If you have found this page, you likely knew Marten as a barista and friend.
Marten was known for his cheery "Hello" whenever someone walked in the door, as well as his Dutch pride (though he knew they would lose the final game of the Women's World Cup anyway). He recently earned his second college degree while working at Starbucks and won the Barista Championship for our district area.
We will miss Marten's goofy smile, impeccable flat whites, and kind heart. He will forever remain a part of the Sandy Springs and Starbucks community.
Please consider donating in memory of Marten and in support of his wife, Valentina. Another devoted Starbucks barista, Valentina is mourning the loss of her beloved husband and friend. We hope this fundraiser will help with memorial costs and some time away from making coffee.
