Life is unpredictable and short indeed. Gone too soon, the late Mark Vincent Hurd was survived by his beautiful wife, Paula Kalupa, who is often remembered as the widow of the co-CEO of Oracle.

And, with no further ado, here's what you need to do about Paula Kalupa and her life beyond as the wife of Mark Vincent Hurd.

Paula Kalupa; A Former Employee At NCR Corporation

It was whilst working at the NCR Corporation, that her fate collided with her then-future husband. To your surprise, Mr. Hurd also worked at NCR Corporation at the beginning of his career before he was originally appointed as the President of Oracle.

Needless to say, it was NCR that brought these two together and closer. And, as one thing led another, Mark eventually asked out Paula on a date. Seemingly everything is history. And, it didn't take them long to become a couple.

Things couldn't have gone better for these then-two young love birds when they continually went stronger whilst they were still involved at NCR. But, Hurd knew he had to step up the game and finally proposed to Kalupa, before their wedding which took place in the year 1990.

Nearly three decades of marriage later, Kalupa and Hurd were still happily married with two smart and beautiful children, both daughters who are named after their mother's initial 'K' including Kelly Hurd and Kathryn Hurd, the younger one.

The elder one is married to her husband, Tommy Umberg. Speaking of Umberg, he is known for plying his trade at Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP as their corporate assistant.

Dealing With The Death Of Hurd

Sadly, Hurd left behind his family and the world on the morning of 18th October 2019, not long after he took a leave from Oracle to prioritize his health. The New York-born and bred was only 62 at the time of his death.

And, during his leave, Oracle informed that Larry Ellison and fellow CEO, Safra Catz would be in charge of taking responsibility for the company. Not to mention, Ellison also announced that Oracle wouldn't be hiring a new CEO the replacement Hurd.

Kalupa and the Board members of Oracle, however, are still yet to disclose the reason behind the cause of Hurd's death. But, certainly, Hurds' corporate vision and legacy will be undoubtedly remembered for eternal time.
