Neysa Tonks, a mother of three and an account executive for global enterprise solution provider Technologent, was one of the at least 59 people killed in the the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history.
"The Technologent family lost one of our own in this tragedy," said Technologent in a statement mourning the passing of Tonks, who lived in Las Vegas. "A great mother, colleague and friend, Neysa Tonks. She leaves behind three boys - Kaden, Braxton and Greysen. Neysa has brought so much joy, fun and laughter to Technologent – she will be greatly missed by all!"
Tonks has been a global account executive for Technologent for the last two years. Before joining Technologent she was a select account manager at Cisco for nearly five years, according to her LinkedIn profile.
Tonks was also a senior sales executive for Oracle's MICROS Systems, a provider of technology solutions for the hospitality and retail industries, for nearly seven years.
Technologent has asked for all to keep the Tonks family in their "hearts and prayers." The company has set up a GoFundMe Page on behalf of the Tonks family.
Technologent, which is headquartered in Irvine, Calif. and has 30 offices worldwide including an office in Las Vegas, mourned the loss of all those killed and injured during the tragedy.

"Even now, hundreds of wounded are fighting for their lives in emergency rooms in Las Vegas. Technologent grieves with Las Vegas and with all the families of those lost to inexplicable and senseless violence. Our hearts and prayers are with those families at this time."
Technologent also thanked the first responders and citizens who came to the aid of those that were attending the outdoor country music festival in the shadow of the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino where a gunman unleashed a barrage of bullets killing at least 59 people and injuring hundreds.
"Being part of the Las Vegas community, we want to thank the brave first responders and courageous citizens who came to aid those suffering around them," said Technologent. "Tragedy reveals the worst and the best of humankind. May we all draw hope and strength from their examples and pledge ourselves to appreciate those around us realizing each day is a gift."
