Julie Gomoll

August 5, 1962 — July 25, 2017

North Austin Location

Julie Ann Gomoll, of Austin, TX, was born August 5, 1962, in Milwaukee, WI to Inez and August Gomoll, died on Tuesday, July 25 in her home. She fought a life-long battle against depression but finally succumbed.

Julie lived her life as a true entrepreneur, on the edge and willing to take risks that few people would consider. She founded successful companies such as “Go Media” which launched her reputation as an on-line marketing visionary. Julie served as Austin's Mayor Kirk Watson's Technical Advisor, 1999-2000. She was recognized by President Bill Clinton for developing the Texas Technology Model of Excellence Access in 2003, and she won the City of Austin's Distinguished Service Award in 1998 for Community Building.

Beyond Julie’s intellect and passion for innovation she is beloved for her willingness to help and share her wisdom with anyone willing to ask. Her very direct personality combined with true compassion for helping others, empowered many people to successfully redirect their personal and professional journeys.

Julie was a world traveler, a voracious reader, a lover of music, an adventurous cook, an outspoken advocate for LGBT rights, and above all a love for friends, family and her most precious dogs.

She is survived by her siblings, Jeanne (Scott Custis), Steven (Linda), Dan (Kelly) Gomoll, and Rick’s partner Danny Field; by her nieces and nephews, Sara, Eric, Amanda, Rachel, and Jacob Gomoll; by hundreds of friends all over the world, and by her beloved dogs, Mr. Pants and Tip. Julie is predeceased by her brother Rick (10/23/1989), by her parents, August (5/5/2009) and Inez (9/7/2013), and by her dogs, Sadie and Kody.

Julie's body was cremated and no funeral service will take place. Friends and family are planning a November memorial event in Austin. Memorial donations can be made in Julie's name to Austin Pets Alive!
