS family that are very saddened by Chris’ passing, mine included. My condolences, thoughts, and prayers to his family and all others who loved and will miss him. I had the privilege of working directly with Chris for over a decade. He was a man of integrity, vision, expert in his field, and determination to accomplish organizational challenges as well as his personal goals. I am glad that we talked a month ago about his pending retirement. He was eagerly looking forward to his new life path. Chris will be sorely missed and fondly remembered.

  • Ronnie Simons (Taylor) Posted December 6, 2019 12:35 am

    Sending my sympathy & condolences to Chris’ family and friends. I was so heartbroken to hear about the passing of Chris. I worked with Chris for about 11 years and please know he was a dedicated hard worker. Sending prayers to all. May God give you the strength to get through this difficult time.

  • Toni Flinn Posted December 6, 2019 2:27 pm

    My heart is broken to know of all of Chris’s plans, following his retirement, that will not be realized. All of his plans involved being of service to others. He was looking so forward to this next chapter. I am sure he will raise his hand, in Heaven, to be of service at a higher level. 🙂 Rest in peace, my dear, sweet, funny friend. My sincere condolences to the Wiese family for the large gap Chris’s passing leaves in your family. Please fill it with love and service, as he would.

  • Ellen Rossell Posted December 6, 2019 9:17 pm

    RIP My dear friend…my heart breaks as I am just today hearing about his passing. I met Chris over 20 years ago when we worked at the IRS together. I can only imagine the heartache his family and friends must feel right now. I pray that each of you find comfort in your memories of Chris as I know that is what he would have wanted. You all are in my thoughts and prayers.
